As a member of Good Shepherd Catholic Community’s Social Justice Committee, I thank Mike Norman for urging the U.S. House of Representatives to reform our unjust immigration policy without delay (See: “Bishops take a stern tone on immigration,” Nov. 7). The U.S. Catholic Bishops support comprehensive immigration reform, including border security. Pope Francis and many other religious and business leaders support such reforms.

What’s the rush?

• The issue has existed for over a century;

• Each day, it affects the human dignity of over 11 million of God’s immigrant children, and

• We willingly use their goods and services each day, without concern for their well being.

Texans believe in justice, being good neighbors, and action.

We ask all Texans to go to the U.S. Bishops website on immigration ( and support our religious leaders.

What is keeping you from being a good neighbor to our immigrants?

Act for justice and fairness.

— Robert J. Torres, Colleyville
