The emotional issue of immigration reform may have stalled in the U.S. Congress, but the chairman of the U.S. bishops’ migration committee, speaking to a group in his home Diocese of Salt Lake City, believes lawmakers are destined to deal with the topic sooner rather than later.
The Intermountain Catholic, newspaper of the Diocese of Salt Lake City, covered the talk by Bishop John C. Wester. In its story, headlined “Understanding will come from immigrants’ stories,” the paper provides coverage of the bishop discussing some of the myths about illegal immigrants.
Bishop Wester also talked about the need for reform and about the courage lawmakers will have to muster to tackle such a politically unpopular issue.
