Immigration Crisis: Lives at Risk at our Southern Border

Event Type: Community Meeting

Every day, we are bombarded with news reports of a new policy or program intended to stop migration across our southern border. These policies are putting lives at risk as God’s people seek a new life of peace, hard work, and prosperity in the United States. In Massachusetts, thousands of miles away, we sorrow for them and we empathize with them. But we struggle with how to help them.

Please join us for a conversation with people on the front lines, helping those seeking a better life to safely immigrate to our country. From this conversation, you will:

  • Hear firsthand stories about the impact of the Trump administration’s immigration policies
  • Connect with others committed to standing up for the human dignity of all God’s people
  • Learn what you can do to make a difference

Speakers:

  • Father Pat Murphy is the Director of the Casa del Migrante in Tijuana, Mexico a house for 150 for migrants and refugees. He was ordained a priest in 1980 and since then his ministry commitments have been mostly with the Hispanic community in places like Chicago, Los Angeles and Kansas City.
  • Iván Espinoza-Madrigal is the Executive Director of Lawyers for Civil Rights, the organization that filed the first lawsuits in the country against the Trump Administration to protect sanctuary cities; to save temporary protected status on behalf of Honduran and Salvadoran immigrants; and to block immigration arrests in courthouses.
  • Westy Egmont is Professor Emeritus of Macro Practice at the Boston College School of Social Work. With a Doctor of Ministry and experience both in pastoral counseling and executive leadership at anti-poverty social service agencies, Egmont has focused his work on the human needs and social services of newcomer communities, immigrant rights, and the complex, dynamic process of immigrant integration.
