USCCB committee: pray, fast, advocate on behalf of immigration reform

Catholic World News - April 01, 2014

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Migration is asking Catholics to pray, fast, and advocate on behalf of immigration reform as several bishops, led by Cardinal Seán O’Malley of Boston, gather to offer Mass for those who have died attempting to cross the border between Mexico and the United States.

The Mass is taking place on April 1 at the border wall in Nogales, Arizona.

    Why this monomaniacal furor over immigration? Shouldn't the bishops be concentrating on catechizing the Catholics they already have? Or have they given up on them and decided to recruit a new crop? Shouldn't they be denouncing the structural injustice that is endemic south of the border and causes the economic stagnation that forces so many to leave their homes? Why is immigration, especially illegal immigration, the best solution for anyone?
