SUPPORT IMMIGRATION REFORM The US Bishops, including Bishop Blaire, are asking Catholics to lend their voice to just and compassionate immigration reform proposals currently being debated in Congress. Based upon the Gospel and Catholic social teaching, the bishops support legislation that:
· Provides a path to citizenship for undocumented persons in the country;
· Preserves family unity as a cornerstone of our national immigration system;
· Provides legal paths for low-skilled immigrant workers to come and work in the United States;
· Restores due process protections to our immigration enforcement policies;
· Addresses the root causes (push factors) of migration, such as persecution and economic disparity.
You can go to the California Catholic Conference website http://capwiz.com/cacatholic/issues/alert/?alertid=62583626 or the parish Facebook page to send an email to your elected officials. The website also includes information about the various proposals and teachings of the Catholic Church.
