Justice for Immigrants

In 2004, the Catholic bishops of the United States committed to immigration reform as a priority of the U.S. Catholic Church, and to creating a culture of encounter in which all migrants are treated with respect and dignity. A diverse group of Catholic organizations with national networks joined the USCCB’s¬†Justice for Immigrants Campaign (JFI) to unite and mobilize Catholic institutions, individuals, and persons of goodwill in support of immigration reform.
