Cardinal Roger Mahony is ramping up his advocacy for immigrants, with an address scheduled for Monday at Fordham University in New York called "Immigration Reform: A Moral Imperative," and a new website launched today by the archdiocese. On the site, Mahony personally interviews "our immigrant brothers and sisters, people like you and me." After hearing their human stories and seeing their faces, Mahony says, "the more we will understand the need to reform federal immigration laws to help bring these people along a path to legal recognition."
