Jesus, Virgin Mary caged and separated in controversial Nativity scene

Description

Los Angeles, Dec 9 (EFEUSA).- A Methodist church in Southern California has adapted its traditional Nativity scene this year by putting the Baby Jesus, the Virgin Mary and Joseph in separate cages to highlight the separation of families pushed by the Donald Trump administration to deter undocumented migrants from illegally entering the United States.The Nativity scene, at the United Methodist Church in Claremont, a town 51 km (32 mi.) east of Los Angeles, was set up on church grounds on the weekend to denounce the situation being faced by refugees who come to the US.The Christmas display has sparked controversy, with the caged figurines of Mary and Joseph placed on either side of the cage containing Jesus in the manger.
