Utah Bishop Clueless
But just keep banging the drum of the 'Big Lie', You Excellency

Interesting headline I just read, and here's some of the article;
Solving illegal immigration requires fixing economic causes, stresses Bishop Wester

Washington D.C., Jun 4, 2010 / 01:29 am (CNA).- Meeting with other bishops in a conference on immigration reform on Thursday, Bishop John C. Wester underlined the need “to address the economic root causes of migration and seek economic policies which would help create jobs” in other countries. This, he stressed, “is the lasting and humane solution to the challenge of illegal immigration.”
Mexico's unemployment half that of America's

Are Mexicans flooding into the United States by the millions due to poverty in their own nation, or is this part of the long dreamt of Mexican Reconquista of the American Southwest? Or is it simply part of a plan by Mexico's ruling elite to dump their poor on the United States of America?

Or all of the above?

According to TradingEconomics.com, the most recent Mexican unemployment numbers are roughly half that of The United States.

~Mexico's unemployment rate at the end of April, 2010 stood at 5.53%.
~America's unemployment rate for the same date was 9.9%.
~Rampant "Crushing Poverty" In Mexico?
British-based ExpatForum.com states that Mexico remains to be the 12th biggest economy in the world. It has a total GDP of over 1 trillion euros and has a per capita GDP of 11,250 euros which ranks 63rd globally.

ExpatForum.com further wrote that Mexico has been determined as a newly industrialized country with an upper middle income country. Poverty rates have significantly decreased by over 10%.

According to Destino magazine,
~Mexico is #1 in all Latin America for foreign investment, #4 in the world.
~Mexico is #5 in the world for oil production.
~Mexico is #7 in the world for exportation.
~Mexico is 2nd largest population in all of Latin America, 11th in the world.
~Mexico is a country which internal reserve actually exceeds its external debt. Currently ~Mexico's debt is 34 billion dollars with reserves topping 80 billion.
~Mexico pays great returns on investments, currently interest rates on Mexican government treasuries are 8.25%.
~Within the next 10 years, 70 million people will retire. 25-30% of them will make some type of investment in Mexico.
~Further, almost one-third (11 out of 35) of Latin American billionaires are Mexican.
Mexican Leaders: In Their Own Words

Former Mexican President Ernesto Zedillo at the National Council of La Raza (The Race) meeting in Chicago, July 23, 1997: "I have proudly affirmed that the Mexican nation extends beyond the territory enclosed by its borders and that Mexican migrants are an important - a very important - part of it."

Juan Hernandez, while serving on Mexican President Vicente Fox's cabinet, told ABC's "Nightline": "We are betting that the Mexican-American population in the United States . . . will think Mexico first."

Mexican President Vicente Fox, May, 2005: "There is no doubt that Mexican men and women, full of dignity, drive and a capacity for work, are doing the jobs that not even blacks want to do there, in the United States."

I don't get it. Are the bishops doing this because they think Mexican nationals will fill the churches? Is this about money?
