WA State Bishops on Immigration Reform

The Washington State Catholic Conference, which represents the archdiocese of Seattle and the dioceses of Spokane and Yakima, has issued a pastoral statement on immigration reform to be included in all church bulletins. It is short, concise and powerful. Most importantly, in what we might call the mode of Papa Francesco, it starts with stories of real human beings. Let's hope other bishops throughout the country are issuing similar statements to their flocks.
