FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 19, 2018
Congressman Crowley, Gutierrez, and Catholic Migration Services speak out against the inhumane separation of families at the U.S. border
Congressman Joe Crowley (D-Queens, the Bronx), Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, Congressman Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL), Fr. Patrick J. Keating, Esq., Chief Executive Officer, Catholic Migration Services, and other faith-based leaders will speak out against the human rights violations at our southern border, while hosting an immigration services forum in Corona today, June 19, at 12:30 p.m.
Fr. Patrick J. Keating, Esq., Chief Executive Officer, Catholic Migration Services said, “It is inhumane to rip children from their parents’ arms; to punish innocent children, just to deter immigration. We have all seen the images and heard the audio of poor, defenseless children crying for their parents. There has to be a more just way of dealing with the current immigration crisis. The administration has the authority to stop this immediately so that vulnerable children do not suffer any more psychological trauma. Surely, all people of good will can agree, that separating innocent children from their parents is not the answer.”
The forum is designed to inform immigrant and community members of the resources available to their families.
