President Barack Obama’s recent action on immigration may indicate a move towards a better approach to immigration, a policy expert for the U.S. bishops’ conference says.
"They have real protection claims which should be heard. Without legal assistance, the likelihood of them receiving relief goes down dramatically," said Kevin Appleby, director of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' office of migration policy and public affairs.
Appleby said he hoped that the president would examine the U.S. government’s detention policy.
