Hats off to the group Faith in Public Life, which has done a great job getting Catholic colleges and universities to work together to push for comprehensive immigration reform. This coordinated campaign is needed lest the issue get pushed to the back burner as Washington's budget negotiations dominate the news. If you are a Catholic student, see what your school is doing. If it isn't doing anything, ask why not? If you are a parent with a child in a Catholic school, ask what is being done. If you are an alumni or a donor, ask. Time to get this done.
