Jesus was an illegal alien!

Millions of individuals and families are living here in the U.S. in violation of U.S. immigration laws. But as a Christian, I firmly believe we have to take a more penetrating look at the situation because we believe we are all subject to a Higher Law.

Making the Connections: U.S. Domestic Agricultural Policy and International Trade, An Interfaith Perspective

Every person has the right to an adequate amount of nutritious food, through production or purchase, to sustain a dignified human life. Despite decades of domestic and international initiatives, however, 852 million people on Earth are still hungry.

The way that the United States structures its food and agricultural system has global consequences. How people eat and the agricultural policies that are set by U.S. politicians directly affect the lives of farmers and farmworkers, consumers and citizens, both domestically and internationally. Changes to U.S. domestic agricultural policy, in conjunction with restructuring international trade and investment policy, have human rights implications and the potential to alleviate or exacerbate poverty and food insecurity worldwide.

Debates surrounding the 2007 Farm Bill, the piece of legislation outlining U.S. food and agricultural policy, have already begun and the livelihoods of many people, both domestically and internationally, depend on the outcome of these debates.
