Chicago priest crosses border illegally to highlight immigration reform

A Catholic priest from Chicago’s Southwest side crossed the border from Mexico into the United States illegally to call for immigration reform.

Father Gary Graf from Saint Gall Church did the border crossing in Nogales, Arizona recently, by hopping a fence.

He then turned himself into federal agents, and asked for forgiveness.

He returned to Chicago Saturday night and celebrated mass Sunday morning.

Father Graf hopes the crossing sparks authentic dialogue on immigration laws.
