The Strangers No Longer Circles of Support at Our Mother of Perpetual Help and Christ, Our Light!  have had the opportunity to support and get to know some immigrant families in southeastern Michigan. We have come to see that there are many stories to hear and every one is different. Why do these immigrant families decide to make such a dangerous journey? What do they experience in their travels? What do they hope for from the U.S.?
Some of the members of the SNL immigrant women Circles of Support have made the difficult and courageous decision to reach out to our parishes and share their lived experiences. 
Their stories are real and heartbreaking but they want to share them with us to help Americans understand how U.S. immigration policy affects real people.
"To hear and understand their stories is like planting the seeds for new relationships between immigrants and the American people. This is a chance to build bridges to work together for a significant change for immigrants."
