February 29, 2012, Fr. Fred Kammer, SJ, addressed the 200-plus participants in Catholic Day at the Capitol gathered to oppose anti-immigration bills in the Mississippi legislature.  Seven bills are pending in the Mississippi Senate and one bill in the House.  The Dioceses of Jackson and Biloxi, sponsors of the event, asked JSRI staff to assist with preparation of the event as well.  This included preparation of materials for the packets for participants, an article by Dr. Sue Weishar in the Mississippi Catholic on February 24, 2012, and analysis and strategy sessions about the pending bills.  Fr. Kammer's remarks at the Wednesday session are here.
