Reader: Catholic Church should push for better understanding of immigration

I would like to thank John Valenti for his Nov. 16 column in The Criterion.

I am familiar with much of the information he gave (although not the origin of the term “maquiladora”), which has been written about extensively in The New York Times. But I certainly will look at the bishops’ pastoral letter.

My wish is that the Church in the United States would become more active in pushing for a better understanding of the issues of immigration, and recognition that solving this problem should be considered a moral obligation.
