LCWR Resolution to Action: Immigration Reform and Life and Death on the Border

"Because of the increased use of sophisticated surveillance systems, the arming of more tan 21,000 border gurards and the erecting of amost 700 miles of Steel 25-foot-high fencing, more than 5000 lives have been lost since the late 1990s."
LCWR Resolution to Action, Summer 2013

The Senate recently passed S.744:  The Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act.  This bill is a "mixed bag" with both positive aspects as well as other measures which threaten border communities.

Attention now is on the House of Representatives as they debate immigration reform
