The next time you hear conservatives claim Medicare for All is a radical idea, tell them that the only thing that's radical is that the United States is essentially the only industrialized nation that doesn't provide universal coverage.

Trump is now defying a Supreme Court decision that vacated his decision to add the citizenship question to the Census. One day after pledging that the 2020 census wouldn't ask about citizenship, the Justice Department reversed course today on orders from Trump. Impeachment.

To all my followers: it would mean a lot if today you looked up the original peoples of your land, and if you actually took the time to learn and pay attention to the history surrounding the place where you live.

I just told someone that some people are so poor, they can't afford to get jobs. He laughed. But I wasn't kidding. Gas money, child care expenses, and lack of clothing to meet dress code requirements are often barriers to employment for low income individuals. Now you know.

When Jesus said that we are to welcome the stranger, I’m pretty sure he meant that we shouldn’t rip kids from parents, put them in cages, and deprive them of basic hygiene products, medicine, and food.

The reports of the conditions for migrant children at the border should shock all of our consciences. Those created in the image of God should be treated with dignity and compassion, especially those seeking refuge from violence back home. We can do better than this.

If following Jesus isn't making you more merciful, it might not be Jesus you are following.

“We’ve dipped far below the standard of care into the realms of just utter darkness,” said State Representative Terry Canales of Texas . . . “We’re in a dark place as a nation, and it just breaks my heart.”

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” — Matthew 19:14 Just in case anyone claiming to be a Christian has forgotten.

To all Catholics in the US: On this Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, remember that these children are part of the Body of Christ. Christ is being desecrated on our country's watch. "What you do to the least of my brothers and sisters, you do to me" (Mt 25).

This is truly a revolutionary proposal: all Americans will get the college education or job training they need, while having all student debt forgiven. We bailed out Wall Street in 2008. It’s time to tax Wall Street’s greed to help the American people.

My heart is heavy tonight after a day along the border. There are amazing people doing all they can to respond with Christ-like compassion here in El Paso--the Church at its best. But there's also so much human suffering converging here, exacerbated by US policies in some cases
