Vasquez of Austin recently hosted a meeting of Christian leaders called Christian Churches Today. They released a statement that said: “Each day in our congregations and communities, we bear witness to the effects of a system that continues the separation of families and the exploitation, abuse, and deaths of migrants. This suffering must end.”
