  • “When strangers sojourn with you in your land, you shall not do them wrong. The resident aliens who sojourn with you shall be to you as the native born, and you shall love them as yourself; for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.” [Lev. 19: 33f]

    In 2006, USF Vice Presidents and Deans spent five days in Tijuana, Mexico studying border issues. While there they heard from men and women.

    Sometimes my kids come to me and say, ‘Daddy or Mommy, I’m hungry.’ And I don’t have enough money to buy them food. And I can’t tell them I don’t have any money, but I don’t. I can barely put beans, potatoes and tortillas on the table with what I make. I will go anywhere even to another country to get food for my family. I feel awful, but nothing is worse than seeing your hungry child look you in the eyes, knowing you can’t give them enough to eat.

    Foreign Policy, economic policy and immigration policy are not discrete issues; they are all interrelated in a delicate ecology that must be attended to in its totality.
