Conversaciones con familias inmigrantes

Reviewed by Michelle van Loon.

“One of every five children in the United States today lives in an immigrant family. The majority of these children will become lifetime residents of the U.S., and their presence will affect the basic institutions of society.” Elizabeth Conde-Frazier quotes a think tank panel’s findings in order to focus our attention on the issues these children (and their parents) face.

The book’s 80 pages are in both Spanish and English. Though the book is brief in length, its seven chapters offer a helpful detail about the social and emotional journey often experienced by Hispanic immigrant families. Listen to the Children offers a particular emphasis on the experience of children with undocumented parents, but much of the material in the book is applicable to every immigrant family. From making the decision to leave a home culture in search of better economic prospects to the challenges of re-forming a family unit in an alien culture, Conde-Frazier allows the voices of both children and parents to describe their particular experiences. The conclusions she offers about the kinds of care and support these families need are not in-depth solutions, but wise and empathetic first steps for the teachers, clergy, social workers, friends and relatives who are involved with these families.

Immigration is one of today’s most pressing issues, one on which there is much fear, misunderstanding and tension.

We hope that you will be able to join us for this important conversation – in English and Spanish – on the church and immigration.

Reviewed by Laretta Benjamin.

[  EDITOR’S NOTE: Although this book is about three years old now, we didn’t give it a proper review when it came out, and with the coming No Longer Strangers conference on the Church and immigration that we will be hosting, we wanted to take this opportunity to review it…]

Qué el Señor nos illumine y otorgue entendimiento.  May the Lord illumine us and grant us understanding is the prayer the author prays in the opening pages of his writing. I would be so bold as to add “and all the people said, Amen”. Oh that we as God’s people truly had those renewed minds and hearts Scripture speaks of, then we might actually begin to see things as God sees them and not as they are colored by our nationalities, our cultures and our personal agendas.  Christians at the Border is an incredible encouragement to God’s people to be a reflection of the wisdom of God and the humility, grace and mercy demonstrated in Christ in the midst of all the immigration rhetoric.
