Cardinal Tobin to Address Church’s Support for Immigrants

Posted on May 16, 2017 in DeSales Blog, Press Room

Joseph William Cardinal Tobin, Archbishop of Newark, will address the Church’s support for immigrants in his keynote address at the DeSales Media Group’s World Communications Day Catholic Media Conference on Wednesday.

Cardinal Tobin, a champion of immigrant rights, made news recently when he accompanied a 59-year-old grandfather facing deportation to federal court.

“A person unbound by Christian charity would say that you really have to believe in inflicting cruelty on innocent people to choose to support the policies [on immigration] we’ve seen in recent months while possessing the power to change the law,” Cardinal Tobin said.

A live stream from the conference will begin at WCDnyc.org at 10:45am. Read the complete press release from the Diocese of Brooklyn here.
