Closing of Lackland’s Housing

Archbishop’s Statement on Closing of Lackland’s Temporary Housing of Unaccompanied Minors.

Archbishop Gustavo García‐Siller issues statement upon the closing of the temporary housing for unaccompanied minors at Lackland Air Force Base.
With the closing of the temporary shelter for unaccompanied minors at Lackland Air Force Base, we continue to hope that the government will ensure that these children are cared for in compassionate and safe settings, when possible with family members or loving foster care.
The closing of Lackland’s facility only completes a chapter of this humanitarian crisis, but by no means ends our reasons to be concerned for these children.  We urge that the administration, and all those responsible for their care, to remain committed to providing each of them with the opportunity to tell their story and ensure the due process that will protect their human rights and safety.  It is through their stories that we can better understand the level of fear and abuse that motivates families to let their beloved children risk everything to escape the danger that has robbed them of their childhood innocence.

While the temporary housing at Lackland perhaps was not the ideal situation for the care of children, I must thank those in charge for providing a level of care that met their basic needs.  We trust that the children will continue to have access to educational opportunities, adequate legal resources, and
necessary pastoral care in their new residential facility.

I am grateful for the generosity of all people of our community who have given so much of their time, talent, and treasure to help them in whatever ways possible. I know I can count on our community to continue to show its concern for the plight of these unaccompanied children immigrants and to be
generous in helping them wherever they are housed in the future.  I am confident that  Catholic Charities, St. Peter‐St. Joseph Children’s Home, Seton Home, Caritas Legal Services, the priests and people of the Archdiocese of San Antonio stand ready to respond to meet the needs of these children
whose lonely pilgrimage to safety has not yet ended.

Most Reverend Gustavo García‐Siller, M.Sp.S.

Archbishop of San Antonio
