SPECIAL REPORT: Families Separated at the Border
President Donald Trump signed an executive order Wednesday, allowing immigrant families to remain together, a pivot after officials spent days defending the administration's zero tolerance policy.
After debate about the future of their voter guide the U.S. bishops opted to supplement rather than revise or issue a new document, resisting a push from a group of bishops who believed the current document is outdated.
The U.S. bishops began their annual spring assembly by condemning policies from the Trump administration that have separated families at the U.S.-Mexico border.
Many immigrants are Catholic, but many white Catholics voted for Trump and his anti-immigrant platform. And in the middle of the immigration crisis stand the American bishops.
