A Florida Roman
Catholic Wants To Form A Resistance Movement To The
Hispanic Invasion Of His Church; etc.

From:

 [Name Withheld]

Do you know of any

Roman Catholic
groups in the United States that
don`t want their parishes to become bilingual?  

The

Church`s support
of illegal immigration because
Mexicans are majority-Catholic saddens and angers me,
but there must be a Catholic organization

against
its indefensible position.

My parish is 80 percent white but during Sunday Mass, we
are forced to sing a bilingual hymnal published by

Oregon Catholic Press
(e-mail)
that has about 30 Spanish hymns in it.  I was baptized
and confirmed at my church, and I was born in the city
where it`s located.  Now I`m a

stranger
.

The Church quotes

various Biblical passages
that trying to make me
feel that I`m not a true Christian if oppose illegal
immigration. I`m more offended by the

Spanish language
than I am the people who speak it.
 I don`t want a Mass or hymns in any language other than
English.

Any suggestions?  I`ve composed so many e-mails in my
head to the organist, pastor, and cantor, but I know
that I`ll get nowhere without other people behind me.
 I`ll ask some of the congregants, but it would be nice
if I knew that I had an organization on my side.

Interesting! The answer, of course, is to return to


Latin

(rather than Latino).

A California Reader Has A Nasty
Run In With The National Immigration Law Center

From:  Matthew
Kincaide: [e-mail
him
]

A
few years ago I had a temporary job at the

National Senior Citizens Law Center
, which shares a
suite of offices with the

National Immigration Law Center
in Los Angeles.

One morning a reporter and cameraman from a

Spanish language TV station
were interviewing a
woman lawyer at the

National Immigration Law Center
.  That afternoon I
heard a knock at the door.  It was the

reporter
from the Spanish language TV station who
wanted back into the office. 

I
let the reporter and the cameraman in and thought
nothing of it.  The next thing I knew, the female lawyer
who had been interviewed, screamed at me:  "Did you
let those people with cameras in?  We don`t just let
people with cameras in!  Who do you work for?

A
few hours later the director of the National Senior
Citizens Law Center informed me that my assignment was
over.  For letting "people with cameras in", I
was fired. 

I
thought it was pretty flimsy. If I had been an illegal
immigrant my assignment would not have been terminated,
and the

lawyers
would have acted with tact and fairness. 

I
thought the purpose of the National Immigration Law
Center was to encourage

justice
for all.  It might be interested in justice
for illegal aliens but

not for U.S. citizens

Interestingly, I had had several temp assignments for
the National Immigration Law Center before. In fact,
after one long-term assignment, the office manager told
me that the NILC would have offered me a job as a legal
secretary—if I had

spoken Spanish.
  

When, may I ask, will the

immigrants learn English
?   


Kincaide, who
describes himself as an “avid” VDARE.COM reader,
notes the irony of the NILC receiving federal funds and
then using those funds to turn around and sue the
federal government.

A New Jersey Reader Thinks
Connecticut Senator Joseph Lieberman`s Immigration
Stance Will Hurt Him In The Primary

From:
[Name Withheld]

Re: Joe
Guzzardi`s Column
:

On August 8th, All Eyes On Connecticut

If Democrat
Lieberman`s immigration views were as well known as his
views on

the war
, his third party Independent candidacy, if
he loses the August 8th primary, would be
futile.

And if Lieberman were
to win the primary against challenger Ned Lamont, a
Republican opponent supporting the

House`s immigration position
on have a chance at
unseating him. Lamont is missing the boat on
immigration.

If Lamont supported
enforcement instead of amnesty, it would probably clinch
his upset over Lieberman in the primary.

But I guess open
borders are like a religious principle: some politicians
would rather

lose elections
than violate it.

A California Reader Is
Watching Lieberman Too…And Senator Barbara Boxer

From: 

 [Name
Withheld]

I don`t know if you
noticed U.S.

Senator Barbara Boxer
(D-CA)

campaigning
for fellow Democrat and Connecticut
Senator Joseph Lieberman. But knowing that Boxer is and
always has been against Iraq since the war`s start, I
called up both her

Los Angeles
and District of Columbia offices to ask
why she supports Lieberman against primary challenger
Ned Lamont, an anti-war candidate who should be more to
Boxer`s liking. 

The staffers, of
course, had no response.



Joe Guzzardi notes:

Boxer and Lieberman are certainly in lock step on
immigration, however, as the two have compiled miserable
voting records on the national question.
