Pope Addresses Pastoral Needs of Eastern Rite Immigrants in U.S., Canada by John Burger
Immigrants to North America, hailing from the world's trouble spots, will be better able to worship in their traditions

I suppose one could argue that the pope has a role to play in adjudicating jurisdictional issues for churches whose territorial boundaries overlap, as "one city one bishop" is not being observed. Still... by what authority does he have to erect the new eparchies, rather than confirming their erection by bishops of those particular churches?
