El Hambre está relacionada con la inmigración

¿Por qué la inmigración es cuestión de hambre?

Las personas que aquí viven y trabajan sin documentos se encuentran entre las más vulnerables en nuestro país. Tienen más probabilidades de vivir en la pobreza y de batallar para obtener alimentos. La tasa nacional de pobreza es de 14.8 por ciento, pero entre los inmigrantes, esta cifra sube al 30 por ciento. Es probable que la tasa de pobreza para fa-milias indocumentadas sea aún más alta. Además, los inmigrantes indocumentados tienen casi doble la probabilidad que la población en general de experimentar inseguridad alimentaria (24 por ciento comparado con 14 por ciento).

Nosotros consideramos la política migratoria siempre dentro del marco del hambre y de la pobreza, y como un camino hacia el crecimiento económico. Nuestro enfoque es informado por nuestra fe como una organización cristiana comprometida con poner un fin al hambre y la pobreza, en nuestro país y en todo el mundo. La política migratoria puede ayudar a reducir el hambre y la pobreza en nuestro país y en los países de origen.
