  • Welcome is American

    | Linda Hartke

    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.

When in 2006 my family and I got tired of all the "immigrant bashing" in Georgia and decided to start a family initiative to welcome them to our communities (which quickly became a "movement"), I was surprised by the backlash…
