The United States of America is a nation of immigrants; throughout history, people have left their homelands for a wide variety of reasons -- religious, economic, political -- to resettle here. Today is no different. In the early twentieth century, as much as 15% of the U.S. population was foreign-born. Even today, the U.S. Census Bureau tells us, our foreign-born population stands at 11.5%. Most citizens of the United States have an immigrant relative in the not-too-distant past.
In this pamphlet, the Most Rev. Thomas Wenski, Bishop of the Diocese of Orlando, answers questions often raised by Catholics concerning Catholic social teaching and the issue of immigration.
