A Letter to Support Border Security Enhancements and Asylum Reform

Letter sent to Members of Congress on May 12, 2023

December 2023 brought the highest number of arrivals to the U.S.-Mexico border ever recorded. At the same time, members of Congress have been involved in lengthy negotiations over policy changes to our border security and asylum processes.

At the 2023 annual meeting, Southern Baptists called on lawmakers to “provide clear guidance for immigrants and asylum seekers,” “maintain robust avenues for valid asylum claimants seeking refuge,” and “prioritize measures that secure our borders and to provide adequate resources to border patrol and those working in our immigration system.”

It is with this guidance that the ERLC will continue to urge Congress to pass needed immigration reforms that uphold our ideals of order, the rule of law, and compassion.

A letter was sent to Members of Congress on May 12, 2023.
