USA/SJM

The California province of the Jesuits has published a statement (http://www.jesuitscalifornia.org/Document.Doc?id=436) declaring their solidarity with migrants in opposing the new anti-migrant law that was passed in the state of Arizona (SB 1070). Another statement condemning the law has been published by the Jesuit Service for Migrants (SJM) of North and Central America. Read the statement here (in Spanish): http://www.sjweb.info/sjs/articles/documents.cfm?LangTop=3. In addition, the students at a Jesuit school in Arizona, Brophy College Prep, have been very active since the passing of SB 1070. The school’s office of Faith and Justice organized the students to take several trips to the (Arizona) Capitol to lobby. Students made signs and stood along with other Arizonans who opposed SB 1070.
