Archbishop Gustavo Garcia-Siller: America’s Immigration Laws are Broken and Wrong

Tags: Currents World News

A tractor trailer carrying dozens of dead or dying migrants that wound up in San Antonio managed to pass through a checkpoint in the U.S.

An Associated Press report, citing a U.S. official, says the migrants were already in the truck when it passed the checkpoint about 26 miles from Laredo.

A total of 53 migrants died in the sweltering heat inside the trailer.

Three people were arrested, including the driver of the truck, in what’s being called one of the deadliest migrant incidents in U.S. history.

Joining us now to talk about how the church is responding to this tragedy is Archbishop Gustavo Garcia-Siller of the Archdiocese of San Antonio.
