Bishop calls for comprehensive immigration reform

If you’re a Catholic in the pew wondering why the church holds the position it does on immigration reform, this story in the Intermountain Catholic in Salt Lake City could be worth a look. The head of that diocese, Bishop John C. Wester, also is the current chairman of the U.S. bishops’ migration committee, and he urged in a recent local lecture that immigration issues should be looked at “through the lens of our Catholic perspective.” The paper also offers a video of the lecture for viewing online as well as the full text of the lecture in .pdf format.
