<![CDATA[<strong>Sisters of Providence statement on anti-Muslim immigration policies</strong>]]>

The Sisters of Providence join their voices to those of the many U.S. faith groups that have spoken out in support of the humane treatment of refugees fleeing from violence in their homelands. The recent presidential ban on Muslim refugees ignores and contradicts basic human rights, as described in Catholic social teachings. The ban also violates the principles outlined in The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in 1948 and setting out, for the first time, “fundamental human rights to be universally protected.” The right to asylum is among these rights.

As Sisters of Providence, we cannot stand in silence when government policies violate our beliefs about the dignity and rights of each human person. Instead, we stand in solidarity with refugees and people of faith who denounce such discriminatory policies as those banning refugees from predominantly Muslim countries.
