In the Washington Post's "On Faith" blog, Los Angeles Archbishop Jose Gomez has an article on the Arizona immigration law, which comes before the Supreme Court today. In previous posts on immigration, several commentators have suggested that Catholics can, and should, support efforts like the one in Arizona to enforce our nation's broken immigration laws. Archbishop Gomez's article demonstrates why Catholics must oppose such laws. Additionally his treatment of the issue demonstrates not only a pastor's heart, it shows, as does his entire career, how immigration strengthens America. Archbishop Gomez, after all, was not born north of the border, but how blest we are that he crossed it.
