Divine Saviour & St. Ann


Laudate pueri Dominum laudate nomen Domini - Ps. 112.1

15 September 2019

Twenty-Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Imagine being among those who heard Jesus address the Pharisees and scribes in the encounter we hear in today’s Gospel: ‘What man among you having a hundred sheep and losing one of them would not leave the ninety-nine in the desert and go after the lost one until he finds it?’ Would you leave ninety-nine in the desert in order to find one lost sheep? In the parable, Jesus is showing us the depths of God’s love, the illogical, incredible love God has for each of us. Moses counted on this loving mercy as he spoke for the wandering people; Saint Paul acknowledges his reliance on it in his letter to Timothy. God desires to draw you close, seeking you when you are lost. Are you ready to be drawn into God’s loving embrace?

Understanding ICE enforcement

 Best practice recommendations

 Three immigration workshops available next week

Please share the flyer of the link below with anyone who would like to attend one of three workshops we will have next week. The workshops will include resources featured below and legal professionals who can offer free advice. CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD THE FLYERS

General resources

The Justice for Immigrants website has a one-page document with Spanish and English links to:

 The Catholic Legal Immigration Network also has a page dedicated to resources for legal help, guidance on understanding your rights, guardianship planning, and information on how to prepare for the end of status.


Entendiendo el trabajo de ICE

• ICE no sale a la c”omunidad para verificar el estado legal de las personas al azar. Tienen una lista de casos prioritarios y, con mayor frecuencia, saben dónde encontrar a esas personas.

• Los casos prioritarios para ICE incluyen (pero no se limitan) a cualquier persona que haya recibido una orden final de deportación por parte de un juez federal, cualquier persona que esté indocumentada y haya sido arrestada por un policía, cualquier persona que no haya asistido a una audiencia judicial de inmigración o que haya evadido un “aviso de comparecencia”.

• Otra forma en que los agentes federales pueden detener a una persona es cuando se encuentren con policías que estén cumpliendo órdenes en casos como los mencionados anteriormente. Esto se denomina “arresto colateral” y es muy probable que suceda si una persona no puede demostrar que tiene estatus legal.

• La policía local y los alguaciles no piden prueba de estatus legal. No hacen cumplir la ley de inmigración, pero siempre deben respetar y cooperar con todas las autoridades policiales.

Recomendaciones de mejores prácticas

• Evitar cualquier actividad ilícita o criminal. Si una persona indocumentada es arrestada se convertirá en una prioridad para ICE.

• Incluso los activistas que son indocumentados pueden ser detenidos y esas personas serían de alta prioridad para ICE.

• Evite asociarse con personas indocumentadas que hayan sido arrestadas en el pasado. Ellas son consideradas objetivos de alta prioridad, y usted debe evitar ser un “arrestado colateral”.

• No huya de, o impida que los agentes federales cumplan órdenes. Esto puede llevar a cargos adicionales y la situación puede ser más grave.

• Si usted se encuentra dentro de uno de los grupos de personas enumeradas anteriormente entre las prioridades de ICE, busque un abogado. No busque ayuda legal de grupos de activistas o de abogados inescrupulosos. Vea abajo la lista de contactos de abogados.

• Si ha recibido una notificación para comparecer en la corte de inmigración, usted debe presentarse. El no aparecer le convierte en una prioridad para ICE.

• Si le deportan y le atrapan intentando regresar ilegalmente a los EE. UU., es posible que usted enfrente serios cargos. Los tribunales de inmigración son más agresivos ahora en estos casos y el castigo es más severo.

• Si usted o alguien que conoce está detenido, no tiene que firmar nada y debe buscar la ayuda de un abogado.

Tres talleres de inmigración disponibles la próxima semana

Comparta el volante en este enlace con cualquiera que desee asistir a uno de los tres talleres que tendremos la próxima semana. Los talleres incluirán información de recursos que se detallan a continuación y profesionales legales que pueden ofrecer asesoramiento gratuito.

• Videos de “Conozca sus derechos” que se pueden ver en teléfonos móviles

• Información sobre la importancia de registrarse en su parroquia

• Información sobre proveedores de servicios legales locales
