Los Angeles Archbishop Jose Gómez writes that immigration is the test of our generation . . .
Archbishop Gómez has written a personal, passionate and practical contribution to the immigration debate, calling for a recovery of America’s highest ideals. Subtitled Renewing the Soul of Our Nation, he writes that immigration is a human rights test of our generation and a defining historical moment for America.
The archbishop’s passion for the dignity of every person — particularly the migrant — comes through loud and clear. Unfortunately, he barely addresses pressing issues like border security; e-verify; the cynical and corrupt Mexican government; and most notably, the economic, political, and cultural impact of large-scale immigration. These issues would be fitting material for his next book on this subject.
