Congregational leaders in the LDS Church should provide welfare assistance to undocumented Mormon immigrants as they would to any other church member, according to a purported policy paper from the Utah-based faith.
The June 2012 guidelines were posted on the MormonLeaks website earlier this week. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints would not comment on whether the three-page document was authentic, but other materials posted the same day by MormonLeaks drew cries of copyright infringement from an LDS official. Previous leaked Mormon materials on the site have proved to be credible.
The immigration document comes at a time when the Trump administration is cracking down on the flow of refugees into the U.S. and the millions of undocumented immigrants already in the country.
