welcoming the stranger

This looks like this might be a helpful book; Welcoming the Stranger: Justice, Compassion and Truth in the Immigration Debate by World Relief staffers Jenny Hwang and Matthew Soerens. Here's a description:

"In this book World Relief staffers Matthew Soerens and Jenny Hwang move beyond the rhetoric to offer a Christian response to immigration. They put a human face on the issue and tell stories of immigrants' experiences in and out of the system. With careful historical understanding and thoughtful policy analysis, they debunk myths and misconceptions about immigration and show the limitations of the current immigration system. Ultimately they point toward immigration reform that is compassionate, sensible and just, as they offer concrete ways for you and your church to welcome and minister to your immigrant neighbors."

Let me know what you know about this book.
