Dignity and Justice
By: Linda Dakin-Grimm
A remarkably forthright and uncompromising exploration of Catholic conscience. --Kirkus Reviews
This compelling account of the life-and-death struggles migrants face in the United States demonstrates how broken the system is, and the deep harm that it does to struggling families and communities. Author and lawyer Linda Dakin-Grimm, who represents children and families pro-bono in immigration proceedings, offers a proposal informed by Catholic faith for a comprehensive immigration reform and shows how ordinary people can contribute to solving this difficult and polarizing issue.
