Immigration & Family Values

John Gehring and Kristin Heyer have an op-ed in the San  Jose Mercury-News that makes the point that those who are concerned about family values need to get on board comprehensive immigration reform. This is an argument that, for me, is the most compelling - it is certainly unChristian, and I believe un-American, to separate wives from their husbands, and parents from their children, because of differing legal status within a family. I hope Congressman Barletta and other anti-immigrant members of Congress who are also Catholic are getting an earful from their bishops.
