(p.133) 5 Fear of the Other
Christians in the American Empire

Vincent D. Rougeau

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the issue of immigration and immigration legislation. It argues that the current tone of the immigration debate should be a cause of deep distress for Christians and perhaps even, a time for mourning. Christians should lament the economic and political structures in the United States that have so easily turned vulnerable human beings into instruments of economic gain, cheap political rhetoric, and nativist hate.
