Immigration and the Catholic Church

Immigration and the Catholic Church

The Catholic Church in the United States has been closely involved on issues related to immigration for over two hundred years.

Who We Are

Migration and Refugee Services (MRS) is charged with assisting the bishops in the development and promotion of migration policy positions within the context of the Church's social teaching. To this end, MRS works with Catholic across the country and organizational partners to promote fair immigration and refugee policies, advocates for the passage of immigration reform, engages in the fight against human trafficking, develops initiatives aimed at educating Catholics on the Church's teaching on migration, and assists the U.S. Catholic bishops in carrying the voice of the Church to Congress and the Administration.

What We Do

Relying on a well-developed theoretical and moral framework, MRS pursues advocacy efforts through a number of avenues. These include:

  • The development and distribution of policy position papers and resources that highlight areas of importance to the bishops that are deserving of further attention;
  • The planning and carrying out of fact finding trips to regions of the world that are experiencing political and social upheaval and under threat of or undergoing a refugee or other migration related crisis. In recent years the bishops have taken trips to the Middle East, East Africa, Central America and Haiti, and have published reports that provide policy proposals to address problems that they found;
  • Public statements on a range of issues related to migration and the provision of congressional testimony urging Congress to pass humane legislation that will provide needed protections to migrant populations;
  • Implementation of a wide range of national educational initiatives, including National Migration Week, that seek to change hearts and minds and challenges Catholics and other people of good will to embrace the Church's vision on migration;
  • Involvement in a wide range of coalitions that work to realize protection-focused legislation that provides dignity for the most vulnerable among us: migrant children, undocumented immigrants, and victims of human trafficking.
