"What you did to the least of these, you did to me." Although Jesus said many things, His clearest concern was for the vulnerable. The vulnerable include our veterans, seniors, children and families.

President Obama Must Continue to Push for Congressional Action
Catholics United executive director Chris Korzen issued the following statement in response to President Obama's speech today calling for comprehensive immigration reform:
“For far too long, the American people have lived with a broken immigration system as leaders in Washington offer strong words and scant results. While we welcome President Obama's call for Congress to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill, his words must be matched with action. Tough, practical, and fair immigration reform will only succeed with the president's unrelenting leadership.”
“Comprehensive immigration reform means securing our borders, cracking down on illegal employers, and requiring illegal immigrants to pay taxes, learn English, and become law-abiding citizens. Absent an approach that achieves these objectives, our nation will continue to face an ever-growing crisis.”
“It's because of Washington's continued inaction that partisan interests have been able to use the immigration issue to score cheap political points without delivering results. Legislation such as Arizona's recently passed immigration law offers no real solutions and only serves those who profit from the politics of division. On behalf of our members – and those Catholics committed to social justice and the common good – we call for strong presidential leadership and swift action on immigration reform.”

Charity Should Come Before Politics
Do you believe Christ taught us to first serve the poor and marginalized, no matter their beliefs? If so, we agree.
