Catholic College Presidents Call for Immigration Reform with a Path to Citizenship
The following letter was sent July 18 as the House of Representatives began debate on immigration reform. More than 90 Catholic university presidents, including three Lasallian institutions, La Salle University, Manhattan College in New York and St. Mary’s University of Minnesota, as well as dozens of academics, joined together in sending the letter to every Catholic member of the House of Representatives.
As educators, the universities stand with the U.S. Conference of Bishops in urging Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform policy that includes earned citizenship. As the letter states “Catholic teaching values the human dignity and worth of all immigrants, regardless of legal status…no human being made in the image of God is illegal.”
