Immigration Study Group


Committed to education and action grounded in Catholic Social Teachings.

We search for truth about immigration issues and advocate for fair and just laws that promote family unity and human dignity.

Three Basic Principles of Catholic Social Teaching on Immigration

  • First Principle: People have the right to migrate to sustain their lives and the lives of their families.
  • Second Principle: A country has the right to regulate its borders and to control immigration.
  • Third Principle: A country must regulate its borders with justice and mercy.
