• Immigration Reform: The catholic Bishops and Church support human immigration reform. We must reform our broken system that separates family and impedes due process.
• Immigration Detention: Immigrant detention is a growing industry in this country, with Congress allocating as much as $2 billion a year to maintain and expand it. Due to mandatory detention laws people who are not flight risks or risks to national security are extremely vulnerable, such as asylum seekers, families and victims of human trafficking, are being held unnecessarily in detention.
• Human Trafficking: Human trafficking is defined as the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining a person for labor or services through the use of force, fraud, or coercion, for the purpose subjecting that person to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery. The Catholic church objects to this practice as an affront to human dignity.
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' Justice for Immigrants campaign is currently working on behalf of the Bishops to promote human migration policy towards refugees and immigrants that reflects our Catholic values.
