Bishops, evangelical leaders meet with House GOP on immigration
Catholic World News - March 14, 2014
Four bishops, joined by two evangelical leaders, met with three leading House Republicans to urge them to hold a vote on immigration legislation, according to an Associated Press report.
The Senate passed the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act by a 68-32 margin in June, but the legislation has stalled in the House.

Amnesty II, really? Sounds like the bishops, who apparently have enough money to fly around the world, should go southward and talk with the Latin American bishops. The first Amnesty was supposed to be the cure-all of cure-alls regarding illegal immigration. Enough is enough.
