Three Cheers for Bp Wester & USCCB

As reported on our homepage, Bishop John Wester, head of the USCCB Committee on Migration, has praised the Obama Administration for its decision to implement a new plicy regarding the detention of undocumented workers. The new policy will help those undocumented workers who have not committed crimes to avoid automatic deportation and will help keep families together.
The USCCB has been forthright in voicing its objections to policies that it oppposes. It is nice to see them applauding a decision that warrants applause.
