Immigration

 Reflection:  “Since its founding, the United States has received immigrants from around the world who have found opportunity and safe haven in a new land.  The labor, values,  and beliefs of immigrants from throughout the world have transformed the United States from a loose group of colonies into one of the leading democracies in the world today.”    (U.S. Catholic Bishops, “Strangers No Longer: together on the Journey of Hope” 2003, #17)

“The Church in America must be a vigilant advocate, defending against any unjust restriction the natural right of individual persons to move freely within their own nation and from one nation to another.  Attention must be called to the rights of migrants and their families and to respect for their human dignity, even in cases of non-legal immigration.”                                          (John Paul II, “Ecclesia in America,” 1999, #65)
