My Lithuanian grandmother became a citizen and only learned enough English to pass the test, and then forgot it. I remember her signing official documents with an "X". I don't remember whether or not Mémé was a citizen. We didn't discuss politics.
Hence I enjoyed reading Archbishop Jose Gomez article in the Washington Post. He thinks Arizona's law is unAmerican, anti-family, and threaten to remove humanitarian considerations from our immigration system altogether. This would be a tragedy for the individuals subject to these laws, but also for all Americans.
Archbishop Jose Gomez is the Archbishop of Los Angeles and chairman of the USCCB's Committee on Migration.
