Even though it denies you another opportunity to bash the Church and as uncomfortable as it may seem, the illegal immigrants are here independent of the positions of the Catholic Church. They are here because of the policies of the state and federal governments, fostered by BOTH political parties, have enticed and rewarded their arrival and done nothing to cause their return. If you want to blame anyone, blame the voters.

All that would be necessary for a repatriation of the illegal immigrants is to eliminate the inducements to their being here. The exact same forces that brought them here would cause them to return.

What many of you don't, can't or refuse to understand is that once here illegals are entitled to the same constitutional protections as anyone else within the jurisdiction of the US by virtue of the 14th Amendment.

Sounds a whole lot like another Catholic supporting the DREAM Act to me.
