Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio - Put Out Into the Deep

We Need to Speak for Migrants

My dear brothers and sisters in the Lord,

Recently, Bishop Joe S. Vásquez, of the Diocese of Austin, Texas, and chairman of the USCCB’s Committee on Migration, of which I am a member, sent a letter to all of the Senators of the U.S., which perfectly sums up, I believe, the position of the Church on immigration matters. One particular section is worth sharing with you.
