Catholic Bishops Denounce President’s Immigration Executive Orders
Several U.S. Catholic Bishops publically vocalized their disapproval and disappointment this week in President Trump’s new Executive Order restricting the flow of travelers and refugees into the United States for 90 to 120 days.
Archbishop José H. Gomez of the Diocese of Los Angeles released a statement lamenting the new policies.
“The first thing to say is that these executive orders seem like they were put together too fast. Not enough thought seems to have been given to their legality or to explaining their rationale or to considering the practical consequences for millions of people here and across the globe,” Gomez wrote.
