Catholic Leaders in Connecticut Speak on Immigration Issue
07/15/2019 7:11pm

The hot button issue of illegal immigration has reached all the way to the Catholic Church, with bishops across the country, including in Connecticut, weighing in.They have left their countries, not because they want to, its because for some reason, they have been forced to, said Bishop Juan Miguel Betancourt, auxiliary bishop of Hartford. Florida Manatee Deaths Could Reach Record High Bentancourt says hes heard the concerns of Catholic parishioners, 40 percent of whom in the Hartford area he says are of Hispanic origin.If they have left everything in their countries, its not easy just to go back and start over in a place thats not safe, he explained. Weakened Barry Still Poses Flood, Tornado Risks Betancourt is one of five bishops in the Connecticut Catholic Conference who recently signed a letter urging the federal government to overhaul existing immigration policies.An examination of conscience is necessary to see all the things that have been done and the things that we have failed to do as a country, Betancourt said. Divers Swim, Take Pictures With Oversized Jellyfish He says their biggest concern is treatment of migrants at the border and the conditions in the countries they are fleeing from. However, obeying the law is also part of the Churchs teachings.Our government has the right and the duty to keep our borders safe.But, he says that human dignity needs to be at the forefront of those policy decisions.With the respect of the human person. Thats the thing. I think thats the first thing that we need to look. If we focus on that, that will help us to find ways that can be fair and just, Betancourt said.While other Christian denominations have opened their doors to those seeking sanctuary of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Betancourt says there is no written policy, yet, in the Hartford Archdiocese.We probably will be committed to do everything that is in our power with our resources to try to assist the people who are in need in a way that actually respects the law, he said.

Hot Work in Hot Weather: Firefighters Battle Through 90-Degree Heat
07/15/2019 5:56pm

As if fighting fires wasnt difficult enough, Middlefield firefighters faced an additional challenge Monday - outdoor temperatures approaching 90 degrees.Its extremely warm out today, said Middlefield Fire Lt. Brian Dumas. It could be more humid, make it more miserable but it would be good if it cooled down a little bit. Florida Manatee Deaths Could Reach Record High Middlefield Fire Chief Peter Tyc described the fire as moderate and says it was knocked down in just 15 minutes. Still, with the summers heat, the challenge was anything but small.The equipment we wear weighs over 80 pounds, explained Tyc. Even on the coldest day you get hot in your gear. Weakened Barry Still Poses Flood, Tornado Risks During summer months Middlefield firefighters say they need to rotate firefighters more frequently, keeping them fresh and hydrated.It means that we need more people, said Tyc. People that usually can do work for 15 or 20 minutes can only do five to 10 minutes of work. Divers Swim, Take Pictures With Oversized Jellyfish To assist with personnel, Middlefield received mutual aid from three nearby departments Durham, Killingworth and Westfield.Right now were doing the best with what we have, said Assistant Chief Steven Tyc. We might have guys going into the house two or three times instead of just going in once. Coming out, cooling off.Firefighters estimate the ceiling temperature inside the home today was close to 1000 degrees, so despite the outdoor temperatures, there was relief outside.Just coming out, obviously, even if its 100 degrees outside, its gonna feel a lot cooler than it was in there, added Steven Tyc.Although the Middlefield fire was confined to the kitchen, firefighters say the smoke damage inside the home has made it unlivable. The good news, no one was hurt.Middlefield firefighters arent the only ones dealing with this weeks heat. Firefighters around the state, including Middletown, are dealing with this challenge.It takes a beating on your body. says Middletown Deputy Fire Chief Albert Leary. Its an extra strain on the men and women of the fire department, we have to rotate more often and get larger crews in.Middletown Fire says they normally allow firefighters to stay in a structure until two oxygen bottles are depleted. In the hot summer days though, that time is limited and cut in half.They go in with a bottle. When that air pack is depleted they come out, said Lieutenant, Bob Quale.Staying hydrated is paramount. Middletown lieutenants mandate firefighters drink water as soon as their shift begins and continue throughout the day.Its extremely taxing on your body with the heat, said Lt. Keith Clark. Its a physical job to begin with but the heat just adds stress.With several days reaching 90 degrees already this week and more of the same to come, these firefighters are preparing the best they can.Fortunately for Middletown firefighters theres only been one small fire this week and theyre hoping it stays that way.Photo Credit: NBC Connecticut
