Protection and care
· U.S. Bishops for fleeing young migrants ·
Bishop Eusebio Elizondo, Auxiliary Bishop of Seattle and chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Migration, called upon President Obama and the Central American presidents to protect and care for children and families fleeing violence in the region. “The leaders should focus upon the protection of these children and families, as they are charged with as the heads of their nations,” said Bishop Elizondo. “Instead of cooperating on intercepting them and sending them back to dangerous situations, they should work together to protect them from those dangers, including providing them asylum in neighboring countries and in the United States.”
