Statement of Cardinal Cupich on the Executive Order on Refugees and Migrants

“The world is watching as we abandon our commitments to American values. These actions give aid and comfort to those who would destroy our way of life. They lower our estimation in the eyes of the many peoples who want to know America as a defender of human rights and religious liberty, not a nation that targets religious populations and then shuts its doors on them.”
– Cardinal Blase J. Cupich
