CWN Editor's Note: A spokesman for the US Conference of Catholic Bishops has protested the executive order signed by President Joe Biden on June 4, which the White House said would reduce illegal border crossings by migrants seeking asylum.

Bishop Mark Seitz of El Paso, who chairs the USCCB committee on migration, said that the group is “deeply disturbed by this disregard for fundamental human protections and US asylum law.”

While acknowledging the government’s duty to control border traffic, Bishop Seitz said: “Nevertheless, as defenders of human life and dignity, which we hold sacred and inviolable from the moment of conception, we cannot accept unjust conditions on the right to migrate for those fleeing life-threatening situations.”
