Happy Advent! This week, we feature “Posada, A Night to Cross All Borders.” In English with Spanish subtitles, this 57 minute DVD brings us inside the stories of three young men who fled impoverished lives in Central America as teenagers. Detained by immigration officials for several months between 1999 and 2002, their stories are typical of thousands of children crossing America’s borders annually. Their stories are woven into scenes from Advent Las Posadas processions in which community members join the Holy Family’s journey for shelter. This documentary by Jesuit Father Mark McGregor invites us into a collective examination of conscience concerning American immigration law.
