MMS Response to President Trump’s Executive Orders

Medical Mission Sisters join many others in strongly objecting to President Donald J. Trump’s recent executive orders barring refugees and banning nationals of seven nations from entry into the United States.  As an international Community of 500 Sisters and 100 Associates of 23 different nationalities we see justice as integral to our mission of healing.  We treasure the dignity and potential of those who are made poor and are denied justice.  They are the ones who will be most affected by these executive orders. We echo the words of Pope Francis, “We are all children of God.”
