The Catholic Labor Network is a place for Catholics — lay, religious and clergy — who find inspiration in Catholic Social Teaching on labor and work.

On this site we come together to exchange information about the Church and social justice and to support working people in their struggles. We promote the cause of workers and Catholic social teaching in our labor unions, parishes and other organizations.

New Bill Seeks to Protect Farmworkers from Deportation

Our friends in the United Farm Workers and the National Farm Workers Ministry are urging support for the Agricultural Workers Program Act, a bill designed to help the workers who harvest our foods secure legal residency. The bill, submitted to Congress in May, would enable undocumented workers who can demonstrate they have worked 100 days in US agriculture for two years can obtain a “blue card” conferring legal status. Law-abiding farmworkers who continue to work in agriculture would eventually be able to earn a green card and permanent legal residency. These men and women, whose backbreaking labor feeds all of us, deserve our protection. CLICK HERE to email your legislative representatives to support this bill.
