needs to be critical of pres-
idential administrations at
times, DiNardo said, adding
that it’s essential the bishops
remain engaged. He pointed
to the conference’s statement
critical of Trump’s travel ban.
“We’re willing to register
that and state that,” he said.
“But we always want to
be able to work with every
administration.”
DiNardo, 67, who came to
Houston in 2004 as archbishop
after more than six years as
bishop in Sioux City, Iowa,
believes most immigrants and
refugees come to the U.S. for
economic reasons or to flee
violence in their home coun-
tries. While he agrees with
the Trump administration’s
stance that criminals should
be deported, he doesn’t want
to see immigrant families
separated.
Churches have been
relying on a 2011 Immigra-
tion and Customs Enforce-
ment directive telling agents
to generally avoid “sensitive
areas” such as churches,
hospitals and schools when
conducting
deportation
actions. Immigration officials
said that policy is still in
effect, but recent immigration
arrests around the U.S.,
including inside courthouses,
are increasing fears.
DiNardo believes the rhet-
oric in the U.S. on hot-button
issues including immigration
and abortion is too heated.
“You’d like to lower the
temperature so people will
speak to each other too,” he
said.

inside and outside the U.S. In
his first extended interview
since his more than 400 fellow
bishops in November elected
him to a three-year term as
president of the U.S. bishops’
conference, DiNardo said the
conference has had
“quiet initial talks”
with the White
House to arrange
a session between
him and Trump.
The
White
House
had
no
comment
Wednesday
on
prospects for a
meeting, although
such a session
would continue a common
practice for the head of the
bishops’ conference to confer
with the U.S. president.
“Right now seems to me
the administration is still
too early,” DiNardo said,
but offered no timetable on
when would be reasonable.
“They’re still working on
getting their act together. It’s
a massive thing to do to take
over a federal administration.”
Trump has taken a firm
stance on immigration,
passing executive orders to
tighten border security and
restrict refugees and travelers
from certain countries. Home-
land Security Secretary John
Kelly has credited Trump’s
policies and widely publi-
cized arrests of immigrants
living in the U.S. illegally for
a huge drop in the number of
people caught by agents on
the U.S.-Mexico border.

HOUSTON (AP) — The
top Roman Catholic bishop
in the U.S. lauds President
Donald Trump for his
anti-abortion views, for
comments on the importance
of Catholic schools and
for promising to
defend religious
liberties. When it
comes to refugees
and immigration,
Cardinal
Daniel
DiNardo says he
and Trump will
“have to agree to
disagree.”
In a wide-
ranging
inter- DiNardo
view with The
Associated Press, DiNardo,
the archbishop for Galves-
ton-Houston and president
of the U.S. Conference of
Catholic Bishops, expressed
concerns about Trump’s
now court-stalled executive
order blocking immigration
from six Muslim-majority
nations and about the effects
the Trump administration’s
immigration policies could
have on families.
“We have kids in our
Catholic schools that are
crying during the day,”
DiNardo said. “They’re not
sure whether their mommy or
daddy is going to be home at
night when they get back from
school. ... There’s no reason
why that has to happen.”
DiNardo in 2007 became
the first Catholic cardinal in
the Southern United States,
an area where Catholicism
has flourished as more people
have moved there, from both
