Weekly Note

Fr. Damian Zuerlein (July 19-20) Last week we reflected on the words of the Bishop of Brownsville, Texas concerning the problem of respecting life of both the unborn and the undocumented. I’d like to continue the reflection on the Catholic concern for immigration by offering some thoughts on this very complex issue. I get frustrated with many reports about immigration because they provide simplistic and, sometimes, quite biased reporting on the reasons for the immigration issue.

Having been in Hispanic ministry for 14 years during the times of the greatest migrations to Omaha and continuing to do our mission trips to Guatemala, I feel confident in saying that the push for greater enforcement on the border ignores the real reasons families take desperate measures to leave home and move north. People in Guatemala during our recent trip told us that coyotes (those who transport the undocumented immigrants north) are now charging between $5,000 and $7,000 a person to “transport” them to the United States. The transportation is not “safe” as most of you know, and some will die on the journey.

So why do they come? The primary reason for leaving their home continues to be the crushing poverty they face in their homeland. The families we stayed with during our visit make an average of three dollars a day. On that three dollars they are expected to house, feed, clothe and educate their children while supporting themselves. Could you do it? They live in adobe houses with dirt floors; maybe they have a door and windows; maybe they have electricity; they certainly do not have running water or indoor plumbing. Malnutrition is rampant among the children. Infant death rates are high. There are no local doctors. No medical care. No dentists. No hope.  read more...
