U.S. Jesuits Join Catholic Bishops in Welcoming Obama Administration’s Plan to Provide Immigration Relief

WASHINGTON D.C. - In a statement released on November 21, 2014, the U.S. Jesuit Conference, Jesuit Refugee Service USA and Kino Border Initiative, joined the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops in welcoming President Obama’s announcement of temporary relief from deportation for as many as five million of our community members. The statement follows the U.S. Bishops' statement released the previous day which emphasized the importance of keeping families together in the Obama administration's executive action.
