A nationwide movement is in the works to create solidarity in immigration reform. On Saturday, October 5, 2013, an event will be held at St. Peter's Catholic Church, 815 East Meyer Boulevard, in Kansas City, Missouri, between 1:00pm and 3:00pm.
This event will feature music, recipe-sharing, testimonies, community call-to-action, and lots of chips and salsa. Everyone is welcome and invited to attend. This event is to help gain understanding about the immigration issues that are common in the United States.
Leviticus 19: 33-34 says, "When an alien resides with you in your land, do not molest him. You shall treat the alien who resides with you no differently than the natives born among you; have the same love for him as for yourself; for you too were once aliens in the land of Egypt. I, the Lord, am your God," (The New American Bible, 2008, Wichita, KS: Devore & Sons, Inc.).
It has become commonplace for immigrants to come into our country. Some are legal, some are not. Laws need to be written or rewritten to allow for the rights of the people who desire citizenship in the United States. The process to become a citizen should be understandable and something that is able to be accomplished.
