The Catholic Democrats of Nebraska believe in the Holy Gospel's mandate to love our neighbor and welcome strangers and to care for and stand with immigrants, both documented and undocumented. While affirming the right and responsibility of sovereign nations to control their borders and to ensure the security of their citizens, especially in the wake of September 11, we seek basic protections for our immigrants, including due process rights, access to basic public benefits, and fair naturalization and legalization opportunities. We think it is important to ensure that safe and fair working conditions are being provided to all laboring people regardless of their immigration status. We oppose efforts to stem migration that do not effectively address its root causes and permit the continuation of the political, social, and economic inequities that contribute to it.
