"There is a dictate of nature more imperious and more ancient than any bargain between man and man, that the remuneration must be enough to support the wage-earner in reasonable and frugal comfort. If through necessity or fear of a worse evil, the workingman accepts harder conditions because an employer or contractor will give him no better, he is the victim of force and injustice."

-Leo XIII, Rerum Novarum, # 45

 

+Gomez's "Immigration and the Next America"

 | 

Archbishop Jose Gomez has published a small volume with our friends at Our Sunday Visitor entitled, “Immigration and the Next America: Renewing the Soul of Our Nation.” The book is timely as the debate on immigration moves from the Senate to the House. Indeed, later today, Speaker John Boehner, will convoke a meeting of the House GOP caucus to discuss the issue. I hope Boehner and his fellow Catholic members will read this book by Archbishop Gomez as it could usefully inform their discussion.
