As members of the human family we share a common home, earth. In our interdependent globalized world, we recommit ourselves to reform our immigration laws. We seek legislation that is just, inclusive, responsible, respectful, and allows for full participation in our community. We believe that immigrants rights are human rights," said Sister Bernadine Karge, OP of the St. Viator Catholic Church.

The event ended with fellowship, conversations and light refreshments.
