Introduction

Nearly 1 out of 6 people in the world, more than 1 billion people, are migrant workers. Of these migrant workers, 72% are women. The work they do is usually poorly paid, low-status work that citizens of wealthier countries are happy to pass on as an "opportunity" to migrants escaping poverty. Two of the most common jobs are domestic and farm labor.

On September 30, 2011, Regent University hosted a conference, “Exploring Immigration from a Biblical Perspective,” with speaker Dr. Richard Land, President of The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of The Southern Baptist Convention; followed by responses from Regent University faculty. The conference was sponsored by the Center for Latino Leadership in partnership with the Center for Christian Thought and Action, the Robertson School of Government and the School of Divinity.
