TIFFIN FRANCISCANS CALL TO END SEPARATING CHILDREN FROM PARENTS

 

We, the Sisters of St. Francis of Tiffin, Ohio, are appalled at the inhumane treatment of our Latino brothers and sisters at our southern border. We call for an immediate end to the practice of separating children from their parents and from criminalizing those seeking asylum. We call for new immigration policies that respect the dignity of each person and honor the sacredness of family unity. In a spirit of solidarity with those who are vulnerable, we advocate for policies that reflect compassion, not cruelty, toward those who approach the United States with hope in their hearts.
