Welcome is American, and Americans are welcoming. As president of Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, I represent an organization that has been welcoming newcomers to the United States since 1939. Throughout our history, we have worked with churches and organizations across the nation to bring those fleeing persecution and seeking new opportunity to the United States. Welcoming immigrants and refugees is a fundamental part of being American.
