    Bishop Sally Dyck, Religious Leaders Demand Care for Children at the Border

    There will probably be 90,000 children coming to the US border this year, she said. That’s 92% more than last year. The violence in Honduras especially is forcing them to come because their parents are working here. The violence that undergirds our broken immigration policies is threatening the children. This is the call and the challenge. God is calling us to intervene in this sad story of immigration. Are you willing to say to President Obama, be generous! This land is their land too. We are tethered to the immigrants to this country and always will be. Fix this broken policy! We have no alternative but to be involved, she said -- our story of salvation is a story of immigration.

Dr. Slessarev-Jamir has done labor organizing in Washington, D.C. and community organizing in Chicago. She believes in not only serving as a scholar, but as a person actively seeking justice in our communities.
