Cardinal, House speaker discuss immigration reform
February 12, 2014
Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, who served as Archbishop of Washington from 2001 to 2006, met recently with the speaker of the House of Representatives to discuss immigration reform.
“According to a person familiar with the session, [Rep. John] Boehner did not make any promises to McCarrick,” The Washington Post reported. “But the huddle between the two longtime friends underscores Boehner's continued interest in immigration reform, in spite of a push by conservatives to shelve the issue.”

Cardinal Theodore McCarrick is the "patron saint" of our U.S. political bishops. He earned this distinction by changing the meaning of a message he received from the Vatican so that it supported his political position in a report to the USCCB!

Is "reform" the new euphemism for "amnesty" ??
