Nuns on the Bus Tour for Immigration Reform

Earlier this week, federal authorities raided fourteen 7-Eleven stores in Virginia and on Long Island, N.Y. for harboring and hiring illegal immigrants. U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch said in a statement, “these defendants ruthlessly exploited their immigrant employees, stealing their wages and requiring them to live in unregulated boarding houses.”  The arrest shines a light on the vulnerability of undocumented families in America – which is also the mission of the Nuns On The Bus, currently touring across the country to rally crowds around immigration reform. “What I’ve never known until we came on the road was the fear of families who are living in the shadows,” says Sister Simone Campbell, executive director of NETWORK.
