Catholic Leaders and Changes in Immigration Policy

On September 8, a coordinated message about immigration reform will be delivered in  many Catholic parishes across the nation.  Kevin Appleby, director of migration policy at the USCCB, is quoted in this article from the New York Times, indicating that the Catholic bishops will push for passage of a legislative overhaul that includes a path to citizenship.

Additionally, Bishop Joseph Bambera of Scranton, PA recently issued this letter on immigration reform.  Readers in the Scranton Diocese will be able to link from Bishop Bambera's letter to their elected officials in Washington to send a message about immigration reform. 

Remember, too, that the Interfaith Immigration Coalition urges us to participate in 40 days of "Fast Action" for immigration reform.  Click here for more information.
