Bellarmine Joins with Other Local Jesuit Schools to Meet with Member of Congress

Lofgren Meeting News Blurb, Lofgren, Meeting

Local Jesuit school representatives met with U.S. Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D- CA) at her District Office in San Jose on October 7.  Bellarmine College Prep, Santa Clara University, Cristo Rey San Jose Jesuit High School, and Sacred Heart Nativity Schools joined in solidarity to encourage Rep. Lofgren to continue her efforts in asking for immigration policies that honor the human dignity and family unity of migrants, especially asylum-seekers.  The meeting with Congresswoman Lofgren, who chairs the Congressional Subcommittee on Immigration and Citizenship, came during the same week that Jesuit provincials from throughout the country were scheduled to meet in Washington, D.C. with officials from the Department of Homeland Security on behalf of those fleeing violence and insecurity in their home countries who are seeking asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border.
