Mexican priest to lead ‘caravan of hope’ for immigration reform
March 12, 2013
Father Alejandro Solalinde, a Mexican priest, will lead an “Interfaith Caravan of Hope for Immigration Reform Beyond Borders.” The caravan will depart from San Diego on April 29 and arrive in Washington on May 31.
“What concerns and hurts me the most are the abuses and deaths of the thousands of people” who attempt to enter the United States, said Father Solalinde, who has sought support from Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH Coalition and the Council for a Parliament of the World Religions.
