“I believe the government has a responsibility to care for people who are arriving with credible claims for asylum and a responsibility to assist anyone in desperate need within our borders. It is an honor for the Church and for Christians in general to serve these vulnerable people. We do not begrudge the opportunity, but our resources and our volunteers are being significantly strained by the scope and duration of the high arrival numbers.”

Most Reverend Mark Seitz, Bishop of El Paso
