It appears that some others here are discussing Cardinal George’s foray into being a puppet of the lawless putative administration in D.C. The good Cardinal has been kind enough to respond to my initial missive, and I hope he will have the time, and energy to also answer my latest response. The Cardinal is very sick, so for him to personally answer is a great starting point. I hope he realizes soon, how dangerous a game he is playing by accepting to be used by Barack and minions.
Thought you might be interested to see my own exchanges with the good Cardinal. PRAY for him, please. He is already in delicate health. His support for what we are doing would be a small triumph.

Watching the news today, and your decision to aid and abet illegals was most troubling. My Darlin’ Daddy’s parents came here legally, and in order to do so, had to leave their oldest child behind until they could send for her.
That being said, must you be reminded that Jesus commanded us to, “Render to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to GOD, what is GOD’S”?
Our Lord submitted Himself to Caesar’s law when He was Crucified. How dare you decide to aid and abet these illegal brigands. They are being sent here for one purpose, to defeat the rule of law in America. To aid and abet that lawlessness, IMHO, is treason. Legal Americans are not getting the attention, or support from progressives (our veterans come to mind INSTANTLY!) that these invaders are receiving. Those who would destroy this Nation, are hell bent on doing so by tugging at the heart strings of genuinely caring and charitable citizens of this Country. Open your eyes, and SEE what is happening here. As much as my heart aches for those among these invading hoards who may be truly in need of comfort, the plan is for gang affiliated, drug running, diseased adolescents to paralyze the government systems charged with this type of ‘handout’ so those who have come here legally, and/or, those who have been here for generations but have now fallen on bad times, do not have the resources necessary for them, because the government agencies are too overwhelmed.
These children are here ILLEGALLY. PERIOD! They MUST be returned to the parents who allowed this travesty to happen. Those parents must then apply through the proper channels, just as my grandparents did, and so many others before and after them.
You are WRONG! I have written to you previously to voice my disapproval of your methods, The same type of ‘invasion’ has occurred within the Holy Bride of Christ, the Catholic Church. It is more and more evident that the Church has been perverted to it’s very core with every sort of ‘social justice’ seeker, and predator. It’s why I left the Church many years ago, and why, based on far too many of your antics, I will NEVER be back.
GOD Bless and Have Mercy on you,

Subject: Re: Giving Aid and Shelter to Illegal Children
You are correct in saying these children are illegal immigrants. It is up to the government to protect our borders and to decide what should be done with them.
In the meantime, they need food and shelter. They are children whether or not they are pawns in a much bigger game, they still need temporary help now, we continue to help the poor here.
I’m sorry you have separated yourself from the Church that Christ founded to guide us on the way to salvation. I’ll keep you in prayer; please do the same for me.
Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I.
Archbishop of Chicago
I am grateful for your response. I know these are not easy days for you. I hope you are feeling much better after the latest round of chemo.
It *should be* that the Archdiocese would work to reunite these young people with their families in the country of their origin, not here. I would be far more supportive of your efforts, were you to arrange safe passage for them back to their native homes and their loved ones, and care for them there.
It is not your responsibility, or mine, or that of any other American, to be forced to spend resources on those who have allowed themselves to be used in such a lawless way. Their parents are the parties who have essentially ‘sold’ these young people into ‘trafficking’ in an illegal, unsafe, and despicable game with those who call themselves our government. To expect you, me, the Archdiocese, or any other person, to be subjected to being just one more pawn in this outrageous maneuver, is something that will have major repercussions on those Americans who understand what a truly disgraceful act this is.
I hope you will reconsider your decision, and instead of sheltering these lawless invaders, you will bypass ICE, DHS, and any other *ABC* government agency, and work solely to arrange safe passage for them back to their homes, wherever that may be. To do less, is to allow the Church in Chicago, and America, to be used in a deadly game that pits law abiding Americans against the government who refuses to do the main job they exist to perform, protection of our borders, and our citizens.
You might be interested to know, there will be a rally in opposition of the government’s participation in this lawlessness, right here in Chicagoland. If you are feeling well enough, it might be an opportunity to meet with people who are trying to find a peaceful resolution, to force the end of this travesty, and the government’s use of these children in their horrific game.

I would also like to direct Your Eminence to a very interesting site, operated by a ‘later-in-life’ convert to the Catholic Church. You may have heard of Ann Barnhardt? If not, you might be interested to see her amazing postings. While I do not agree with everything she posts, (I spent 12 years in Catholic school back in the 60’s. I had my own run-in back then with a renegade priest.) you will find some immense food for thought there. It may even give you some very refreshing, new perspectives.
May GOD Bless and Keep you,
