    Hundreds Of Members At Sessions' Church Write Formal Complaint Over Immigration Policy GTSA

    From The Hill

    Brooke Seipel of The Hill wrote:More than 600 members of the United Methodist Church signed onto a letter Monday condemning Attorney General Jeff Sessions for the Trump administration's policy of separating migrant parents and children at the U.S. border.

    In the letter, the group of churchgoers, including clergy and church leadership, accuse Sessions of child abuse, immorality, racial discrimination and dissemination of doctrines contrary to the standards of the doctrine of the United Methodist Church.

    They note in the letter that Sessions is a member of Ashland Place United Methodist Church, in Mobile, Ala.

    "While other individuals and areas of the federal government are implicated in each of these examples, Mr. Sessions - as a long-term United Methodist in a tremendously powerful, public position - is particularly accountable to us, his church," the letter reads. "He is ours, and we are his. As his denomination, we have an ethical obligation to speak boldly when one of our members is engaged in causing significant harm in matters contrary to the Discipline on the global stage."

    The letter comes as President Trump and his administration face backlash over its policy to separate migrant families.

    Sessions announced the so-called "zero tolerance" policy earlier this year, saying the Department of Justice would criminally prosecute all adults attempting to illegally cross the southern border into the U.S. As a result, families who crossed together would in some cases be separated, he said.

    Trump has repeatedly blamed Democrats for the policy, and administration officials have asserted that only Congress can fix the issue by passing immigration reform.

    Members of Congress have introduced legislation to end the practice of separating families, while simultaneously urging Trump to unilaterally stop the separations.

    I am so glad that the United Methodist Church stepped up to say, "This is not who we are, and most importantly, this is not of God."  Now, it's time for the rest of America to say the same thing.  Everyone from Trump to the members of his Administration who stands by this "policy" need to hear it from the American people... WE THE PEOPLE.  We are better than this.  We are stronger than this.  We are supposed to be the nation that stands by this quote by Emma Lazarus:
    Emma Lazarus wrote:“Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me:
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”

    Just saying
