As it has done for over 100 years, Catholic Charities will continue to stand in solidarity with refugees, immigrants and their families. We will work diligently for responsible and comprehensive immigration reform. Certainly, concerns about safety must be addressed, but not through measures that do more harm than good.
Our Catholic heritage calls us to seek justice for newcomers. Our history as a faith community in the United States has been as an immigrant Church in an immigrant nation. We are singularly focused on serving the needs of poor and vulnerable individuals and families, providing compassionate care that respects the dignity of each person, as mandated by the gospel.
