We have forgotten that this is about families. Immigration reform is about families. It’s not about numbers; it’s about families. – Bishop Minerva Carcaño
On Thursday, July 25th, a large group of faith leaders and lay people marched to the White House to give voice to their demand that the President suspend deportations of undocumented immigrants while Congress hashes out Comprehensive Immigration Reform legislation. Leading the group and delivering a petition bearing over 4,000 signatures was Bishop Minerva Carcaño, United Methodist Bishop of Los Angeles and the denomination’s official spokesperson on immigration issues. A passionate and outspoken advocate, Bishop Carcaño joined Welton in the studio to explain the importance of the movement not just to immigrants – but to everyone.
