Immigration Bills Hotly Debated on Capitol Hill: What Does the Church Teach?
Description: The immigration debate is shifting to the Republican-led House, where lawmakers have shown little appetite for the large-scale, comprehensive approach their Senate colleagues embraced last week. Most House Republicans insist that any attempt at comprehensive immigration legislation cannot offer a "special pathway to citizenship" before verifiable border security. Democrats have called that position a deal-breaker. We talk to Kevin Appleby, Director of the Office of Migration and Refugee Policy at the USCCB about what the Bishops have laid out as principles in this debate.
