PODCAST – Cardinal Tobin Discusses Catholic Teaching on Migrants and Refugees

The Center for Migration Studies presents this Podcast with His Eminence Joseph Cardinal Tobin, Archbishop of Newark, New Jersey.  Cardinal Tobin is well-known for his support of migrants and refugees – accompanying immigrants to deportation hearings and speaking out against unjust immigration policies. In 2015, as Archbishop of Indianapolis, he directed Catholic Charities of Indianapolis to resettle a Syrian refugee family in the Archdiocese, against the wishes of former Indiana governor, and now Vice-President, Mike Pence.

In this interview with the Center’s Executive Director, Donald Kerwin, Cardinal Tobin discusses Catholic teaching on migrants and refugees, developments in immigration and refugee policy, ideological polarization surrounding immigration in the United States, the provision of sanctuary to migrants, and how faith communities can become more involved on immigration issues.
