first_img Benn Robinson (centre) out of the World Cup after injurying his kneeWallabies prop Benn Robinson has been ruled out of this autumn’s Rugby World Cup.The 26-year-old, who celebrates his 27th birthday next Tuesday,  underwent an arthroscopy in Sydney this morning after stumbling at training yesterday and feeling a “click” in his knee. While the injury at first didn’t appear serious, further examination today has shown that he has torn the anterior cruciate ligament of his right knee, while also damaging a meniscus in the joint. An operation in the coming days will be required to repair the damage, with the timeline required for recovery curtailing the rest of his season.“It’s disappointing news for Benn, disappointing news for the rest of the squad and for Australian Rugby as a whole,” Qantas Wallabies coach Robbie Deans says. “No one likes to see injuries like this. The seemingly innocuous circumstances in which it occurred only adds to the frustration, but injuries have always been a part of the game. When the door closes for one player, it opens for another and I’m sure the other front rowers we have will step up to fill the void Benn leaves. As far as Benn goes, we wish him all the best for his recovery and will be providing him with any assistance he needs.”Robinson had been scheduled to feature in his 43rd Test during Sunday’s Castrol Edge Rugby Test against Samoa at ANZ Stadium in Sydney. Western Force prop Pekahou Cowan and NSW Waratahs prop Al Baxter have both joined the Qantas Wallabies in training today, with Baxter featuring in both of the day’s sessions while Cowan arrived in from Perth in time to join the afternoon session. Both players were involved in the recent national scrum camps that were held by the Australian Rugby Union.

first_imgOne good thing about that postponement in Paris from Ireland’s perspective – Johnny Sexton is now fit. The fly-half had a sore groin three weeks ago but was ready to play. By giving him the No 10 shirt, Declan Kidney has shown he trusts Sexton to run a game in whichever way suits. He needs to replicate the kicking masterclass seen so often by Ronan O’Gara. More than any other side in the championship, France have a back three to hurt you from deep.Too close to call?The lineout should be evenly matched, so, too, the experience in each camp, with both line-ups containing more than 600 caps. However, France have a better scrum, more quality to come off the bench and a more clinical edge, turning a high percentage of their scoring opportunities into tries. They carved out nine line breaks in their first two championship games and converted six of them! They seem able to soak up long spells of pressure without being breached and, at third, are ranked five places higher than Ireland in the world rankings.The facts point to a French victory but Michael Cheika, ex-Leinster coach and now with Stade Francais, says: “It’s going to be real close. It’s going to come down to one individual who’s prepared to make the difference – that’s what happens when good teams clash.”Verdict: With 20 wins from the last 21 attempts over the Irish on home soil, France should nick it.FRANCE v IRELAND, STADE DE FRANCE, SUNDAY 4 MARCH, KICK-OFF 3pm.

The two will do battle again on Sunday By Alan Pearey, Rugby World Deputy EditorSO, here we go again. Three weeks and a day after the teams were left kicking their heels in Siberian Paris, France and Ireland meet to decide who will chase Wales hardest to the RBS 6 Nations finishing line.Since that shambolic postponement, France have beaten Scotland unconvincingly and Ireland have done a number on the Italians. Ireland have the same line-up while France, who were troubled by Ross Rennie at the breakdown in Edinburgh, have reconsidered the wisdom of fielding two No 8s by replacing Louis Picamoles with a lineout specialist, Julien Bonnaire. Maxime Medard is out for the year with knee damage, so Clement Poitrenaud is recalled at full-back.Ominous patternIreland’s last nine Six Nations matches have finished: won, lost, won, lost, won, lost, won, lost, won. Not a good omen! More significant, they must try to break one of the great hoodoos of international rugby: since 1972, Ireland have won just once away to France, the magnificent March day 12 years ago when a young Brian O’Driscoll announced himself with a hat-trick.This time O’Driscoll is unavailable, and in his absence the Irish midfield was trampled on last month when Wales sent their huge backs into the wide channels. There’s no George North for Ireland to contend with in Paris, but there is Aurelien Rougerie and Julien Malzieu, both hugely physical. Ireland need to do what they failed to do against Wales – get their big hitters more spread out across the defensive line so that smaller defenders, notably Keith Earls, aren’t isolated. If Rougerie runs into Stephen Ferris or Sean O’Brien he’ll know about it.Critical: Dave Pearson punished Ireland in last year’s fixtureReferee factorFew people outside the respective squads take much notice of the referee, but the name Dave Pearson will send a shiver down Irish spines. Last year Ireland outscored France three tries to one but were undone in Dublin by six penalties, five of them kicked by Morgan Parra. Pearson was the referee that day, too, and he is known to be strict at the breakdown, favouring teams who like quick ball.France have the same back-row unit as then, which means Thierry Dusatoir – the IRB Player of the Year and looking as sharp as ever – will hope to have a decisive impact against Ireland’s trio of bruisers. France’s counter-rucking was impressive at Murrayfield and the breakdown will see some mighty collisions.Kicking accuracylast_img read more

The total shareholding sold was worth £1.9 million (US$2.97 million). As a result, none of the three national investing bodies of the Church of England hold shares in the company.The Church of England first raised concerns with the Board of News Corporation in the aftermath of the phone hacking allegations that surfaced in July 2011. After a year of dialogue between the company and the EIAG, the Church of England was not satisfied that News Corporation had shown, or is likely in the immediate future to show, a commitment to implement necessary corporate governance reform.Andrew Brown, Secretary of the Church Commissioners, said: “Last year’s phone hacking allegations raised some serious concerns amongst the Church’s investing bodies about our holding in News Corporation. Our decision to disinvest was not one taken lightly and follows a year of continuous dialogue with the company, during which the EIAG put forward a number of recommendations around how corporate governance structures at News Corporation could be improved. However the EIAG does not feel that the company has brought about sufficient change and we have accepted its advice to disinvest.”In 1994 the Church of England established the EIAG, the independent advisory group which advises the Church of England’s three national investing bodies on its ethical investment policy. The EIAG engages on ethical and corporate governance issues with many of the companies in which the Church of England has its main equity holdings. Between April 2011 and March 2012 the EIAG held meetings with 40 companies prioritised for engagement, one of which was News Corporation.The Church of England already excludes investment in companies involved in military products and services, pornography, alcoholic drinks, gambling, tobacco, human embryonic cloning and high interest rate lending.The Church of England has three national investment bodies: the Church Commissioners for England; the Church of England Pensions Board; and the CBF Church of England Funds. Together they hold a broad range of assets worth in excess of £8 billion ($12.51 billion). The funds are used to sustain the Church’s network of 12,000 parishes, 16,000 churches, 8,500 stipendiary priests – and their pensions – and 10,000 readers and pastoral assistants and to support the daily work they carry out in their local communities.NotesThe Church Commissioners for England manage a well-diversified investment portfolio, held mostly in company shares and property, to produce money to support the Church of England’s work across the country. The Commissioners were formed from the union in 1948 of two earlier bodies – Queen Anne’s Bounty and the Ecclesiastical Commissioners – set up to support the work of the Church.The Church of England Pensions Board provides retirement services set by the Church of England for those who have worked for or served the Church. It was established in 1926 by the Church Assembly as the Church of England’s pensions authority. Subsequently it was given wider powers in respect of discretionary benefits and the provision of retirement accommodation to those retired from the stipendiary ministry and their dependents.The Ethical Investment Advisory Group (EIAG) makes recommendations on ethical investment policy to the Church of England’s three national investing bodies. The EIAG includes representation from the Church of England’s General Synod, Archbishops’ Council and Council for Mission and Public Affairs, as well as the investing bodies. The EIAG has no investment powers and acts in a wholly advisory capacity. It is the responsibility of the Trustees of each separately constituted investment body to decide whether to implement the advice given.

ENS photo/Mary Frances Schjonberg[Episcopal News Service] While Hurricane Sandy dealt a devastating blow to homes, businesses and church buildings six weeks ago on the night of Oct. 29, Episcopal Church congregations along the New Jersey Shore have been determined since the first hours after the storm to care for their communities and help them rebuild.They are doing so, in many cases, with help from congregations farther west in the diocese where the damage from Sandy was less severe. And many churches are working in their communities through already-established or new, post-Sandy ecumenical ties.In Point Pleasant Beach, for instance, the Roman Catholic parish became a center for clothing distribution when its priest suggested to the Rev. C. John Thompson-Quartey, rector of St. Mary’s by the Sea Episcopal Church, that division of duties. St. Mary’s is already known in the community for the St. Gregory’s Pantry, which operates out of the church. Point Pleasant Presbyterian has become the coordination point for work teams coming into town to help with long-term recovery.A statue of Jesus appears to be keeping watch over donated food in the boiler room of St. Mary’s by-the-Sea Episcopal Church in Point Pleasant Beach, New Jersey. ENS photo/Mary Frances Schjonberg“Each church finds [itself] doing something unique and different that they didn’t anticipate prior,” said Thompson-Quartey, who said he told a recent meeting of the local ministerium that “sometimes God throws us a curve ball and creates opportunities for ministry in the midst of that.”All ministerium members agreed, he said, that “they displayed skills they didn’t think they had. One person said, ‘I’m now an expert on mold. If you ever want to talk about mold and drying, I’m your guy.’”“St. Mary’s turned out to be the feeding place,” Thompson-Quartey said. “We feed people.”Since Sandy, the congregations and the Diocese of New Jersey to which they belong have been  “creating linkages, making connections, that’s our job and that’s what we’re attempting to do by the grace that God gives us,” Bishop George Councell said in a recent video message.The stories of those links and connections are almost as numerous as the 154 congregations that make up the diocese. The diocese has 17 official resource centers, shown here, as well as any number of other churches where community residents came to donate or to get help. Stories of some of that ministry are here.And in some instances, the congregation’s ministry has changed in the six weeks since Sandy hit. Now at Christ Episcopal Church in Toms River, a township of about 91,000 people that lost 20 percent of its taxable base in the storm, there is a Sunday afternoon support group for any adult who needs a place for “reflecting and processing the emotional and/or spiritual feelings you’ve experienced in the weeks since Sandy struck.”The township encompasses both mainland areas and parts of the Barnegat Peninsula that acts as a barrier island between the Atlantic and Barnegat Bay. In the days immediately after the storm struck, the needs were basic.“First of all, let us know you are OK. We are praying for you and need to know you are alive,” the parish asked its members Nov. 2 on its Facebook page. “Secondly, are you displaced? Water in your home? Car submerged? Belongings destroyed? Hungry? Cold?” The posting urged members to get in touch with Christ Church’s rector, the Rev. Joan Pettit Mason.Among Toms River residents’ first tasks after the hurricane was mucking out their flooded or destroyed homes, and Christ Church became a place for the donation and distribution of cleaning supplies. On Nov. 7 Pettit Mason again turned to Facebook, posting a plea for a truck or trucks to collect 1,000 free “mold-out” bucket kits from the Bronx and bring them about 85 miles south to the church.When Phyllis Jones, Diocese of New Jersey’s chief financial officer and a member of St. Martin’s Episcopal Church in Bridgewater, learned of the truck plea, she said she turned to fellow parishioner Chuck Inman who works as the fulfillment manager for the Metropolitan Museum of Arts’ retail operation. She knew he had access to trucks and suspected he’d be inspired by the need. He was, she said, and managed to get all 1,000 kits to Christ Church where a bucket brigade of parishioners, Boy Scouts and other volunteers unloaded them all into the church.It was a good example, Jones said, of how churches are often the places that step in, “picking up the things that fall through the cracks of the major recovery efforts.”For many churches on the Jersey Shore and even farther inland, ministry began in an unplanned way: out of a desire not to have perishable food go to waste after Sandy’s fury knocked out power for what turned out to be weeks in some cases. St. Mary’s in Point Pleasant Beach and St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Keansburg are but two examples. A video report on St. Mark’s efforts is here.The morning after the storm in Point Pleasant, Thompson-Quartey was surveying the church and rectory for damage (it was minimal) when he saw people carrying food to the nearby Fire Department to feed first responders. When he asked if they might need more, Thompson-Quartey said he got a hearty “Yes.”One of the leaders of the pantry managed to call him despite the power outages to tell him to “let the food go to anyone who can use it.” Thompson-Quartey said two men came with a large truck and worked by flashlight in the basement unloading thawing food from the pantry’s five freezers for use at the Fire Department and at the shelter at the borough high school.Meanwhile, neighbors and local businesses began bringing donations to the church. The parish’s pre-Sandy plan to begin a Thursday night weekly community meal called “Mary’s Table” on Nov. 1 was somewhat in question. Until, that is, Laurie Clayton, the leader of the first meal’s team, called to say that it was three days after the storm and some people had not had a hot meal since.When Thompson-Quartey noted the lack of electricity, Clayton said she replied, “They’re either going to be sitting at home in the dark or sitting here in the dark with company.”The team began cooking while it was still light, firing up the kitchen’s gas stove. Clayton’s husband ran an inverter from his car so that they could hang some work lights in the kitchen for when it got dark. Mike Mercuio, a local real estate agent who trained in the Army as a cook, was the chef. Jersey Mike’s sub shop brought over salad and rolls when they heard St. Mary’s was serving and Joe Leone’s, a local caterer, brought 15 trays of pastas, according to Thompson-Quartey.Clayton worried that some people might not know about the meal that first night. “We realized that we needed to get food to people where they were,” she said.She rounded up some volunteer drivers and the team filled take-out containers that had been bought as part of the weekly meal’s supplies.“We told our drivers to go east of the railroad tracks, go to the lakes, go to the ocean,” she said. “We knew people there were cold and wet.”About 100 people came to eat and between 300-400 meals were delivered at the height of what turned out to be a daily meal for the next month.And food for the meals just kept appearing. After the first three or four nights, Clayton said she and the others realized that pasta and sauce were wearing thin, and they wished aloud for some meat. Minutes later, a refrigerated truck from a Salem County in southwest New Jersey, showed up, its driver asking if they could use any ham, roast beef or ground meat.The need for a daily meal began to decline about a month after Sandy and Mary’s Table is now being set once a week at St. Mary’s. Clayton wants to continue to publicize the meal to folks still living in local motels and the ones still living in the homes, perhaps on the upper floors after Sandy demolished the interior of their ground floors.Meanwhile, the pantry (a separate organization to which the parish gives space) returned to its regular schedule of being open for two hours every weekday after a month of being open seven days a week until 5 p.m. Sue Dietz, one of the pantry’s four directors, said she has been overwhelmed by “the volunteers, the need, the generosity, the devastation, the heartbreak.”People knew to come to St. Gregory’s after the storm, Dietz said, and they did, and they needed everything: food, cleaning supplies, toiletries, blankets. And others knew that the pantry would need those things. “An avalanche” of donations rolled into the church and the pantry, Thompson-Quartey said.Dietz said some of the donations had to be turned down. For instance, she refused donations of used bedding. “Their hearts were in the right place,” she said of the donors, but the pantry operators were worried about health concerns and thought that “because you’re displaced doesn’t mean you don’t deserve to have something new.”It was one of the many lessons they have learned, Dietz said. “You have to learn as you go; you had to think on your feet and sometimes you have to change your mind,” she said.The pantry and the church also gave supplies to other churches and organizations. And they are now turning away donations until their inventory is depleted. That inventory is stored all over the building as well as in donated space off-site.The leadership for these sorts of ministry at St. Mary’s came from the congregation, said Thompson-Quartey. “When I found myself trying to lead from the front, I got sick,” said the rector, who spent two days in the hospital being treated for high blood pressure he did not know he had.When he returned, he said, Clayton told him what they need from him was “your approval of things we think need to happen and we’ll do it.”Diocesan CFO Jones said she has been moved by these kinds of stories of ministry as she has traveled around the diocese since Sandy and helped connect resources to needs. Time and again, she said, she has been given “a whole new perspective of what ‘in it for the long term’ really means.”Jones said that Episcopal Relief & Development and Church Insurance have both helped the diocese and its congregations meet immediate needs and plan for the long haul that faces the diocese and the state. “I can’t say enough about them,” she said. Members of Episcopal Relief & Development’s U.S. Disaster Program and Partners in Response team have come to the diocese more than once since Sandy.She suggested that local Episcopal congregations “can probably play a unique kind of role” in the long-term recovery effort by offering people all types of support and organizing advocacy efforts for hard-hit communities. Jones sees that role as suited to the congregation because the churches are rooted in those communities and will be there long after the immediate crisis is over and the media have turned elsewhere.— The Rev.

He said the diocesan companion links formed an important bedrock where relationships were mutual and inter-dependent and were a wonderful sign of the “bonds of affection.” Kafwanka also spoke of the new Youth Awards, created to encourage innovation and highlight successful work.“Joining the dots” was the way the Rev. Terrie Robinson, director for women and church in society, described her work. She painted a bleak picture of the world faced by many women and girls – of forced marriage; female genital mutilation; sexual violence in war; trafficking and the threat of so-called honor killing. Robinson said change was hard to achieve but Anglicans were responding – and explained her role was to tell the stories of successful initiatives and lobby at the highest level for change.The positive response by Anglicans in the face of a torrent of humanitarian crises around the world was the theme of the report by the Rev. Flora Winfield, the Anglican Communion’s representative at the United Nations in Geneva. She described her role as “working on behalf of the world’s most disregarded people.”She said the church had provided “outstanding service” often when Anglicans themselves were suffering the consequences of the disaster too. International relief agencies were creaking under the weight of the demands on them, but the communion was providing help on the ground, quickly and with love. Winfield explained her role in educating the church about the institutions of the UN – and raising “faith literacy” within the UN – and her part in ecumenical and interfaith work.ACC members also heard from Director of Continuing Indaba the Rev. Phil Groves about how this initiative was bringing people together in places as diverse as Kenya, New York and India. Groves said the project had now become a process and was being used around the world to build community, energize mission and provide a context to resolve conflict.He explained how indaba had been used by two warring clans in Kenya and had resulted in them rescinding aggressive oaths dating back to the 1960s; how it was being applied in Burundi in the face of conflict; how it had been used by the Diocese of New York to unite an incredibly diverse range of parishes and how indaba had resolved a dispute between dalits and tribal people in Northern India.Andy Bowerman and Rachael Carnegie reported back on the work of the Anglican Alliance and its three pillars of development, relief and advocacy. They conceded that the Alliance was relatively new and still learning how to have an impact – but then listed a wide range of areas and initiatives. One example from Rachael detailed support for a business project in Kenya, while Andy explained how the Alliance helped to energize a vast campaign to lobby the COP21 climate conference in Paris.The session concluded with a short report from the new director for communications, Adrian Butcher, who took up his post just before ACC16. He paid tribute to his predecessor, Jan Butter, and expressed his desire to build on the vision to establish worldwide communication network. Butcher spoke of the need for training and his desire to see positive stories about the work of the communion shared more widely and more effectively among what he described as “this wonderful worldwide family.”The directors are mainly based at the Anglican Communion Office in London.

Foto de Crecen, vía Facebook.[Episcopal News Service] La Iglesia Episcopal y organizaciones ecuménicas asociadas le han pedido al Congreso que actúe si la administración Trump rehúsa reconsiderar su decisión de terminar las protecciones migratorias para casi 200.000 salvadoreños en EE.UU. a quienes durante años les han permitido echar raíces y criar a sus familias en comunidades estadounidenses.En cuestión está la política conocida como Estatus de Protección Temporal (o TPS por su sigla en inglés). El gobierno de Trump ha asumido una posición radical sobre esa política, diciendo que nunca tuvo el propósito de ofrecerles a los inmigrantes residencia permanente. El estatus suele concedérsele a extranjeros provenientes de países que sufren desastres naturales o guerras.En noviembre, el Ejecutivo ordenó la terminación del TPS para más de 50.000 haitianos para mediados de 2019. El presidente Barack Obama había aprobado esa designación de TPS luego del terremoto de 2010 que devastó a Haití.Los salvadoreños constituyen el mayor grupo al que se le ha permitido permanecer en Estados Unidos conforme al TPS. El presidente George W. Bush le concedió a los salvadoreños protección de deportación luego de un terremoto que afectó a El Salvador. Ahora, los salvadoreños tendrán hasta septiembre de 2019 para obtener residencia permanente legal en Estados Unidos o abandonar el país.“Si hay algún grupo de personas [sobre las cuales] uno pueda imaginar un amplio acuerdo de que no deben ser deportadas, son estas personas”, dijo Sarah Lawton, líder laica de la Diócesis Episcopal de California que ha hecho de la sensibilización hacia los salvadoreños “una cuestión esencial para mí”desde los años 80 del pasado siglo.Las familias salvadoreñas a quienes ayudan agrupaciones religiosas en San Francisco son miembros contribuyentes de la comunidad local, dijo Lawton, feligresa de la iglesia episcopal de San Juan Evangelista [St. John the Evangelist]. Las familias por lo general incluyen padres que son dedicados trabajadores e hijos que son ciudadanos estadounidenses porque nacieron aquí. Para tales familias, las noticias del 8 de enero resultaron devastadoras.“El lunes por la mañana me despertó la llamada de una amiga que está aterrada de que la vayan a deportar”, dijo Lawton.Su amiga es una salvadoreño con TPS, cuyo marido es de Honduras y se enfrenta a sus propia incertidumbre porque el gobierno de Trump está liquidando el programa de Acción Diferida para Llegados en la Infancia (o DACA por su sigla en inglés), que le ha permitido permanecer en EE.UU. Sus dos hijos son ciudadanos estadounidenses.La Iglesia Episcopal suele abogar por el mantenimiento del TPS, particularmente cuando obligar a algunas personas a regresar a sus países de origen podría romper familias, constituir amenazas a la seguridad personal o ambas cosas. La Convención General aprobó una resolución en 2015 en que se comprometía a apoyar el Estatus de Protección Temporal “para todos los inmigrantes que huyen de la violencia, los desastres medioambientales, la devastación económica o el abuso cultural u otras formas de abuso”.La Oficina de Relaciones Gubernamentales de la Iglesia ha expresado su preocupación sobre el cambio de política hacia los salvadoreños.“Múltiples estudios han demostrado que El Salvador no puede repatriar con seguridad a casi 200.000 individuos”, dijo la Oficina de Relaciones Gubernamentales en una declaración el 9 de enero. “El Salvador está considerado como el país más violento del Hemisferio Occidental y ha sufrido continuos desastres naturales, estancamiento del desarrollo económico y carencia de infraestructura y de sistemas sanitarios. Además, la mayoría de los salvadoreños acogidos al TPS contribuyen económica, cultural y socialmente a EE.UU.“El Congreso y la rama ejecutiva deben diseñar una solución a largo plazo, para salvadoreños y otros nacionales que actualmente tienen TPS, que reconozca tanto las duras condiciones del país como abordar humanamente las realidades de los individuos afectados”.El Departamento de Seguridad Nacional, al anunciar la decisión de terminar el TPS para los salvadoreños, dijo que compete al Congreso decidir si les concede protección a largo plazo a esas personas afectadas. [La agencia] justificó el fin de las protecciones temporales citando el éxito de los empeños de recuperación después del terremoto.“Basándose en cuidadosa consideración de la información disponible…el Secretario determinó que las condiciones originales causadas por los terremotos de 2001 ya no existen”, decía la Seguridad Nacional en su declaración del 8 de enero.Pero el propio Departamento de Estado del presidente Donald Trump ha reconocido los peligros de la vida en El Salvador. En una advertencia de viaje emitida en febrero de 2017, el Departamento de Estado aconsejaba a los ciudadanos de EE.UU. “a considerar cuidadosamente los riesgos de viajar a El Salvador debido a los altos índices de delito y violencia”. [Este aviso] hacía notar que la tasa de homicidios del país está entre las más altas del mundo y que la actividad pandilleril se encuentra “generalizada”.El gobierno de Trump anunció anteriormente que terminaba el Estatus de Protección Temporal para ciudadanos de Sudán y Nicaragua, además de Haití. Por ahora, sigue en vigor para ciudadanos de Honduras, Nepal, Somalia, Sudán del Sur, Siria y Yemen, aunque el gobierno debe revisar cada designación en el transcurso del próximo año para determinar si extiende o cancela esas protecciones también. La decisión sobre los sirios deberá tomarse más adelante este mes.Los obispos anglicanos de América Central han programado una reunión este mes para discutir el impacto de la migración y la repatriación en la región, incluidos como un resultado de cambios en la política estadounidense. Los obispos se proponen, en parte, responder a “la falta de preparación para enfrentar los efectos sociales de las políticas migratorias del gobierno de Estados Unidos”, dijo la Iglesia Anglicana de México .Agrupaciones y denominaciones cristianas se han unido a la Iglesia Episcopal en objetar la eliminación del TPS. Un representante de la Conferencia de Obispos Católicos de EE.UU. emitió una declaración en la que califica de “desoladora” la decisión del gobierno de Trump. El Servicio Mundial de Iglesias también ha dado a conocer un comunicado en que denuncia la decisión.Cristosal, una organización de derechos humanos con raíces en las iglesias Episcopal y Anglicana y que tiene su sede en El Salvador, publicó una declaración en la que advertía que el fin del TPS causará “innecesario sufrimiento humano” no sólo a los salvadoreños a quienes se les ordene regresar a su país natal, sino también a sus aproximadamente 190.000 hijos nacidos en EE.UU. y a “las muchas comunidades estadounidenses que dependen de las contribuciones económicas, culturales y sociales de los migrantes y se benefician de las mismas”.Elmer Romero, un episcopal de Houston que es miembro de la junta de Cristosal, asistió a una reunión sobre el TPS que celebró esta semana el grupo de apoyo Crecen. A los 60 a 80 salvadoreños que asistieron  les preguntaron cuántos planeaban regresar voluntariamente a El Salvador. “Nadie levantó la mano”, dijo Romero a Episcopal News Service.“No existe ningún tipo de desarrollo económico para crear oportunidades, especialmente para la población joven”, dijo Romero de El Salvador, y la violencia relacionada con los cárteles de la droga es un peligro siempre presente.Él también impugnó la afirmación del gobierno de Trump de que el país, fuera de la capital, se ha recuperado de los estragos del terremoto. “Si uno profundiza en la sociedad, hay aún familias que básicamente lo perdieron todo y que siguen enfrentando muchísimas dificultades”.Romero, un salvadoreño-americano que se mudó a Estados Unidos en 2000, antes del terremoto, trabaja como director de un programa del Centro Houston para la Alfabetización y se ha dedicado durante los últimos 17 años a ayudar a inmigrantes y refugiados a encontrar servicios en este país. Su esposa es sacerdote episcopal.A él no le sorprendió la decisión del gobierno de Trump esta semana, y llamó un éxito que a los salvadoreños les dieran 18 meses antes de que caduque el TPS. Él espera que los activistas puedan persuadir al Congreso de que apruebe una ley que le otorgue protección permanente a los residentes a los cuales él atiende. Hasta entonces, dijo, ellos enfrentan un futuro incierto, y algunos ya están contemplando  arreglos que les permitan a sus hijos quedarse en Estados Unidos.Otras disposiciones semejantes se debaten en el área [metropolitana] de San Francisco, según Lawton, que trabaja como coordinadora de programa en el Centro para la Investigación Laboral y la Educación de la Universidad de California-Berkeley.Lawton dijo que su iglesia, la Diócesis de California y otras [instituciones] que abogan por las comunidades inmigrantes están ayudando a conectar a los salvadoreños con representantes legales para combatir la deportación y movilizarse a favor de soluciones legislativas en la capital del estado y en Washington, D.C.“Somos una diócesis santuario. Somos una parroquia santuario. Estamos haciendo todo lo que podemos para garantizar el debido proceso a las personas que se someten a él”, dijo Lawton. “Alzaremos juntos nuestras voces”.– David Paulsen es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service.
