You are incorrect as are most Catholics who do not consult their founding documents one simply cannot make up the rules of the church nor ascribe to it what they think it is about The fact is that the catechism clearly states, regardless of any archbishop ignores, that the church is not to pose its will into politics, it is not Togo against a country’s laws and it is never to impose itself onto illegal immigration as By so doing it will deplete the nation of integrity and resources rendering it to asstst it’s own as well as foreign people Look it up

Strange request to look up something. What is the purpose of all these demands from Rome about illegal invasion? I think politics has a pretty good reflection as to what is acceptable by Catholic politicians. Remember Stupak? Biden? Pelouise? etc? Why is it reality is totally ignored?

They are not coming from Rome

If you want to make a statement claimed as fact any thinking person would request that you do a little research

But Rome is not directly instructing our government. Prove it if that’s wrong

And the catechism which does instruct carholics actually instructs them to rebuke illegal immigrants and abide by the law

Anyone not underrstanding this is as wrong as any enatorial pushing for this travesty

Pope Benedict Says Nations Have the Right to Secure their Borders

Pope Benedict XVI reiterated the Catholic church's position on immigration, saying that nations have the right to regulate the flow of migrants and secure their borders. His comment is consistent with what the church has said in the past, but contradicts the position of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. In his statement, Pope Benedict XVI said individuals have the right to leave their country, but that doesn't mean that nations have to take them in.

”At the same time, states have the right to regulate migration flows and to defend their own frontiers, always guaranteeing the respect due to the dignity of each and every human person,” Pope Benedict XVI said.
