It’s a given papal infallibility only applies to Catholic scripture and doctrine. Therefore, the Eucharist is Christ present, no ifs, ands, or buts. Illegal U.S. entrance is not part of Catholic scripture/ doctrine, but the lack of support of such is not in any way a sin.
Some bishops support illegal immigration, but data shows such actions actually hurt many Americans. This conflict of interest is extremely counter-intuitive to the well-being of American citizens.
Defenders of illegals are typically ethnic advocacy groups and church-based groups, who often assert illegals only take jobs unwanted by U.S. workers. This is completely false. Illegals take jobs for which many U.S. workers are constantly looking.
Joe Arpaio, the six-time elected sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona, is responsible for law enforcement. He knows the Obama administration is “cooking the books” when it comes to deporting illegal criminals. After incarcerating 1200 criminal illegals, Arpaio shortly realized 400 of those criminals were released by this administration shortly after incarceration.
Looking at the whole “iceberg,” the Center for Immigration Studies reported, in 2013, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, “ICE”, released numerous murderers, rapists, kidnappers and drug dealers.
The offenders were included with 36,007 criminal illegals released last year who committed 87,818 crimes. Statistics showed ICE released illegals for 9,187 dangerous drug infractions, 426 sexual assaults, 303 kidnappings, 193 homicides, 1,317 domestic violence convictions and 1,075 aggravated assaults. All were convictions. How many more were attempted, but not convicted?
The best way to eliminate non-citizens from voting is by simply requiring voter ID.
Those opposing voter ID’s believe “IDers” are hatred-driven. Stated by V.P. Biden in February, it fosters others claiming racial intentions preventing minorities and poor people from voting. But states requiring voter ID, offer cards free of charge.
Strange how liberals support IDs for all other occasions. Michelle Obama required a social security number and photo ID for attendance for her recent book signing. Those at the Democrat National Committee convention in Charlotte were asked for IDs to attend. But in the same state, North Carolina, 30,000 dead people were found on its voter rolls. And that’s only one state.
As it turns out, NAACP organizers had a "Moral March" against photo IDs, but instructed marchers to bring photo IDs for participation.
But then, a 2012 Pew Poll reported at least 1.8 million deceased voters were still registered to vote.
True the Vote, an organization in IRS “crosshairs”, says in 2012 more than 24 million voter registrations were invalid; greater than 2.75 million people were registered to vote in numerous states; many counties in Indiana and Ohio had more registered voters than residents; 160 counties in 19 states had over 100 percent voter registration; and the Florida Democrat Party was being investigated for voter fraud.
Obama recently announced he’s asked Department of Homeland Security to closely review, and nullify most deportations. Rather than continuing strategies proved to reduce the illegal population, he has politicized for massive amnesty.
Nevertheless in “Impeachable Offenses: The Case to Remove Barack Obama from Office,” best-selling authors Klein and Elliott mention documentation showing release of thousands more criminal illegals from 2009-2011. Analyzing 159,286, legal and illegal, immigrants arrested they uncovered 7,283 illegals not deported.
The New American reports Illegals are typically poor and uneducated. They drain welfare and public education, per Center for Immigration Studies (CIS). “Immigrants in the United States: A Profile of America’s Foreign-Born Population,” paints a truly scary picture of the over 11 million illegals existing in the U.S. now.
“CIS” reported 47 percent of illegals use welfare; 39 percent use food assistance and 35 percent use Medicaid. Taxpayers provide some $40 billion to educate illegals. CIS reported illegal public education highlights their “fiscal problem” created.
“CIS” estimates un-reimbursed care for illegals, will cost taxpayers over $40 billion/year by the end of the decade. While basic human decency requires emergency care be provided to anyone in a life-threatening situation, there is no compelling legal or humanitarian reason to offer every medical service to those residing illegally.
Those issues must be addressed by immigration laws, not by forcing American taxpayers to absorb billions of dollars in additional costs.
Mexico is notorious for encouraging illegals to the U.S., and issued pamphlets showing the illegals how to evade authorities.
A 2009 Rasmussen poll had a staggering consensus of eighty percent of Americans opposed to including illegals under a taxpayer-subsidized national healthcare plan.
Author James Boyard was on to something when he wrote: "Democracy must be something more than two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner."
