During their annual meeting, the Jesuit Migration Network of Central America and North America (RJM-CANA in Spanish) issued a public statement calling attention to the realities of migration facing people throughout the Americas. Disseminating the message from Tijuana, Mexico, currently, an epicenter for Central Americans seeking asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border, the RJM-CANA meeting delegates called for regional governments to act with “justice, inclusion, and promotion of equity” for migrant people in mind.
The Jesuit Migration Network of Central America is part of a larger network that serves all of Latin America and the Caribbean, seeking to provide effective, coordinated, and comprehensive assistance to migrants, displaced persons, and refugees from very diverse areas: pastoral, educational, social, research, etc. In the United States, participation comes from Jesuit universities, high schools, parishes, and social ministries.
The statement, originally published in Spanish can be found in English below.
