Watch Catholic Charities Executive Director Msgr. Kevin Sullivan on MSN Latino Telemundo TV as he speaks about the importance of comprehensive immigration reform.

“We have a system of immigration that is broken,” he says in Spanish, “so we have to change to make one better that is just.”

Catholic bishops and priests from across the country are taking the issue straight to the pews, Telemundo reports, preaching a coordinated message that uses a single voice to back changes in immigration policy and urge Congressional passage of reform that includes a path to citizenship.

The political campaign by Catholic priests is likely to catch the attention of Congress where nearly one out of three members is Catholic.

Watch and listen to the Telemundo interview with Msgr. Kevin Sullivan.
