Catholic Social Teaching on Migration
Drawn from a rich scriptural tradition, Catholic theology has always promoted human rights rooted in natural law and God’s revelation. In 1892, the encyclical Rerum Novarum commented on the situation of immigrants; in later documents, popes and bishops have synthesized the Catholic theological tradition to articulate three basic principles of migration:
1. People have the right to migrate to sustain their lives and the lives of their families.
2. A country has the right to regulate its borders to control migration.
3. A country must regulate its borders with justice and mercy.
Although the first two of these principles may seem to contradict each other, they are put in context by the third. Catholic social teaching emphasizes the absolute equality of all people and the commitment to the common good. People of faith must seek a way of balancing their valid security needs with meeting the basic human needs of others in the confidence of God’s love of and care for all of His people. It is in achieving this balance that we can embrace each of the principles of Catholic social teaching on migration.
