USCCB report highlights plight of Southeast Asia’s refugees

September 22, 2016

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Migration & Refugee Services office has issued a report on the situation of refugees in Southeast Asia, some of whom are victims of human trafficking.

Much of the report was devoted to Myanmar (Burma).

“I join my brother bishops in the Burma region and elsewhere to pray for peace and continued reform and rebuilding in the country,” said Auxiliary Bishop Eusebio Elizondo of Seattle, chairman of the USCCB Committee on Migration. “I pray for continued protection, humanitarian assistance, and pursuit of durable solutions for all those who are displaced.”
