· New appeal at the Plenary of the US Bishops ·
Following the Presidential election, the Bishops of the United States of America are once again calling on the government to reach a final agreement for the approval of the new law concerning immigration. This is one of the central themes — together with that of safeguarding life and marriage — of the Plenary Assembly which finishes today in Baltimore. The appeal is part of a declaration signed by Archbishop José Horacio Gómez of Los Angeles, who presides over the committee on immigration of the episcopate. "I urge the President and Congress to seize the moment and begin the challenging process of fashioning a bipartisan agreement," he said. Millions of people continue to live in the shadows without legal protection and marginalized from society.
