Unitarian Universalist Association Policy on Immigration

The Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations (UUA) has been explicitly on record in support of more just immigration policies since 1963. In a statement entitled “Immigration,” the 1963 General Assembly recognized that the outdated system “contradicts the founding principles of the nation and is at variance with national needs and international responsibilities.” In dozens of resolutions over the years, the Association has affirmed that:

  1. All people—without regard to immigration status—deserve access to fair wages, education, housing, healthcare, and other social services; and
  2. Immigrants are at high risk for being denied basic rights and services and thus warrant our special support.

The Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations and Unitarian Universalist Service Committee joined with 60 other religious groups in signing the Interfaith Statement In Support Of Comprehensive Immigration Reform (PDF). The Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations is also one of the more than 20 members of the Interfaith Immigration Coalition.
