Am I the only person who sees an immigration red flag in the so-called "faith-based" approach to social services? The Catholic Church is one of the biggest boosters to opening the doors entirely as the Vatican anticipates the U.S. becoming a Catholic country within a few decades because of immigration from Latin America. Catholic Charities already gets $2.3 billion annually from the taxpayers (according to David Broder's July 11 article in the Washington Post). That money fungibly goes into Church's major immigrant outreach programs, dayworker centers, legal help, etc. with very little oversight. Billions more dollars sounds like a terrible idea.
