Writer seeks immigration news in all print issues

To the editor:

In the issue I just read, there was no mention of the immigrant crises. There have been other (Catholic Courier) issues with much immigrant news.

I am writing to suggest that every issue update its coverage of the immigrants living in Rochester. I am talking about how many are here, where is their housing, what schools do the children attend, where do they receive their medical care etc., in order to make the problem real.

A photo of the old Holiday Inn would show the conditions in which some of them live. Many immigrants, in fact all, have made heroic effort to escape the abuse in other countries. Highlighting one family per issue may inspire others to volunteer in small ways or large projects.

Publishing names and phone numbers of places that could use volunteers might inspire others to offer their help. A box with highlighted news in each issue would be great.

EDITOR’S NOTE: We appreciate the suggestion and do endeavor to highlight this issue whenever possible. One example is this issue’s in-depth report on asylum seekers, which will be the basis for an upcoming a multimedia project on our website.

However, the nature of news makes it impossible to commit to coverage of any topic in every print edition. And, as always, we strongly encourage readers to visit CatholicCourier.com for an abundance of written, photographic and video content — on numerous topics — that cannot be accommodated in print.
