Fort Worth Catholic Charities on Halt to Refugee Resettlement

Catholic Diocese of Fort Worth Statement on Border Security

The Catholic Diocese of Fort Worth respects the responsibility of the federal government to secure our borders and ensure the safety of our citizens for the common good.

We urge federal officials to consider the real needs of immigrant families as they implement border security measures. We also remind federal officials, as well as all citizens of the United States, that we are a welcoming nation; our legitimate responsibility to provide safe borders does not justify hostility and animus against families of immigrants. As we read in Leviticus 19:33-34 "When an alien resides with you in your land, you shall not oppress the alien. The alien who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the alien as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God." Just and legal immigration is essential to the health and flourishing of our nation. As Catholics we will not close the door to our neighbor in need out of our fear and selfishness.
