From the current issue of The Wanderer we have:
(skipped down several paragraphs)
[INDENT]Brewer said she approved Arizona’s new measure against illegal immigration because “ w] e cannot sacrifice our safety to the murderous greed of drug cartels. We cannot stand idly by as drop houses, kidnappings, and violence compromise our quality of life.”
Nor was the law some radical imposition on the system. “Despite erroneous and misleading statements suggesting otherwise, the new state misdemeanor crime of willful failure to complete or carry an alien registration document is adopted, verbatim, from the same offense found in federal statute,” Brewer said in her signing statement.
Because state government stood up for civil order, Arizona quickly became a curse word in media around the globe.
At a time when the U. S. Catholic Church seems identified as a defender and promoter of massive illegal immigration, it’s a useful reminder that neither Pope Benedict XVI nor the Vatican agrees with this stand.
[/INDENT]The entire article is interesting, if, for no other reason, it actually attempts to capture the other side of the story from a Catholic perspective.
