Issue: Immigration 

SSJ Public Statement on Immigration

In full harmony with the Gospel proclamation “that all may be one” and the charisma of the sisters of St. Joseph to unite neighbor with neighbor and neighbor with God, we the Sisters of St. Joseph of Rochester, urge Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform.

  • We support immigrants in their wish to come to the United States and work.
  • We support suspension of the current emphasis on punitive action against undocumented workers and their families.
  • We support the right of laborers to receive a just wage and to be treated with dignity and respect
