Immigration (81006-C2-¶162)

Add a new paragraph called Immigration to the Social Principles ¶ 162 The Social Community.
Our world is constantly changing and our societies are growing more and more diverse as new nationalities are added to our communities. We encourage the society and the Church to embrace this diversity and advocate for programs that will integrate the immigrants in the society. We affirm the immigrants’ rights to food, shelter, clothing, education and health care. We encourage the congregations to help immigrants integrate into society and help them understand their new culture.

Rationale

There ought to be a section on immigration.
