Catholic Charities Maine has worked to resettle more than 3,000 refugees over the past several years. But President Donald Trump has announced plans to restrict entry of refugees into America, and the state’s immigrant community is on edge.
Catholic Charities Maine chief executive officer Stephen Letourneau says the agency remains “100 percent committed” to working with refugees and “providing a complete continuum of services.”
Letourneau says Catholic Charities wants to continue partnering with the government to welcome refugees here. Catholic Charities is the agency that administers local resettlements in Maine.
