*Interaction from the Hope for Peace and Justice “Imagination: Immigration 2” Panel I served on today (9/26).
Q: Where should our efforts to solve the immigration crises begin?
A: We must stop treating people like shit. We must learn to love our neighbors. The problem is that we don’t even know who our neighbors are. I bet most folks wouldn’t even be able to identify Mexico on a map. The level of ignorance and lack of concern exhibited on immigration in this nation is absolutely appalling. How can any person of conscience live comfortably behind the walled fortressed boundaries of the richest nation on the planet? So, I guess one can’t begin until they repent of their nationalism and get saved from our borders.
