Bishop of Juarez calls for Mexican government to help migrants

JUAREZ, Chihuahua (KVIA) -- The Diocese of Juarez organized a mass in support of migrants in the city, calling for support and empathy.

The morning mass was conducted by Juarez's Bishop José Guadalupe Torres Campos in celebration of Saint John the Baptist, patron saint of migrants. During the homily, the Bishop encouraged Juarez and Borderland residents to help the migrants.

In addition, Bishop Torres talked about the uncertainty and loss of hope migrants had when Title 42 expired. Priest Francisco, director of La Casa Del Migrante, mentioned that migrants are now more hopeful because they have access to reliable information.

Dozens of migrants currently staying at La Casa Del Migrante attended the mass to commemorate this day.
