Church World Service anti-Arizona too!

Not only did the USCCB and the Catholic Church support this past weekend’s anti-Arizona demonstrations, so too did federal refugee contractor Church World Service.

Here is what John L. McCullough, Executive Director and CEO, Church World Service, said about the law in Arizona that simply mimics what is already federal law—-legal immigrants who have not yet become citizens must carry identification as to their immigration status.  No ID and they are turned over to ICE (by the way, this is how the legal 287g program works too).


“We are deeply concerned about the enactment of SB 1070 as it goes beyond anti-immigrant sentiments and supports racial profiling. This legislation feels reactionary and hateful.


As a 63-year-old faith-based humanitarian organization working with 34 refugee resettlement affiliates across the United States, Church World Service understands first-hand the impact this legislation will have on communities. We do take heart that President Obama has strongly condemned this legislation, and urge his administration to do everything in its power to prevent its implementation and the consequences it will have for human rights.

The legislation “feels” hateful.  I wonder do the residents of Arizona who have suffered due to crimes committed by illegal aliens “feel” scared?  Do those Arizonans have “human rights?”  How about that murdered rancher’s family, how do they feel?  Do blacks and legal immigrants “feel” they are being shut out of jobs because an illegal alien will do the job more cheaply?  Where are their human rights?

I guess I will be asking this question forever:  how do refugee resettlement contractors, like the USCCB and Church World Service, square their support for illegal immigrants and by extension their support for businesses that hire them with their contracted DUTY to find work and help legal refugees get a start in America? 

Forget about feelings for a minute and please answer me with logic because the impact on the community is pretty clear to me—-less illegal immigrants looking for work equals more jobs for poor black and white Americans as well as more jobs for refugees!

Lacking any logical explanation (I’m not holding my breath waiting for one!), the only conclusion one can draw is that this is all about Leftwingers beating Rightwingers and creating a one world socialist government where immigrants are merely the pawns!
