Catholic Charities provides material assistance to the needy, right?
Take all of the imagery you have seen of the over 14,000 Haitian migrants camped under an international bridge in the small Texas border town of Del Rio and add the complications of disease, public excrement, unbearable heat, and heightened frustrations.

Now close your eyes and imagine it is 100 times worse.
Because that’s what it is, said Texas Representative Tony Gonzales, the freshman Republican who represents 42 percent of the border. The overwhelmed city of Del Rio had been in a rapidly deteriorating crisis situation when illegal immigrants first began surging into the community in January, but Gonzales now says the situation here is a “Category 5” and that the environment is unlike anything he has ever seen before....
So is Bp. Seitz directing dollars to Del Rio and its residents, who are in great need of assistance?
