Statement on Families Held at U.S. Southern Border

July 18, 2019

We, the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Rochester, NY, join with all those who stand for justice to call upon President Trump and Members of the U.S. Congress to take action to end the suffering of refugees at the U.S. southern border. Our commitment to the sanctity of life and the demands of justice require that we speak out on their behalf. We condemn the inhumane treatment of separating babies and children from their families. We call upon you to immediately implement policies and procedures that provide unaccompanied minors and families with proper space, hygiene, food, health care, emotional and psychological supports. It is imperative that they receive the legal representation accorded to them by national and international law.
