Open the Gate for All

On April 22, this Joint Statement of Churches opposing the proposed revision of Japan’s Immigration Control and Refugee Recognition Act, which would expel refugee applicants, was delivered to the Immigration Services Agency with the endorsement of 50 churches and organisations in Japan, and 8 from abroad. Also delivered were several similar petitions and over 100,000 signatures, urging the government to scrap its proposal and to create a refugee and immigration system that respects the human dignity and rights of foreigners in Japan. Please support this effort with your prayers, and by sharing this document with others.
