A Reader Writes from Pueblo, Colorado:
In the Saturday, December 16, 2006 issue of the Pueblo Chieftain, it was reported " Bishop of the Diocese of Pueblo labels meat-plant raids as inhuman." In this lengthy news article Bishop Arthur Tafoya [send him mail] decries the six state sweeps in which illegal aliens were caught using stolen social security numbers to work at meat-packing plants.
"Tafoya called the raids "inhuman" and lamented dangers to "the safety and well-being of the children and families torn apart by the raids."
"Tafoya was unmoved by the government rationale for the raids." This was referring to stolen identities of the Americans social security numbers and of course the illegality of the presence of the illegal aliens in the first place.
"A just law, the bishop said, "is meant to benefit, not to enslave humankind. Undocumented workers have human dignity and human rights that should be respected at all costs."
I would say this to our Bishop. Lord, we pray for those Americans who have lost their jobs and identities to illegal aliens. We pray for the homeless and disabled Americans who are unable to find work due to illegal aliens. We pray for the souls in our state who have lost their lives to drugs and murder caused by illegal aliens. We pray that certain high standing religious leaders would look deep into their hearts and quit playing the race card. Lord hear our prayers.
