The press is concerned with polls and primaries, numbers of delegates, and the reporter's hopes for exciting contested conventions. But many faith leaders are concerned with the moral quality of our national discourse -- how much fear, division, and even hate are dominating over trust, compassion, and even love.
Our immigrant communities have rightfully earned dignity and respect through years of hard labor without any relief. Miami is a cosmopolitan city.

Even after Donald Trump's big wins on Tuesday, a majority of Republicans remain skeptical of his first policy suggestion, telling pollsters on their way out of the voting booth, as they have for months, that they want the immigrants to stay.
Young people worldwide, who have been more affected than their elders by the financial crisis, identify with one another more than they ever have in the past.
