“Getting Beyond Borders: Finding Our Way to Just Immigration Reform”
Increasingly punitive enforcement policy and the absence of just immigration reform continue to reshape the cultural, political and economic landscape in the U.S. Through their various lenses as journalist, activist, community organizer and immigrant advocate, Jose Herrera, Christine Ortiz, Marcel Honore, Jorge Mujica offer concrete suggestions for action as they highlight the burden carried by immigrant families, the Undocumented and Unafraid Youth Movement, the growing stress on border communities, and the high price we all pay if our congregations, our neighborhoods, our nation fail to grapple with this pressing concern.
