Justin Ashworth, a scholar of theology and race, believes that immigration debates in the US are opportunities for chruches to contribute a unique perspective to social analysis and to rethink the meaning of peoplehood in less racialzed ways. Ashworth contents that if Christian theology carefully addresses questions of belonging-Who's in? Who's out? On what basis?- it may be good news for immigrants and natives alike.
