Jesuits On Immigration Politics

The Jesuits are asking for legislation based on five core principals shared by the USCCB's Justice for Immigrants Campaign.

1. A path to legalization that ensures undocumented immigrants have access to full rights.
2. A legal employment structure for future workers that protects both migrants and United States workers.
3. Expedited family reunification and emphasis on family unity.
4. The need for due process and humane enforcement of our immigration laws.
5. Economic development assistance and fair market access for developing countries.

They sound like Republicans for a change.

Why "Republican"? This doesn't anything like the recommendations coming from GOP lawmakers or media types.

Where is the Jesuit statement against same-s@x marriage and unions? When did the Jesuits lobby elected officials on those matters? Oh, that's right: the Jesuits only advocate for leftist ideas. They stopped being Catholic at least two decades ago.
