Catholic Charities USA, a national organization representing 166 diocesan Catholic Charities agencies, is deeply concerned about the recent policy of family separation at the border. We recognize that protecting and securing our borders is important, yet we must find ways to ensure the safety of refugee children,
some of whom are babies and toddlers.
Join us in lending your voice, your prayers and your commitment!
The ongoing practice of separating children from their parents has, as of May, left nearly 2000 children separated from their parents. As Bishop Vásquez, Chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Migration, and Sister Donna Markham OP PhD, president and CEO of Catholic Charities, remind us – as a nation and people of faith, we can and must do better.
