    ICE Raids Cruel, Immoral and Inhumane

    The Trump administration is acting like the leaders of the biblical Sodom, whose primary sin, according to rabbinic literature, was their abuse of foreigners and their xenophobia. The people of Sodom acted out of fear, hatred, and intolerance. It is shameful that our country is following their example. With these raids, our country is acting as another Sodom: A place where injustice masquerades as rule of law. We call on our leaders in government and law enforcement to be guided by justice and mercy, and to take a compassionate and moral approach to the immigrants who now call our country home.
