Statements on Immigration

In light of recent debate in Congress and efforts by the USCCB and Catholic Relief Services to raise awareness to the DACA measure, I am posting two statements regarding immigration which I issued previously.  In disseminating them once again, I am fully reiterating my pastoral call for Congress to address the DACA program and to enact a comprehensive solution that respects all individuals affected by immigration laws and policies.

Let us pray for all of those responsible for formulating and enforcing our laws.  May the intercession of Saint Francis Xavier Cabrini, patroness of immigrants, guide immigrant families, policymakers and each of us.
