I’m working on a ethnic studies writing question and need guidance to help me understand better.
As part of your assignment, you will assume the role of an investigative journalist working on an article about the situation of immigrants at the U.S.-Mexico border. Using your knowledge of the various approaches to morals, ethics, and justice (Divine Command theory, libertarianism, utilitarianism, the fairness principle, etc.), consider the motivations of religious groups who favor immigration reform and more humane treatment of immigrants/migrants. What are the moral rationalizations they use to support their cause? What are the ethical implications of their support (think short-term and long-term advantages and consequences, who is benefiting, who is losing out, who stands to gain, what do they stand to gain, whose rights and liberties are they prioritizing, etc.)?
