Migration and Refugee Services is charged with assisting the bishops in the development and promotion of migration policy positions within the context of the Church's social teaching. To this end MRS works with grassroots Catholic networks across the US to promote fair immigration and refugee policies, advocates for the passage of comprehensive immigration reform , engages in the fight against human trafficking , develops initiatives aimed at educating Catholics on the Church's teaching on migration, and assists the U.S. Catholic bishops in carrying the voice of the Church to Congress and the Administration.
One of the foundational documents that informs the work of the Church on migration related matters is found in the joint-pastoral letter, Strangers No Longer: Together on the Journey of Hope , which integrates Scriptural and social teaching into a cohesive vision that informs their advocacy efforts. While the Church relies on a well-developed, theoretical and moral framework to inform their policy perspective, MRS pursues advocacy efforts through a number of different concrete avenues. These include:
