In anticipation of the 2009

World Day of Migrants and Refugees

Pope Benedict XVI
called for “special attention”
to migrants. In other words, he wants more of them in
his country and ours.

Through his spokesman Cardinal Renato
Raffaele Martino, president of the

Pontifical Council for the Pastoral Care of Migrants and
Itinerant People,
the Pope`s message is that:

"The problem of immigration is not
resolved by closing borders. There are over 200 million
people who live outside their countries of origin,
driven by misery, hunger, violence, wars, ethnic
rivalries, but also by the desire for a better life."

Calls for Immigrant Welcome,

should stay out of

economic and political matters
since, among the
other problems this creates, it lessens his credibility
in religious issues.

I am
Catholic school-educated and am an usher in my Church.
My background and strong faith makes it hard for me to


the Pope

But I am
a patriot and am outraged by

his immigration anarchism

May God
truly bless America, especially now in our very
troubled times.
