Jesuit Immigration Reform
This weekend, 1,800 young people from Jesuit and Catholic high schools and colleges in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and El Salvador gathered for the Ignatian Family Teach In to reflect, network, share, and advocate for a more compassionate and just world.
I am always moved by their optimism and commitment to justice. Now more than ever our world needs to learn from their example.
Today these young people will be meeting with their elected officials to discuss the importance of compassionate and humane immigration policy and criminal justice reform.
Please join me in solidarity with them by contacting your elected officials to advance policies that respect the God-given dignity of every person, be they immigrants, refugees, or prisoners.

Our young people give me hope. Let us pray for their success today and join them in building a better world.
