SF Archbishop Endorses Immigration Reform, Opposes Gay Rights Amendment

May 14, 2013

The Catholic Archbishop of San Francisco said on Monday that he endorsed the immigration reform bill currently under consideration in Congress, but opposed a gay rights amendment that could be added to the legislation. Speaking at a news conference at Mission Dolores with immigrant rights groups and undocumented immigrants, Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone said he supported the idea of immigrants living in the United States illegally having a path to citizenship or at least a green card.
