February 07, 2024
CWN Editor's Note: Bishop Mark Seitz of El Paso, the chairman of the US bishops’ Committee on Migration, criticized provisions of a bipartisan Senate immigration measure that would impose tougher asylum laws.
Bishop Seitz, “while taking no position on the overall measure,” wrote that “several changes proposed in this bill would unjustly undermine due process and pave the way for avoidable and potentially life-threatening harm to be inflicted on vulnerable persons seeking humanitarian protection in the United States.”
“As shepherds committed to defending the sanctity of human life and upholding the God-given dignity of all, we implore you to reject those changes,” he added in his letter to Senate leaders.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
