Archbishop 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
