We Stand in Solidarity with Immigrants
By Sister Karen
Undocumented immigrants are among the most vulnerable among us because their lack of legal standing prevents them from seeking redress for injustices perpetrated against them. Their plight highlights our broken immigration system, the racism that continues to run deep in the fabric of our society, and the underside of corporate-driven globalization that destroys local economies and forces people to migrate in search of work.The public is invited to join 400 Sisters of Mercy from across North, South and Central America as we gather this Saturday, June 25, 9:30 a.m., on the campus of Saint Xavier University in Chicago to stand in solidarity with our immigrant sisters and brothers seeking fullness of life.
