Church 'enlightened on immigration'

The Catholic Church 'is one of the few mainstream institutions standing up for immigrants' according to Matthew Partridge at Guardian's Comment is Free.

After listing examples of the Church standing courageously against anti-immigrant opinion and polices across the world, he concludes:
"...while many of the church's critics attack it for being out of touch with modern values, its decision to choose principles over popularity has put it at the forefront of the immigration debate."
