Michigan Catholic bishops urge immigrant support

LANSING, August 3, 2011 (AP): Michigan's seven Catholic bishops are calling for more support for immigrants here without documentation in a statement being sent to Catholics across the state and elected officials.

The statement issued Wednesday says it's ``unfair and mistaken'' to blame such immigrants for problems more accurately attributed to what it calls ``a failed federal policy.''

The bishops want Michigan lawmakers to reject state legislation that would compromise the dignity of immigrants or tear apart families. They're also urging the state's congressional delegation to pass federal bills offering a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants.

The policy statement was sent out by Detroit Archbishop Allen Vigneron and bishops Bernard Hebda of Gaylord, Walter Hurley of Grand Rapids, Paul Bradley of Kalamazoo, Earl Boyea of Lansing, Alexander Sample of Marquette and Joseph Cistone of Saginaw.
