    With all due respect. We, as Catholics are FIRST taught the difference between right and wrong. Those immigrants you refer to have come here ILLEGALLY. Last time I checked, this was against the law. What you have written is in the words of a political liberal. As a priest, you are not supposed to be telling us to condone a wrong of this fashion. These illegals are costing this country TONS of money. They are stealing our jobs, and they refuse to speak English for the most part. Show me someone who comes here LEGALLY, works hard, and at the very least, tries to communicate with those English speaking people already here, and I will help them as much as I can. Show me illegals who protest violently, murder, rape and more, and I can only say. GO BACK WHERE YOU CAME FROM!

    Father, Jesus would never condone what the illegals are doing in this country. You know it and so do I. I suggest you leave your liberal views at the Church door and practice your religion, and mine, as it was meant to be practiced.

    You reap what you sow Father. Teach the illegals that.
