Vatican City has walls that would make President Donald Trump salivate, and it admits virtually no refugees. Forgive Catholic priests blindly pontificating about walls and immigrants; they have logs in their eyes.
These men believe unjust deportation laws should be ignored or broken because they tear families apart. Their position begs questions. If parents stop following other laws they believe are unjust, should the government refrain from jailing them to avoid tearing families apart? When parents dump their children on America’s southern border to be used as migration grappling hooks, is not DACA a lawless inducement tearing those families apart? Did not “dreamer” parents put their own children at risk by breaking the law?
Catholic Charities is a pillar of the national welfare industry, and its federal cash cow is the per capita care of refugees. The Catholic Church needs a steady stream of Central and South American immigrants to fill its coffers and its pews. These wonderful people have been ill-served by that church for decades, particularly by its embrace of socialism, which impoverishes nations, and by its opposition to birth control, which impoverishes families. What a great business model.
