We share our condolences with Paris and our support for refugees | Compartimos nuestras condolencias para Paris y nuestro apoyo continuo para los refugiados

Matthew 25:35 – “I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger, and you welcomed me.”

At CIS-NYC, our hearts are with the people of Paris and all people who are harmed by terrorism. We recognize that refugees from Syria are fleeing from the same violence that visited Paris last week. We strongly urge all governmental officials to continue accepting these refugees who are simply seeking safety. Welcoming refugees is a responsibility for all Catholics.

See the statement of condolences for Paris and continued support for refugees from the US Conference of Catholic Bishops here: http://www.usccb.org/news/2015/15-157.cfm

**In addition, Representative Hudson (NC-08) has drafted legislation that aims to essentially stop all Syrian resettlement. His effort is gaining traction quickly. It is very important that his office is flooded with positive calls about refugees and refugee resettlement TODAY. Please call his DC office at 202-225-3715 and/or his district office at 704-786-1612. To e-mail him please go to: https://hudson.house.gov/email-me**

Mateo 25:35 – “Porque tuve hambre, y me disteis de comer; tuve sed, y me disteis de beber; fui huésped, y me recogisteis.”

En CIS-NYC, nuestros corazones están con la gente de Paris y todas las personas que han sufrido por el terrorismo. Reconocemos que los refugiados de Siria están escapando de la misma violencia que Paris sufrió la semana pasada. Instamos encarecidamente a todos los miembros de gobierno a continuar aceptando a estos refugiados quienes están buscando simplemente su propia seguridad.
