A POWERFUL INVESTIGATION INTO THE IMPACTS OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION,
This review is from: On The Immorality of Illegal Immigration: A Priest Poses an Alternative Christian View (Paperback)In this book Father Bascio takes an in-depth look at the role of Christianity and the Church in the nation's debate on illegal immigration. The book offers powerful insights of the wide-ranging problems associated with illegal immigration and gives voice to those communities often devastated by the current system.
Father Bascio makes a compelling case for why America's poor are the chief victims of illegal immigration and why many Christian leaders fail to acknowledge its devastating impacts. As a life-long civil rights activist and woman of color myself, my experience has shown that illegal immigration ensures that the most vulnerable Americans at the bottom end of the economic scale will remain there. For Father Bascio, this is a true social injustice that cannot be tolerated. This book is a must read for anyone interested in illegal immigration and the state of America's poor.
