A Better Life

Immigration is a struggle within our nation and around the world. How do we deal with the real people involved? Fr. Mike’s interview of Jose Jullian, a young actor in A Better Life, deals with this question. The movie centers on a father who struggles to get a job, standing on the street corners with the “cattle call” as Jose names it.Jose reveals that the young man he portrays in the film mirrors his own life. He grew up in the turbulent 90’s with a single parent mom, who was undocumented. They lived in a gang-infested area. He reveals that many immigrants whom he knows refuse to get into criminal activity. They don’t want that kind of life for themselves or their children.Then Fr. Mike talks about the five things that Catholic Bishops say we should do with regard to immigration.
