If you needed to find a pro-open borders rat on April 29th, the place to be was St. Patrick`s Cathedral where newly appointed Archbishop Timothy Dolan concelebrated his Mass of installation.
According to The Catholic Herald, New York`s governor David Paterson, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Senators Charles Schumer (immigration grade F-) and Kirsten Gillibrand (grade: C-) as well as dozens of political and union leaders attended.

Dolan read the epistle in Spanish and pledged himself to Spanish-speakers in their language during his homily. The prayer of the faithful was offered in seven other languages ranging from Irish to Igbo, spoken in Nigeria.
But a big, unmentioned difference is that the immigrants he praised are in New York illegally—my parents came to New York legally from Sicily.
Dolan is off to a record start to out-pander his retired predecessor Cardinal Edward M. Egan. That would be quite a feat. But based on his early performance, Dolan is up to the challenge.
