Jesuit Refugee Service and Partners: 80+ U.S & Mexican Catholic organizations call on Biden and AMLO to end MPP “A coalition of more than 90 Catholic groups that support, protect, and advocate for refugees is calling on U.S. President Joe Biden and Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, both themselves Catholics, to end the “Migrant Protection Protocols,” (MPP) a cruel and illegal Trump-era policy that was restarted this week, forcing people seeking safety to wait for their immigration hearings in Mexico.”

Baby Kinito christening: We share happy memories from this past month, the christening of Baby Kino.
