US Catholic Bishops: End Deportation Raids and Detention of Immigrant Mothers with Children
January 14th, 2016
Bishop Eusebio Elizondo, auxiliary bishop of Seattle and chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) Committee on Migration and Bishop Kevin Vann of Orange, California, chairman of Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc., (CLINIC) are calling on the Obama Administration to stop deportation raids and detention of immigrant mothers with children.
“We find such targeting of immigrant women and children – most of whom fled violence and persecution in their home countries – to be inhumane and a grave misuse of limited enforcement resources,” in a letter addressed to the Secretary of Homeland Security.
