Attention Politicians: Letter from U.S. Hispanic Bishops

"We the undersigned Hispanic/Latino Bishops of the United States wish to let those of you who lack proper authorization to live and work in our country know that you are not alone, or forgotten. . . . We open our arms and hearts to you, and we receive you as members of our Catholic family.  As pastors we direct these words to you from the depths of our heart."  Read the full text of the Bishops' letters in English or Spanish here.
