Federal Immigration Reform

The right to immigrate stems from a person’s inalienable right to security and a means to a livelihood, if it cannot be found in his or her country of origin. In turn, the welcoming country has a duty to secure its border and enforce the law for the sake of the common good, and all people must respect the legitimate exercise of this right. (CCC, 2241)

Hear Archbishop John Nienstedt talk about the urgent need to reform our nation’s immigration system.


We work with the USCCB’s Justice for Immigrants (JFI) to monitor and advocate for just immigration reform.
