Catholic Church should address immigration issues Print
Letters to the editor

To the editor:

In reference to the article on Hispanic ministry (Catholic Herald,  July 29, 2010),  does the Church address the issue of legal citizenship? Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the Catholic Church could begin to solve the immigration controversy in the country by issuing some common sense policies to start the process of citizenship for these people? The majority of Americans merely want these people to be loyal to this country, not to Mexico.

I’m sorry if I’m being naive about this. We want to take care of these people spiritually.

Avoiding a discussion of the lawlessness of illegality does not seem honest to me.
