This week marks National Migration Week. This year’s theme is “Out of the Darkness” referring to the figurative darkness where many immigrants, especially vulnerable immigrants like children, the undocumented, refugees, and victims of human trafficking, find themselves while living in the shadows or on the margins of society in the United States. The Catholic Church seeks to helps these groups come out of the darkness to live full lives in their communities.
