Dissent from Santorum

Rick Santorum has made it official: He dissents from the teaching of the Church on the issue of immigration. And, while Santorum mentions the U.S. bishops, the Church's unequivocal teaching on immigration has also been put forward, repeatedly, by Pope Benedict XVI.

And, to be clear, the reason the Church defends immigrants is the exact same reason the Church defends the unborn: They are human beings, children of God, who, as the GOP candidates like to remind us, receive their rights from God not from the government.
