Undocumented immigrants and Muslims would seem to have little in common. But especially since September 11, 2001, both communities have increasingly shared a bitter common identity as scapegoats. How has this happened? And further: Why does scapegoating continue to blight the human family? In this presentation we’ll look at what the Christian and Muslim scriptures say about scapegoating. We’ll also hear from representatives of the communities, migrant and Muslim both, about their experiences with scapegoating. Lastly, we will engage in dialogue about positive ways we can help ourselves and others overcome the temptations and consequences of scapegoating by "crossing the walls that divide us."
