The Catholic Church has always been a champion for and source of support to immigrants. We have been and are a Church of immigrants. Immigration reform must be comprehensive: respecting family unity, providing a path to full participation in our society, securing our borders in a humane way, and providing a fair legal immigration system. These values flow from the social teaching of the Church. It is the right and responsibility of Catholics to participate in the political process. As our nation debates immigration reform, now is a critical time to communicate with our elected officials – especially those of the U.S. House of Representatives – about our values and concerns.
