Bishop Vasquez: Trump moves will 'tear families apart,' harm communities

 | 

Bishop Joe S. Vasquez of Austin, Texas, the chairman of the U.S. bishops' Committee on Migration, criticized President Donald Trump's executive memorandum to construct a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, saying it would "put immigrant lives needlessly in harm's way." Vasquez also criticized Trump's memorandum on a surge in immigrant detention and deportation forces, saying it would "tear families apart and spark fear and panic in communities."

Trump executive order reinstates 'Mexico City Policy' on abortion

 | 

President Donald J. Trump issued an executive order Jan. 23 reinstating the "Mexico City Policy," which bans all foreign nongovernmental organizations receiving U.S. funds from performing or promoting abortion as a method of family planning in other countries.

The action was hailed by pro-life leaders.

"President Trump is continuing Ronald Reagan's legacy by taking immediate action on day one to stop the promotion of abortion through our tax dollars overseas." said a Jan. 23 statement from Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List.
