Catholic Church Launches New Campaign for Immigrants

Univision Online, Posted: Jan 06, 2009

MIAMI With masses, prayers, lectures and discussions in churches across the country, the U.S. Catholic Church on Sunday launched a new campaign in support of immigration reform that includes a path to legalization, reports Univision. The initiative will culminate on June 10 with a request to the president-elect, Barack Obama, to encourage Congress to take up the issue this year. The Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is also calling on the government to treat immigrants in the United States more humanely. Undocumented immigrants, they say, are one of the most vulnerable groups in American society.
