American Roman Catholic Hierarchy Continues to Undermine Respect for the Law; Promote Illegal Activism

American Roman Catholic Hierarchy Continues to Undermine the Law; Promote Illegal Activism

I posted a few days ago about how the American Roman Catholic hierarchy has been aiding and abetting the cause of amnesty for some 20 to 30 million illegal immigrants in this country, focusing particularly on the subversive efforts of Los Angeles Catholic Cardinal Roger Mahony.

Now, at Sunday’s massive pro-illegal-immigrant demonstration in Dallas, Bishop Charles V. Grahmann, was on hand to spur the demonstrators on.  (Hat tip: Drudge.)

This is a serious issue.  

I demand an answer from the Roman Catholic hierarchy:  Are you willing so easily to undermine the laws (and culture) of this land in order to expand the ranks of the Catholic Church?  (It is no secret that the vast majority of the illegals are at least nominal Catholics.)

This anomian stand of the Roman Catholic Church with regard to the issue of illegal immigration also evidently accounts for the dagger that allegedly “conservative” Senator Sam Brownback (R-KS) inserted in his fellow citizens’ backs last week in the Senate Committee vote on the “McKennedy” immigration bill.

This is a serious matter.

Either you are going to side with the citizens of this country (of all ethnicities and religions), or you are going to side with the law-breakers.

Time to call a spade a spade, Your Excellency!  

Funny: If the Roman Catholic hierarchy in this country had put as much energy into speaking out for the unborn as it has for the illegal immigrants, abortion would likely have been banned years ago.

It is all about priorities, I guess.

Update: Michelle Malkin has some great photos from the illegal swarm in Dallas Sunday (yesterday).

Today is National Illegal Alien Day! The news media will attend all demonstrations, but the U.S. immigration officials won't.

Immigration Debate: Facts Every American Should Know

It is ALREADY against the law to enter the United States illegally, punishable by a fine and imprisonment. It is ALREADY against the law to hire illegal aliens. We don't need new immigration laws, we only need the current laws to be enforced - and a fence. Read on: Learn the facts about illegal immigration that every American should know.

FACT: “Immigrants” are people lawfully admitted for permanent residence in the United States. "Illegal aliens” are people who enter the United States without permission; their presence in the United States violates the law.

FACT: United States Code, Title 8, Chapter 12, Subchapter II, Part VIII, Section 1325, states: “Any alien who enters the United States at any time or place other than as designated by immigration officers shall be fined or imprisoned not more than 6 months, or both, and, for a subsequent commission of any such offense, be fined or imprisoned not more than 2 years, or both.”

FACT: United States Code, Title 8, Chapter 12, Subchapter II, Part VIII, Section 1324a, states: “It is unlawful for a person or other entity to hire for employment in the United States, an alien, knowing the alien is an unauthorized alien…”

FACT: In 2006, jobs, elementary school education, drivers licenses, in-state college tuition, bank accounts, food stamps, health care, and even home ownership, are all offered to illegal aliens. Some city councils are even considering letting illegal aliens vote in elections because they have children in public schools. The states of Washington, California, New York, Illinois, Oklahoma, Texas, and Utah provide in-state college tuition rates to illegal aliens; other states are considering the same tuition policy. Several states grant drivers licenses to illegal aliens, ignoring the fact that driver’s licenses are used as a form of ID nationwide. In a few instances, illegal aliens received expensive organ transplant surgery free of charge, and they were placed ahead of tax-paying Americans on the waiting list for the scarce organs. Realtors and lenders in several cities have been known to help illegal aliens purchase homes. Several American cities have become sanctuaries for illegal aliens: In 2003, Seattle’s City Council passed an ordinance preventing the city’s police from questioning the immigration status of people they meet on the streets. For aliens crossing America’s southwest border illegally, water-stations are provided to make the trip through the desert easier. Humanitarian groups placed the water stations along known illegal alien smuggling routes in the Arizona desert.

FACT: In June 2003, the United States Park Ranger Lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police announced the “Ten Most Dangerous National Parks in the United States.” Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument in Arizona, Amistad National Recreation Area in Texas, and Big Bend National Park in Texas, claimed the top three positions because of the high volume of illegal alien smuggling activity in those parks. At Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, the rangers estimated that 250 violent drug smugglers and illegal aliens march through the park and public campground areas each night.

FACT: In April 2005, a group of U.S. citizens calling themselves “Minutemen” went to the U.S.-Mexico border to observe illegal aliens entering the country and turn them over to the U.S. Border Patrol. The Minutemen proved that illegal immigration could be stopped by placing more guards on America’s borders, but President George W. Bush derided the efforts of the Minutemen by calling them “vigilantes.”

FACT: In 2006, it is estimated that more than 12 million illegal aliens reside in the United States. In 2003, the Department of Homeland Security said that it apprehended 1,046,422 illegal aliens, but experts said that nearly 3 million people illegally entered the United States that year. In 2002, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security officially reported that there were approximately 7 million unauthorized immigrants living in the United States, and that 67 percent of them, or 4,690,000 people, had entered the United States without being stopped or questioned. They had entered the country illegally by sneaking across the border. Source: “Yearbook of Immigration Statistics,” U.S. Department of Homeland Security, 2002, 2003.

FACT and OPINION: It took only 19 people to destroy the World Trade Center and kill nearly 3,000 Americans on September 11, 2001. Americans can’t afford to allow millions of people to illegally cross U.S. borders and reside in the United States on the assumption that most of them are just “migrant workers.” Allowing and encouraging illegal immigration to the United States, especially after 9/11, is dangerous and foolhardy.

Thank you.
