A Top ELCA Leader Calls Updated Travel Ban 'Racist and Xenophobic' and the ELCA Posts This on Their Social Media
President Trump's updated immigration policy, which applies heavy restrictions on immigration from certain countries, is being branded as racist by a top Evangelical Lutheran Church in America leader. A recent ELCA Facebook post shares an article written by Assistant to the Presiding Bishop of the ELCA Kathryn Lohre and highlights the quote,
"We are denouncing this policy not only as anti-Muslim, but also as racist and xenophobic..."
The updated policy added the following countries to the United States immigration restriction list: Kyrgyzstan, Nigeria, Eritrea, Myanmar, Sudan and Tanzania.
The ELCA has always been against the "travel ban," but they cheapen real racism and xenophobia by trying to brand this policy as such.
The fact that one of the top leaders in the ELCA wrote this, and the ELCA chose to share and highlight this quote in their social media, should be concerning to all.

Any sane nation would want to make sure that people entering its borders don't have ties to radical Islam, just as we want to make sure people entering the country don't have the COVID-19 virus.
