This report explores theological and practical concerns individual Christian citizens, pastors, church workers, and congregations ought to consider with regard to immigration.

The report, published in both English and Spanish, is available online at www.lcms.org/ctcr and may be downloaded at no cost or hard copies may be purchased from Concordia Publishing House at www.cph.org or            800-325-3040      ; order #09-2624 (English); order #09-2625 (Spanish).
