Arizona's Proposed Illegal Immigration Crackdown Akin To Nazi Tactics, Cardinal Roger Mahony Says
April 19, 2010 Cardinal Roger Mahony blasted Arizona's proposed crackdown on illegal immigration, calling it "the country's most retrogressive, mean-spirited and useless anti-immigrant law."
"American people are fair-minded and respectful. I can't imagine Arizonans now reverting to German Nazi and Russian Communist techniques whereby people are required to turn one another in to the authorities on any suspicion of documentation," Mahony wrote on his blog.
The Arizona measure, which has yet to be signed by Republican Gov. Jan Brewer, would require police, if they suspect someone is in the country illegally, to determine the person's immigration status. Currently, officers can ask about someone's immigration status only if the person is a suspect in another crime. Those who can't prove they are in the U.S. legally face misdemeanor charges.
Mahony is a long-time supporter of immigrant rights and has spoken out before on legislation be believes is unfair to immigrants.

Yep — and pull those fascist security guards off of banks, jewelry counters, coin shops and grocery stores.
Don’t enforce laws, people — that is just Nazism!!
The dumb bastard Mahoney thinks turning in criminals for violating our immigration policy is the same as turning in your German or Soviet neighbor for not bowing down to Adolf or Uncle Joe? What a flippin retard.
He’s a disgrace to the church.
One of the reasons I am Missouri Synod Lutheran after 12 years of catholic school. Mahoney turns a blind eye to abortion and internal abuse and he reverts to liberation theology
The RC church can be considered by some to be the oldest most profitable mutinational corporation
Funny he should say that. I compare the cross border invasion from Central and South America to the Nazis invasion of Poland.
Try immigrating to Mexico, legally or otherwise, Roger.
Cardinal or garbage man, I despise people who use these name-calling tactics. (... reverting to German Nazi and Russian Communist techniques ...)
” ... Arizonans now reverting to German Nazi and Russian Communist techniques ... “
Is this the official policy of the mackeral-snappers?
What is it these people don’t get? They are NOT undocumented workers. They are illegal aliens. Using nice sounding PC words does not change the fact that they are breaking our laws! Geesh! We’ve got so many books on the laws who can even count them. But are they enforced? Oh no, gotta keep the illegals happy. They have NO rights in this country.
Well, your Excellency, I am a practicing Traditional Catholic, and I think your remarks uninformed, ill-advised and rather arrogant.
If you are so enamored with illegal aliens, then by all means, take them all into your own luxury, feed and clothe them off your own largess, and after they have thoroughly deprived you of your estate, then you may ship them off (at your expense, of course) to Vatican City. I am certain your fellow liberals in the Catholic hierarchy, and perhaps the Italian people, will welcome their new squatters with open arms.
Now, your Excellency, kindly mind the affairs of the Church, and leave matters of state to those who are empowered to deal with such things. In short, your Excellency, and with all due respect, mind your own business.
I am Catholic. IMHO Cardinal Roger Mahoney is a Communist sympathizer at best, and therefore is a questionable Catholic - IMHO and wtih all due reverence to the office that he holds!
This is the same guy that harbors deviates and pedophiles.
How about the Cardinal keep his mouth off Arizona and pay attention to the problems within his organization. We don’t need any more child molesters protected by Cardinals and Bishops and Popes.
People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.
I think that the Catholic Church should deal with more pressing matters that involve them- which is priests who are pedophiles.
When they deal with that problem, then maybe I will listen to their opinions on other issues.
I am Catholic - lapsed. One reason why I do not attend church is a schoolmate ( who attended the same church as I did)was molested by a priest. Not just a priest- but a Bishop. It was hushed up.
This is one of those issues where the Catholic Church is not on our side, another being the health care plan (except for the abortion issue).
The modern Catholic Church is still way to interested in government being the charity for the world.
So when will the good cardinal be inviting a few of these poor folks into his digs?
Did you say that while molesting boys?
