Abstract: Who is My Neighbor?
You will find a link to my article, Who is My Neighbor: An Essay on Immigrants, Welfare Reform, and the Constitution, on the right hand side of this page. This article, which was my first attempt to write explicitly about Catholic Social Thought and the law, uses the Welfare Reform Act of 1996 as an occasion to explore how our constitutional community ought (from a Christian perspective) to act towards the aliens among us. It concludes with a short meditation on the Book of Ruth.
