Church’s immigration-themed nativity scene features baby Jesus in a cage

A Massachusetts church’s immigration-themed nativity scene is causing controversy due to it depicting baby Jesus inside a cage. The nativity scene at St. Susanna Parish is aiming to shine a light on the topic of immigration, according to local news reports. 

Over the weekend the nativity scene was set up, showing baby Jesus inside a black cage and the three wise men separated by a fence with a sign that reads, “deportation.”

The church hopes the display will spark conversations about how immigrants are being treated at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Last year the same church also put up a controversial nativity display. That display featured signs about Mary, Joseph, and baby Jesus that read the location and death count of recent U.S. mass-shootings.
