Chaldean Christians and those who support are concerned about the lack of activism from fellow merican Christians who aren’t vocal enough about the the potential deportation of hundreds of Chaldeans to Iraq from the United States, Religion News Service reports.
The deportation of Chaldean Christian back to their Muslim country of Irag has been labeled a deaht sentence by concnerned Christians, including Billy Graham’s son, Franklin Graham
“I find it very disturbing what I have read about Chaldean Christians being rounded up by ICE for possible deportation,” Graham said in a statement. “I would encourage the president to have someone investigate these cases thoroughly.” —
He continutes, “I understand a policy of deporting people who are here illegally and have broken the law,” he continued. “I don’t know all of the details, but I would encourage our president to give great consideration to the threat to lives of Christians in countries like Iraq.”
And he’s not the only one who thinks that Christians need to take a bigger stand in protecting Chaldean Christians from deportation.
“They could be doing a lot more,” he said. “They could be saying, ‘Wait, we have been fighting to protect these people in their ancestral lands and now we are sending them back to those areas that we’re not doing enough to protect them” –Martin Manna, president of the Chaldean Community Foundation
