Felicidades!

"Posada," a moving film about unaccompanied immigrant children, which we profiled in a January 2007 issue of America, garnered the Best Short Documentary Award from the 2008 Orlando Hispanic Film Festival on October 12. 

Congratulations/Felicidades to Mark McGregor, SJ, the Jesuit who produced and directed "Posada" with production assistance from Fairfield University and Loyola Productions, Inc. In 2007 the Religion Today Film Festival honored "Posada" with a special prize for "Religion & Human Rights."  At Gonzaga University in Spokane now, McGregor coordinates the Posadas Project, a nation-wide project that promotes Las Posadas and justice for immigrants. The film is a great way to learn more about the question of immigration, so central to our national discussion on caring for the poor and marginalized.  For more information, see www.posadas-project.com

Two undocumented immigrants from Sinaloa, Mexico live with me and eat with. I do this so that they have more money to send to their wives and children back home. One of my friends has not been home in about a year and a half. The other one has not been home in over two years. They are both day laborers. The undocumented immigrants in our country live in bondage to our violent immigration system.
