Reflections from the Borderlands

By Josh Protas

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), April 2007

The author asserts that the narrative of immigration from Mexico strikes familiar chords for the American Jewish community, ourselves the progeny of immigrants. The staggering number of deaths happening in the U.S.-Mexico borderlands presents a humanitarian crisis that demands our attention and involvement. The crisis calls us to join with other communities of faith to work to achieve a practical, just and humane immigration policy.
