God gave us this earth for all to share. By criminalizing people who are trying to make a better life for themselves the United States is saying it is above God’s laws.
I totally agree with the U.S. bishops about this issue. I think what’s more important is that people receive basic human services and find employment to support their family rather than having all the right papers to say they can be within our political boundaries.
A deeper understanding of Catholic social teaching will help people see this point of view put out by the bishops.
Saying that they should be documented and legal and all that puts U.S. citizenship greater than being a child of God.
I don’t know about you, but I’m Catholic first, American only by birth.
