USCCB initiative issues action alert on immigration
January 11, 2017
Justice for Immigrants, an initiative of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, has urged Catholics to contact their representatives and senators, asking them to “support humane reforms that affirm the dignity of all migrants” and to recognize the contributions of local immigrants and refugees.
“As a Catholic, I believe in the human dignity of all immigrants and refugees,” states the suggested language of the electronic postcard to members of Congress. “With more than 65 million people displaced from their homes, we are currently witnessing the worst refugee crisis since World War Two.”

The USCCB "political action committee" is at it again! Immigration is a civil responsibility, and the bishops need to butt out except in extreme cases. Calling for political action on the treatment of "all immigrants and refugees" is extreme and contrary to Church teaching.
