Abp. Jerome Listecki sent a "must-be-published" letter to parishes. It's rather anodyne.
In the letter he considers The Donald's actions vis-a-vis refugees from the Middle East and illegal immigrants from Mexico.
The Archbishop "would invite the President to prayerfully reconsider any attempt at a permanent refugee ban."
Odd. So far as we know, the President has not brought up a "permanent" refugee ban.
Abp. Listecki moves on.
"I would also respectfully ask the President whether the construction of a wall on the US and Mexican border is the most appropriate way to achieve the security sought by a democratic society."
Well, I can't say that I am now (nor ever was) a "wall-freak." But every time we hear about more opioid deaths, (with most of that heroin coming over the southern border) a wall becomes more attractive.
It appears that the Archbishop was pushed--hard--to make some sort of statement. Well, he did. Think that will be enough for the Voces de la Frontera crowd? (Hint: nope.)
