More from Sheriff Curran


In this short video, Sheriff Mark Curran, whose essay at Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good I link to earlier today, urges Congress to do its job and pass an immigration reform bill. Sheriff Curran's prominence in this campaign reflects the hard work of Cardinal Francis George who has been reaching out to business and law enforcement leaders in Illinois to garner support for immigration reform. Kudos to both the sheriff and the cardinal. 

Immigration & Law Enforcement


Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good ran an article this week in their Common Good Forum from Sheriff Mark Curran, who makes the case that immigration reform is essential to building the trust law enforcement officials need with the communities they protect. This had not occurred to me but the point is compelling and appears quite obvious the moment it is raised. Kudos to the sheriff.
