Comment: Dreaming in Notre Dame
The Washington Times reports that Notre Dame University, one of the largest Catholic universities in the country, has changed its admission policy to include undocumented students because it strenghtens the student body. This is a major step for the university, as it parallels the U.S Conference of Catholic Bishops that "has backed integrating [undocumented] immigrants into American society, including supporting legalization." We support this initiative by Notre Dame and look forward to seeing other institutions take the same initiative. Share your thoughts by writing to
