The chairman of the U.S. Bishops Committee on Migration has called upon the Obama administration to halt any plans to send back unaccompanied illegal immigrant minors who have been flooding across the U.S. border.
This is a very vulnerable population which has been targeted by organized crime networks in Central America, said Bishop Eusebio Elizondo in a press release Wednesday. To return them to these criminal elements without a proper adjudication of their cases is unconscionable.
The bishops have asked the Obama administration to reconsider their proposed request to Congress for fast track authority to expedite the removal of unaccompanied children coming to the United States from Central America. Currently, children from non-contiguous countries are permitted to remain in the United States until an immigration judge considers their request for asylum or immigration relief.

As a Christian, I can honestly say I do not understand these people one iota. They’re like another species.
I’d make a crack about Bishops and children.....But, I enjoy my 10 years @ FR.
Pro Choice Catholics taught us that we can ignore our Bishops with no consequence.
The Catholic Church in America should pay for their medical care and education and make sure they are separated from the population at large so as not to spread disease.
Oh? and who will foster these kids?
Please, shut up.
He’s not a pedophile, he’s a Mexican Supremacist.
A MexiNazi, if you will.
He’s part of the Reconquista, wrapping himself in the false clothing of comforter in chief.
Except he wants to use the U.S. as his doormat.
But that’s OK, because the big deal is...he wants more Hispanics of any flavor for ethnic solidarity, and more Catholics...because then he gets more power over the Protestant gringos.
That’s right bishop. Let the whole freaking world in and make the taxpayer pay for it.
Apparently the Bishops love to spend taxpayer money as much as the politicians do.
Pope Benedict was correct when he said that collective salvation was a demonically inspired belief.
the rcc leadership has always been for treason where illegals are concerned given most are rcc members.
Eusebio L. Elizondo was born in Victoria Tamaulipas, México. He studied at the Pontifical Georgian University in Rome and was ordained a priest on August 18, 1984
Just another smirking thug from Mexico, looking to get over on the hated WASPs.
What is this creep doing in our country?
It is inhumane not to send them back
Send them to Vatican City then.
He’s not an American, what does he care if he screws us?
Their own parents or other relatives who we will have to let in if they’re not already here, silly. You didn’t think that this bishop would be doing the hard work in all this did you?
it is treason not to send them back. they are deliberately not securing the border, one of their few legitimate reasons for existence.
ISIL will soon be in charge there, according to their recent declarations.
