Cardinal Dolan: immigration reform a ‘moral imperative’

September 10, 2013

Writing in the New York Daily News, Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York said that Congress “has a once-in-a-generation chance to fix our broken immigration system.”

“No one can be proud of the enormous underclass of undocumented workers that’s been allowed to form — millions of our neighbors who live on the margins, have their families fractured and are easily exploited,” he continued.

“We cannot let this opportunity pass,” he added. “Immigration reform would help families, it would help our economy and it would improve our security. Most importantly, it’s the right thing to do.”

    Having just returned from the site of the Battle of the Little Big Horn in Montana, it was apparent to me that what eventually happened to the Indians, even though they won that battle, was that the huge numbers of immigrants came here and wiped out their culture and way of life. Cardinal Dolan needs to study history and economics before spouting off about the great benefits of immigration. Just ask the Indians!
