"CHICAGO - The president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops on Saturday called on the White House to end Immigration raids that split up families.

Cardinal Francis George, archbishop of Chicago, spoke at a northwest Chicago church to a diverse gathering of hundreds who interrupted him with cheering and clapping.

Without naming President Barack Obama, George said the current administration can fulfill its promises of change by working toward Immigration reform. The rally was one in a 17-city series of meetings organized by advocates of changes to U.S. Immigration policy, including U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill.

"I stand with other faith leaders and all of you gathered here today and with every immigrant family in this nation to call on our government to end Immigration raids and the separation of families," George said. "This will be a clear sign that this administration is truly about change."...".
