Catholic leaders push immigration as pro-life issue


A statement challenging pro-life Catholic members of the House of Representatives to view immigration reform as a pro-life issue was released Tuesday.

"As Catholics committed to building a culture of life, we write to urge our fellow Catholics in Congress to support the U.S. bishops' effort to pass comprehensive immigration reform," the statement reads. "Our nation's inhumane and flawed immigration policies leave migrant women, children and families abandoned by the side of the road."
