The people pushing HB116 as "the" compassionate approach to illegal immigration usually reduce the discussion to a prototypical representation of a nice hard-working family that will be ripped apart by enforcement of immigration laws.
This reductive process, however, needs to be challenged.
There are many dimensions to compassion and how illegal-immigration impacts communities in the U.S. and, indeed, the nations from which many illegals come as well.
Father Bascio passionately touches upon a larger view of how illegal-immigration affects the U.S. and the world.
He is well worth paying attention to and his ideas are important to consider.
