THE "BIRDER" ON "MIGRANTS AND THE DREAM ACT"
There is a very clear connection between my love for nature, birds, wildlife and my involvement in "Migrant Ministry" as a Redemptorist Missionary priest. The two yearly bird migrations are SPRING and FALL. In both cases the neo tropical migrant birds are seeking a place for nesting, nourishment and the creation and protection of their young. It is very much the same with the many human beings who have come, many with their children, to the North. They "migrate to live, to nest, to eat...to survive". One of our recent disappointments who had hopes for the 80,000 or so children of undocumented immigrints was the possibility of the passing in the recent legislative session of the DREAM ACT which would be a route to documenting the many talented and hard working children who arrived here with their parents. As a hope for the New Year which we begin, I present this small video on the DREAM ACT.
