Catholic Herald: Bishop asks Congress to reject Trump’s immigration bill

Catholic Herald: Bishop asks Congress to reject Trump’s immigration bill

Calling a proposed piece of legislation “discriminatory,” the head of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Migration called on the president and Congress to reject a bill that seeks to drastically cut legal immigration levels over a decade, and which also would greatly limit the ability of citizens and legal residents to bring family into the US.

“Had this discriminatory legislation been in place generations ago, many of the very people who built and defended this nation would have been excluded,” said Bishop Joe Vasquez of Austin, Texas, chair of the bishops’ migration committee.
