Immigrants Gain the Pulpit

There is an article in the LA Times with Cardinal Mahony who says he will ask priests to provide aid without proof of documentation even if proposed restrictions become law.

By Teresa Watanabe, Times Staff Writer, March 1, 2006;

Wading back into the growing debate over illegal immigration, Cardinal Roger M. Mahony on Tuesday denounced what he called "hysterical" anti-immigrant sentiment sweeping California and the nation.

In an interview on the eve of Ash Wednesday, Mahony said he planned to use the first day of the Lenten season to call on all 288 parishes in the Los Angeles Archdiocese, the nation's largest, to fast, pray and press for humane immigration reform. U.S. Roman Catholic bishops support proposals for a guest-worker program, legalization of undocumented immigrants and more visas for migrant families.
