Gathering calls for immigration policy to recognize human dignity of immigrants

The United States must do a better job of welcoming immigrants and refugees, not because of what they can do for the country but because they are human beings. That was the main message of “You are My Neighbor. Immigration: Who is Affected, Why You Should Care and What You Can Do,” a March 1 gathering hosted by Southside Catholic Peace and Justice and more than 40 faith groups and community organizations at St. Barnabas Church, 10134 S. Longwood Drive.
