Luma Simms Joins EPPC, Will Focus on Immigration

January 3, 2018

EPPC is pleased to welcome as its newest fellow Luma Simms, whose work will examine the individual, communal, ethical, religious, and philosophical dimensions of immigration.

Mrs. Simms’s essays, articles, and book reviews have appeared in a variety of publications including First Things, The Federalist, Public Discourse, and the Institute for Family Studies website. Her Arabic television and American radio interviews include topics from religious freedom in the Middle East, Congress and DACA, immigration and the Middle East, to divorce and parenting. Mrs. Simms was Associate Fellow at The Philos Project where her research and writing focused on a Christian presence in the Middle East, the sovereign existence of the Jewish people, anti-Semitism, personal and national identity, and immigrant life and thought.

“With her insightful writing on the broad array of issues related to immigration, Luma is a great addition to our outstanding corps of scholars,” said EPPC President Ed Whelan. “I’m delighted to have her on board.”

“I’m pleased to join the accomplished group of scholars at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, men and women I have long admired. I believe in the mission of EPPC, applying the Judeo-Christian tradition to the human problems of our day with the long view in mind; it is at the heart of my own work on immigration. I look forward to a fruitful relationship as a fellow with them,” said Mrs. Simms.
