IMMIGRATION: Pax Christi USA signs onto statement that immigration reform is a “pro-life” issue

Last week, Pax Christi USA signed onto a statement with 100 other Catholic leaders challenging “pro-life” Catholics in Congress to make immigration reform a “pro-life” issue.

Immigration rally“As the national Catholic peace with justice movement we urge our elected officials to defend the sanctity of human lives at all stages. We too recognize the image of God in the migrant at the border, in the prisoner on death row, in the pregnant woman and in the hungry child,” stated Pax Christi USA Executive Director Sr. Patty Chappell, SNDdeN. “It is time for all Congressional representatives to come together and vote for a comprehensive immigration reform bill.”
