It didn't take long for the new leader of Chicago-area Catholics to chime in on the immigration debate.
Archbishop Blase Cupich made his remarks last night at the field museum.
He believes the president's executive order is an important first step for comprehensive reform, which needs congressional action.
Cupich will be celebrating mass later today at Saint Agatha Church on the west side, where defrocked priest, and accused child molester, Daniel McCormack once called home.
Cupich says he supports the recent release of documents by Cardinal George involving sexual abuse by priests, and adds he needs to, "come up to speed" on the sexual abuse that happened in the archdiocese.
