Drawing on my recent experiences on the border of Syria and Lebanon, I challenged his suggestion that Mike Pence’s position of rejecting Syrian was well within the Catholic moral framework.

Let’s set the record straight: that’s absolute malarkey.

Syrian refugees aren’t pawns on the chessboard of humanity. They’re children, women, and men who are victims of violence and war. We are called by God to listen to their stories, to share in their joys and anxieties, and to welcome them into our communities.
