    Sep 18, 2014: Since the Artesia, New Mexico detention facility for families who cross our border without documents opened three months ago I have hoped for an opportunity to see it and to visit those who are detained there.  My opportunity came this past Saturday, September 13th when I decided to attend the funeral of the father of a priest serving in my Diocese of El Paso.  Accompanied by a transitional Deacon for the Diocese I began the 200+ mile journey at 6:00 a.m..  We drove west out of El Paso and within two hours of travel through sparsely populated desert landscape we found...

    Sep 17, 2014: Each year on September 17, we come together as a nation of immigrants to celebrate Citizenship Day.

  • Sep 1, 2014: This Labor Day: Let’s Defend the Children
    Sep 1, 2014: In recent months we have all been troubled by the images of unaccompanied children, already traumatized by events in their home countries, and exhausted and frightened after a perilous journey, being apprehended at the southern border of the United States.

The political pandering around this crisis has only added to our Nation’s shame.
