Stunning: California Couple
Says They Were Asked to
House Immigrant Children

RushLimbaugh.com, by Rush Limbaugh

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/8/2014 3:30:26 PM

RUSH: This is Ann and Ed in Southern California. Welcome. It´s great to have you on the phone. Hello. ANN: Hello. RUSH: Hi. ANN: Hi, Rush. How are you? RUSH: Just fine. Thank you very much. ANN: Great. Well, we have some interesting news. My husband Eddie is on the phone with us. We live in Southern California, and we´re Catholic, active Catholics in our community, and there was a town hall meeting last evening, emergency meeting called by our local parish priest, ordered by our bishop (unintelligible) and the Archdiocese of San Bernardino. They have made the decision that they´re going to absorb the

Comments:
This was indeed a stunning phone call. It is unbelievable that the regime called the Bishop´s office and told them to house these illegals encouraging people to take them into their homes. There´s no way I would take lice ridden, diseased people into my home! The caller´s husband is a doctor and is terrified of what they may be bringing to our country. It is one of the most shocking calls I have heard on Rush´s show.

I think every Democratic voter should be forced to take in 1/2 dozen of these third world urchins. After all, it is such a great idea to have them in the US.

A couple of thoughts on this:

1) The Catholic Church has long been in favor of "looking the other way" with respect to illegal immigrants. (And I say that as a life-long and practicing Catholic).

2) They´re asking parishioners to house/clothe/feed these illegal immigrants "for up to a month". But what then? Where do they go?

3) If you drive I-15 South from Nevada into Southern California, there´s an agricultural checkpoint at / near the state line. I find it terribly ironic that the state of California (via the USDA - e.g., the federal government) are more concerned with a fruit fly than with all the various diseases that are being brought in via this swarm of illegal immigrants.

So the caliphate now turns to the Roman Catholic Church for assistance in its time of need? Gives a whole new meaning to the term, "Church of Convenience."

And 30 days? Just what are parishioners like the Ann and Ed expected to do when 30, 45, 60 days pass and STILL no one from ICE or HHS is answering the phone?

What next? The Third Amendment is hardly ever mentioned or even remembered, but if "Soldier" is changed to "illegal alien," "gang member," or "foreign invader" being quartered in our residences, that´s what this endlessly corrupt Regime is seeking. As to whether the present is a time of peace or war, that´s a matter of opinion. Considering the expansively coercive attitudes of our wayward rulers toward us, the latter makes more sense.

#3, the annual Bishop´s Appeal lists so many charitable outreach activities to aliens it seems as if that´s all they´re collecting for.

Why should the Church and its members do anything to aid this administration after the way it has treated the Church, and people of good will of all Judeo-Christian faiths?

Well, it´s not government asking people to take in the illegals, is it. A church can ask members if they wish and as long as it is voluntary, no violation of the 3rd Amendment. (No doubt a violation of immigration laws, though.) This is how the Catholic Church has always seen its role, and while I would advise anyone against risking the health and safety of their own families, I am not at all surprised that the church has taken this position. As they truly believe this is what Christ would have them do, they are consistent in their actions. Non-Catholics (like me) should understand that we largely agree with Catholics about many, many topics, but the death penalty and immigration are two areas where many conservatives will disagree with the Catholic Church.

Any CA LDotters have some wisdom about what might happen if these charitible Californians ask their "guests" to leave and the guests decline to do so? I believe it´s a matter for civil litigation and not law enforcement. Are they tenants? Squatters? What are their rights once they´re through the door?

Two things even more stunning are that the Bishop agreed and asked his congregation to accept some children and this couple agreed to do it. If they don´t withdraw their assent they will have these children forever and be putting them through college.

Of course, all the people coming are Catholics. Maybe the Bishop sees advantage to more Catholics. This was urged on French Canadians in Canada where the church urged them to have children to outnumber the oter Canadians.

I too heard the phone call on Rush´s show today. It is beyond the pale for the government of the United States to call Catholic Bishops who then insist that their parishioners take these immigrants into their own homes. As if that were not bad enough, they are then asked not to speak to any media people about it.

These immigrants are then fanned out across the entire country carrying God knows what kinds of plagues. This is beginning to look positively biblical.

When you combine this apocalyptic immigrant story, (with sole credit going directly to Barack Obama) with the accelerated war that is going on in Israel as we speak, it is getting downright scary at this point.

Catholics circumvented immigration law by giving refuge to the illegal aliens. Members became accomplice to the crime by supporting and aiding the church. What is America doing? Asking its citizen to commit a crime at the risk of exposing themselves to foreign diseases? This is Twilight Zone. Imagine, Catholic church asking its congregations to commit a crime, to sin, to willfully break the law of the land. ....america is lost.

#16 - A sin is an offense against the law of God, not the state.

If an offense against the state were a sin - then that would mean the state has established a religion and that in itself is against the Constitution.

Now - if I obeyed the law such as HHS mandates - that would be a sin!

But wait a minute -- what about those FEMA camps, who are they for?

Six or so years ago I´d listen to about 30 minutes of crazy Alex Jones out of Austin while I was driving back roads on Sundays. He was telling people these FEMA camps were being formed back then -- that things were being set up - but for what? An emergency, yes - but what emergency? And have any of them been used??

And why aren´t they being used now? Will people who are protesting the buses be taken there? All of this is crazy.

Who is screening these people they are taking in? They can be gang members, murders, criminals and all kinds of things. I would never agree to that. I think it is very odd that 70% of the people at the church meeting said they would do it. If this actually happens, there will be some real horror stories that come out this kind of thing, truly bad things will happen to some people.

Maybe the Bishop and parishioners need to know:
Immigration law, 8 US Code 1324 states that it is a crime to, either knowingly or recklessly, “conceal, harbor, or shield from detection, or attempt to conceal, harbor, or shield from detection… transport, or move or attempt to transport or move” or to even “encourage or induce” an illegal alien “to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, knowingly or in reckless disregard of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in violation of law.” It is not only a crime to actually commit these offenses, but it is a crime to even attempt to do so. Anyone found guilty of violating 8 US Code 1324 is subject to fines, prison or both.

I know Christ said that He came to divide and not unite and I cannot think of a better example to illustrate that than what is happening today to my Catholic Church.

That being said, tomorrow I am going to call my priest and ask what my parish is doing concerning these "immigrants" and see if his response is similar to California.

In the meantime, I will not give one thin dime to them, but to organizations I know are on our side. Wow, we are living in interesting times!

From a legal point of view one must refuse if asked to house aliens. There are too many cases of squatters being accorded ´rights´ that they have no reason to have. Leftist ambulance chasers will judge shop until they find one that will sign eviction papers for removing YOU, not your house ´guests´, you from your home.

Be polite. Don´t threaten someone, the Feds, or Zero himself no matter how you feel about this whole situation. Remember you may be being recorded (remember the NSA?). Just say "NO."

Also be sure that your neighbors know that if someone in your home gets sick because your neighbor hosts a horde of illegals, you expect him to pay for your care and possibly will bring legal charges against him.

Sound cold? Maybe so but IMO our citizens must draw the line somewhere. So it´s Tuff tacos, Pancho. You should have stayed home and worked to improve your own backyard.

Yes there will be legal consequences. The problem is that we have a lawless administration. The constitution and "laws" mean nothing unless the government needs to enforce something to keep you, the working tax paying citizen, from getting in their way.
There will eventually be an executive order that requires American families to "house" the illegals who the government already refers to as "refugees". Doesn´t matter what the constitution says. Things are escalating around the world.

Stand your ground and have the courage of your convictions.

I don´t see a problem with government asking the churches to pitch in and help out. I didn´t see the problem when W suggested it, I don´t see a problem now. Everyone is still free to say no.
And while I see taking in the poor and the stranger as a Christian duty and blessing I don´t think it applies to aiding and abetting crimes. I also do not see aiding and abetting the government in perpetuating a crime as a Christian duty. Moreover, to the extent they are helping to spread disease, I do not see a Christian duty. Finally, I do not see a Christian duty in subverting the laws of the US that result in a burden upon fellow Americans.
I might see things differently if the poor did not have a home. But they do and they can go back to it. This is simply helping people break the law to gain something they are not entitled to have. They are helping these people steal from fellow Americans. That is not a Christian duty.

It is no surprise to see the Catholic Church taking that position. It can if it wants.

But the individual should be careful. All sorts of legal woes may arise from offering strangers a place in your home. And no Bishop can exempt you from those.

The RC church has cathedrals and parish halls and schools and camps and retreats. I would tell the Bishop to contact me again when those all overflow.

The House made a bipartisan demand Friday that Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson conduct a comprehensive review of the Secret Service and not just a probe of how they reacted to last month’s fence jumper. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and the panel’s top Democrat, Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said in the letter to Johnson that a September hearing on the agency exposed “a series of dangerous security breaches,” that point to serious flaws. Issa and Cummings also called on Johnson to make public a currently classified internal report on the incident as well as

Bret Baier asked Johnson: Did you ask Secret Service Director Julia Pierson to resign? “Director Pierson offered her resignation, and I accepted it,” he told Baier.

How to assess Eric Holder’s record and legacy as attorney general? Let’s start with what should be an obvious proposition: Holder’s policies and approach to the job were consistent with the person who appointed him — Barack Obama. Lest Republicans forget, Obama was elected and reelected to the presidency by large margins in 2008 and 2012. First, congressional accusations against Holder on the controversial “Fast and Furious” “gun walking” program have been proven factually wrong. According to a thorough review by the independent inspector general of the Department of Justice, Holder did not know about this

Former Housing and Urban Development loan specialist Brian Thompson pleaded guilty Thursday to stealing $843,000 of taxpayer money in a wire fraud scheme. Thompson was responsible for selling properties acquired by the government after borrowers defaulted on their HUD-guaranteed mortgages. Specialists like Thompson were tasked with ensuring the sale of these properties at the best possible price to reimburse the government for taxpayer funds made to mortgage lenders for insured loans. Instead, he funneled portions of the proceeds into bank accounts he controlled, netting himself $843,000 in the process.

At times, the drones--or Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)--were being used for purposes other than border or immigration enforcement. But the GAO does not have a full accounting of when and where the drones were flown, or what they were used for during the flight hours spent in “other airspace.” In a series of briefing slides provided in August to the staffs of the House and

In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events.

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up. In her remarks, Obama pushed the President´s newest campaign line that he has saved the economy based on

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey. I hated

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in
