Religious Groups Organize and Express Support for Migrant Children

child-immigrants-HEAD-smAs thousands of migrant children continue flooding across the US border, Christian, Jewish and Muslims groups have designated this an Interfaith Weekend of Compassion and Prayer. Religious groups have been providing some aid to care for the children.

They’ve also been lobbying officials to change immigration and deportation laws. A top Vatican official visited Mexico this week urging protection for migrant children. He delivered a letter to the international community from Pope Francis calling for an end to “racist and xenophobic attitudes.”

    Americans/Canadians like their drugs as evidenced by all the publicity about movies stars and entertainers either dying of an overdose or entering rehab numerous times. Drug rehab is big business and we offer our support and sympathy to all of those with this “illness.” This surge of migrants is the price we pay and we owe it to them to help make them safe, since we have exploited their poverty to obtain drugs. You reap what you sow. Even if you can say “I have never used recreational drugs”, shame on anyone who refuses shelter, food, refuge to anyone. “Whatsoever you do to the least of my brother, that you do unto Me.”
