    WASHINGTON, D.C. - United States Senator Susan Collins met with students from Cheverus High School in Washington yesterday. The students were visiting Washington to attend the Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice Conference.

      During their meeting in a Senate Committee room, the students discussed a range of topics with Senator Collins, including environmental concerns, immigration policy, and U.S. policy towards Central American nations.

      “I really enjoyed hearing and learning from each of these bright young students from Maine this morning.”  Senator Collins said.  “I was very impressed by their eloquent and articulate discussion of a wide range of complicated policy issues. I challenged each of them to think about all sides of these complex matters as they continue to learn from their dedicated teachers.”

      The Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice is an annual gathering for members of the Ignatian family, including Jesuit institutions and the larger church, to come together in the context of social justice and solidarity.
