Immigration and the Next America

Renewing the Soul of Our Nation

Archbishop José GomezArchbishop José Gomez has written a personal, passionate and practical contribution to the national debate about immigration - pointing the way toward a recovery of America's highest ideals.

"Immigration is a human rights test of our generation. It's also a defining historical moment for America. The meaning of this hour is that we need to renew our country in the image of her founding promises of universal rights rooted in God. Immigration is about more than immigration. It's about renewing the soul of America."

—Archbishop José H. Gomez

Read Our Sunday Visitor’s exclusive interview with Archbishop José H. Gomez

"Immigration is about more than immigration. It always has been. The question of immigration is a question about America. About our national identity and destiny. What is America? What does it mean to be an American? Who are we as a people and where are we heading as a country? What will the 'next America' look like? What should the next America look like?"
