Korean bishop urges acceptance of illegal immigrants' children

February 28, 2012

Bishop Lazarus You Heung-sik, the president of the Korean Catholic bishops’ commission for migrants, has issued a call for acceptance of immigrants living the Asian country, and especially for acceptance of children born to illegal immigrants.

The children of illegal residents “are God’s children and a valuable resource for Korea,” the bishop argued. South Korea has seen a rising flow of immigrants from other Asia countries, notably China, Vietnam, and the Philippines.
