Bishop denounces mistreatment of immigrants passing through Mexico

.- Bishop Leopoldo Gonzalez Gonzalez has called on Mexicans and their leaders to stop abusing Central American immigrants who cross through Mexico on their way to the United States.

Referring to the extortion and fraud that many immigrants traveling to the United States suffer, Bishop Gonzalez said that if they are not going to be helped during their travels, at least they should not be abused, because ‘the Lord cares for the pilgrim (and) he does so through us so that we will take care of them.”
 
Likewise, he pointed out that the agreement signed between federal and local governments not to separate immigrant mothers from their children and that they be allowed to stay together ensures that families will not be split up. “This should motivate us to make the lives of our immigrant brothers and sisters more humane.”

Bishop Gonzalez said he is praying that the United States will carry out just immigration reform for the thousands of Latin Americans who are seeking the American dream.
