Regarding the Executive Order Suspending Refugee Admissions Program
The Executive Order issued on Friday, January 27th, effectively shut down the admission of all refugees to the United States of America. As the violence and chaos continues in countries like Syria and Iraq, innocent citizens are fleeing to the safety of America. I believe that refugees from war can be welcomed to our country without compromising the safety and security of our nation. The Catholic Bishops of the United States will continue to engage government officials in finding a solution to this crisis that is humane and consistent with our values.
