Pope Francis urges all to move ‘towards an ever wider ‘we’’ ahead of World Day of Migrants and Refugees
Since 2019, natural disasters have displaced nearly 35 million people around the world as the climate crisis has worsened.
In this event, we welcomed Rosa María Arias, who currently works as Coordinator in the Center of Attention for returned children and adolescents of the ISNA (Salvadoran Institute for the Integral Development of Children and Adolescents).
With the expectation of improving accompaniment and care of migrants, the Franciscan Network on Migration has formed a partnership with the non-profit organization Talentos in Argentina.
We demand unrestricted respect for the human rights of people in the context of human mobility within Mexican territory
We, the Franciscan Network on Migration (RFM), as well as various groups and civil organizations that defend the human rights of migrants, have monitored the detentions and deportations against people in Mcallen, Texas directed to the El Ceibo, Guatemala border, as well as also from different places in Mexico to Villahermosa and Tenosique, Tabasco
We, the Latin American Church Network and Caribbean Migration, Refuge, Displacement and Trafficking (CLAMOR) of the Latin American Episcopal Council, which brings together more than 600 organizations of the Catholic Church in Latin America and the Caribbean, have seen in recent days the development of the National Institute of Migration and of the National Guard in the south of the Mexican Republic´s operations to contain migrants in the city of Tapachula, Chiapas.
In the Encyclical Fratelli Tutti, I expressed a concern and a hope that remain uppermost in my thoughts: “Once this health crisis passes, our worst response would be to plunge even more deeply into feverish consumerism and new forms of egotistic self-preservation. God willing, after all this, we will think no longer in terms of ‘them’ and ‘those’, but only ‘us’” (No. 35).
