Racist Attacks Bishops on Immigration

At the inaptly named "American Thinker," Robert Klein Engler attacks the U.S. bishops for their immigration stance. Among other charming arguments, he writes:


The bishops have misled Catholics scripturally about immigration....None of these passages encourage us to welcome an invading army of poor people intent on bankrupting our health care system, debasing our schools, stealing our legal identities and territory, diminishing our sovereignty, refusing to speak our language, using their children as human shields to stay in the United States, and destroying our neighborhoods.

Wow. In my experience, most immigrants come here to make a better life for themselves and their families. I had no idea until Mr. Engler enlightened me, that this was their agenda.
