Commonsense Immigration Reform

Our Catholic faith grounds us in the realization that each person has inherent dignity because he or she is created in the image and likeness of God. As children of God, we are treasured and valuable as we are. Throughout the Gospel, there are countless references that we must ‘welcome the stranger’ and care for them as ourselves. Because of this, all our national policies, including our immigration policies, should respect and protect the dignity of each person. 

Issues

NETWORK’s issue agenda for the 113th Congress is focused on the issue areas below.

In line with our mission as a Catholic leader in the global movement for justice and peace, NETWORK’s position on each of these issue areas is informed by the principles of Catholic Social Teaching and the lived experience of real people. We especially focus on people struggling at the economic margins and see poverty alleviation as an integral part of our mission.
