AMERICA/CHILE - Promote real integration for migrants in Chile” demands Cardinal Ezzati

Tuesday, 8 August 2017

Santiago (Agenzia Fides) – "It is important to accept migrants, but this is not sufficient, we must integrate with them, and this means making laws to foster genuine integration with relative respect for human rights", says Cardinal Ricardo Ezzati, Archbishop of Santiago de Chile. “Let us hope that very soon Chile will have a law which achieves integration and as a consequence, national unity", the Cardinal said in a report sent to Fides.
Cardinal Ezzati on Saturday 5 August took part in annual celebrations organised since 2003 by the Bolivian community resident in the Chilean capital, in honour of Most Holy Mary, Our Lady, under the title of ‘Virgin Copacabana’.
