Mexican Bishops Conference to review of Bush immigration proposal

.- Reacting to the announcement of new immigration policy for the United States by President George Bush, Bishop José Guadalupe Martín Rábago, President of the Mexican Bishops Conference, said the proposal “needs to be reviewed.”

The Mexican bishop said, “Although I need to think about it a little bit more, the only thing I can say is that the reform presented by President Bush needs to be reviewed in order to be sure it truly responds to the interests of Mexicans.”

“I think that at this time, in general, Mexicans are analyzing the idea to see just what the real impact will be.  As far as I’m concerned it would be premature to make any judgments before having the chance to review it closely and study it to see what the pros and cons are,” he added.

“As a nation that values immigration and depends on immigration we should have immigration laws that work and that make us proud.  We still do not have them.”
