The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' annual spring assembly began with a statement condemning recent immigration policies from the Trump administration that have separated immigrant families at the U.S.-Mexico border. Cardinal Daniel DiNardo wrote, "Families are the foundational element of our society and they must be able to stay together. While protecting our borders is important, we can and must do better as a government, and as a society, to find other ways to ensure that safety. Separating babies from their mothers is not the answer and is immoral."
