The 19-month ordeal of immigrants arrested in last year’s immigration raid at the former Agriprocessors meatpacking plant has turned many of them into human rights activists.

“They are the Rosa Parkses of our generation,” said Sister Mary McCauley, referring to the Hispanic mothers forced to wear GPS ankle bracelets as a condition of their release from jail to care for their children.

In their steadfast advocacy of the rights of immigrants and their dignity under duress, they have served as sympathetic faces for the victims of collateral damage wrought by enforcement of U.S. immigration laws, said McCauley, who worked daily with the women until her recent retirement.

Mexican immigrant Roselia Ramirez Martinez, makes no apology for coming to the United States without benefit of a visa.

Oh spare me. They are nothing more nothing less than criminals. My only question is why are they still here?

Because, like it or not, they now have "rights" and a "due process".
No more "put on a bus back home".

Sister Mary should be forced to wear a Dunce Cap for making this ridiculously stupid comment.

Disgusting: comparing Rosa Parks to those losers--------McCauley.

There are no slavers importing scads of (mostly Hispanic) illegal aliens into the USA in the 20th/21st Centuries -------unlike the sordid past of too many American Blacks (and the rest of us with known Black heritage).

Isn’t that the truth! These delusional illegals have been so brainwashed, until they actually believe they have a “right” to be here. They have as much in common with Rosa Parks as a fruit fly.

The Catholic Church will continue to advocate for and protect illegal aliens under the cloak of humanitarism because most of the illegals are of that faith. They need to be dealt with by the federal government about their interference in federal law.

Another reason why Churches need to have their tax exempt status removed.

I have to agree with you 100%. Not all churches just those that insist on making political statements.

I agree as well. If Churches want to get involved in politics they should be forced to give up their exempt status. Then let's see how strongly they feel about it.
