CWN Editor's Note: “We urge the Administration to reverse this policy, which needlessly increases the suffering of the most vulnerable and violates international protocols,” said Bishop Joe SVásquez, of Austin, chairman of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Migration, and Sean Callahan, president and CEO of Catholic Relief Services. “We steadfastly affirm a person’s right to seek asylum and find recent efforts to curtail and deter that right deeply troubling.”

    'Our gov't must provide more funding...' We're 22 trillion in the hole now, why not borrow a few million more for refugees. Yup, makes perfect sense to me.
