The ELCA AMMPARO strategy is a holistic, whole church commitment by the ELCA to accompany people who are forced to flee their communities seeking protection from suffering or violence. As church together we work toward just and humane policies affecting migrants in and outside the United States.  ELCA AMPARO advocacy has repeatedly opposed Administration policies that pursue expansion of the detention of children and families as a deterrent to those who migrate or seek asylum in the U.S. The strategy calls instead for the U.S. government to keep families together while investing in programs that address the root causes of migration.
