UNITED STATES: Tension among migrants increases

“If one wants to understand the impact of the raid that U.S. border guards have carried out in more than 60 communities across the country since the beginning of February alone, let us listen to the children: They do not want to go to school because they think that their parents are going to be taken away while they are not there,” says Archbishop José Gomez of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

“We have children at the Dolores Mission,” says Ellie Hidalgo, in- charge of the social pastoral of the parish, "who, if their parents arrive late home from work, immediately become anxious. The situation is becoming very tense," continues Hidalgo: “And if their parents do not return home, where will those children end up? In parishes across the country, we are offering information meetings to help people without documents so they can learn about their rights, how to proceed.”
