    Thanks to each of you for a rich conversation on this timely issue. Great job laying out the scriptural/theologial foundations, countering myths, and explaning the current state of affairs.

    Perhaps listeners may be interested to read the recent action taken by the the US Jesuit Provincials supporting the principles of comprehensive immigration reform called forth by the US Bishops. Press Release and their letter available at:

    Thanks for your call to be in solidarity with immigrants. John Sealey
