Video: Immigration Raids and Church Response

Please check out this moving video shot and edited by our own on-the-ground correspondent, Sojourners Web assistant Matt Hildreth. Matt researched, made calls, and then stopped through Postville, Iowa, last Friday and got some great footage. It features Sister Mary of St. Bridget's, who has been ministering to immigrant families affected by the raid.

Our allies have been spreading this video around among activists all over the country and they're thrilled to have some interviews with real people telling their stories. Watch it:

Patty Kupfer is the Christians for Comprehensive Immigration Reform campaign coordinator at Sojourners.

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)
