Chicago Archbishop: Immigration Reform Is God’s Agenda

‘The aspirations that people have for a better life for their children ... those aspirations were placed in their heart by God’

O’DONNELL: "You said the work of the comprehensive immigration reform is not important because it is on my agenda but because it is on the God's. What does that mean? God wants immigration reform?"

CUPICH: "It means that the aspirations that people have for a better life with their children to which they are reaching out in hope as many people who have come to this country have, those aspirations were placed in their heart by God. We have to attend to that. This is not just something that they are wanting on their own, but God has always called us to a better life, has always called us to experiencing how we can provide for our families in a better way. And I think that being a grandson of immigrants, I feel that very deeply."
