Brenda Walker writing at VDARE gives us a thorough report on the US Catholic Bishops’ publicity stunt at the Mexican border yesterday.
Calling Rush Limbaugh, read this! The only issues where Catholic leaders are on the supposed ‘conservative’ side are abortion and gay marriage, for everything else they are the far Left! Obama does not need to win them over!
Walker (Conspirators in Cassocks) begins (emphasis mine):
Catholic bishops have accelerated their anti-American Open Borders crusade to fluff up their scandal-scarred morality cred in the Main Stream Media and to nudge “immigrants” (legality immaterial) to attend the church that supports ethnic separatism and disdains assimilation. Boston’s Cardinal Sean O’Malley and several bishops celebrated a photo-op Mass near the border today (April 1) to underline their dedication to “immigrants.” These conspirators in cassocks were also scheduled to tour a local shelter and visit with the Border Patrol.
Then she asks the questions MOST Americans ask:
They emphasized the suffering of the illegal invaders—with no recognition that successful invaders steal jobs that should by law go to Americans; and no mention of America’s 20+ million unemployed.
O’Malley et al.’s deeply selfish and solipsistic view of morality: Hispanic foreigners (Catholic) should be cut extra slack—even though their law-breaking hurts innocent Americans.
Why is the American taxpayer*** supposed to support law-breaking just because the perps are poor foreigners? We have plenty of homegrown folks in poverty.
Read it all, it is a very complete accounting of the Bishops’ key role in opening US borders to legal and illegal migrants. Walker also mentions the sad story in Syracuse (25,784 people saw this post on our facebook page—wow!).
Rush read this, conservatives do not suck from the government teat!
***American taxpayers are footing the bill for almost the entire Bishops’ migration fund (here).
This is where the USCCB Migration and Refugee Services gets its money—mostly from the US taxpayer! From their most recent published annual report, here (p.11). The USCCB is effectively a federal agency! They are the largest of the nine major federal refugee contractors.
Revenue (in rounded numbers)
Federal grants/contracts: $66 million
Refugee travel loans (your tax dollars too): $3.6 million
Total revenue: $71 million (which leaves less than $1.5 million from private charitable giving)
If ‘Comprehensive Immigration Reform’ should get through Congress, the Bishops federal take will quadruple as they become the “service provider” for the millions of newly amnestied.
