R.I. Bishop on Conscientious Objection in ICE Raids

Bishop Thomas Tobin of Providence, Rhode Island, wrote the regional office of ICE asking for an end to the raids and to allow ICE agents to opt out of participating. R.I. is more than half Catholic, including a governor who recently instructed state law enforcement to turn in the undocumented to ICE. The bishop presents a moral choice to ICE agents in the sweeping raids, but not in pursuit of alien felons. (See AP article.)
