Archbishop rues rhetoric of immigration debate

Archbishop Robert Carlson has issued a pastoral statement on immigration and mercy.
“As I listen to our national discourse on immigration, I am becoming increasingly concerned about the language and rhetoric of discrimination, hate and alienation,” he said. “In my visits and conversations with our Hispanic sisters and brothers, in particular, I have heard how difficult, painful and divisive this rhetoric of hate has been, and how it is creating an atmosphere of anxiety, withdrawal and fear.”
The prelate concluded by calling upon the faithful “to join me in expressing our solidarity and hope. Our mission as one Pilgrim Church is to serve in the manner of Christ, and to follow closely in the footsteps of our Lord and Savior.”
