The time for immigration reform has come, U.S. and Mexican Catholic workers assembled in El Paso said as the groundbreaking Binational Migration Conference opened Thursday...We already welcome almost a million strangers a year via legal immigration. I'm sure there's something in the Bible about defense against invasion. And, I'm sure there's something in there about personal responsibility and the requirements of governments to look after their own people rather than trying to take advantage of other countries.
"The simple truth is clear: We must welcome the stranger, for in his or her face we see Christ," [Cardinal Theodore McCarrick of Washington, D.C.] said. "Sadly, the migration experience today, according to the bishops of both countries, is far from the Kingdom of God that Jesus proclaimed."
