Steve Bannon claims Catholic Church has 'economic interest' in 'unlimited immigration'

Catholic Bishops: DACA Cancellation 'Reprehensible' and 'the Opposite of How Scripture Calls Us to Respond' Bishop of Savannah: 'Deep disappointment' in White House's push to end DACA
Ellis Copeland | 10 September, 2017, 13:59

Here's NPR's Tom Gjelten. After he left the White House, Bannon resumed his position as Chairman of Breitbart News. "I'm a street fighter". "O ur goal is to support Donald Trump".

The idea that the Catholic church is looking to fill its pews with illegal aliens and is doing so, at least partly, for the mammon strikes me (to put it mildly) as unlikely.

Rose pressed Bannon on it, noting that he is a Catholic and that Cardinal Timothy Dolan of NY - among other Church leaders - opposed the administration's ending of the program.

"The bishops have been bad about this", he continued. "Simple. If you know somebody with an illegal gun call Crime Stoppers, if you don't want to go to the police station that is okay. if you know somebody moving illegal drugs call Crime Stoppers or call the police", said Gordon, who pointed out that by not reporting an incident residents were "contributing to a problem".

To be clear, Bannon doesn't really care about theology or the insider-baseball of church politics.

"They need illegal aliens, they need illegal aliens to fill the churches".

COLBERT: Yeah, it's obvious on the face of it that the church is just cynically welcoming in strangers who desperately need help so the bishops can get into heaven.

"They have an economic interest", Bannon continued. They have, they have an economic interest.

The full interview is set to air on Sunday.

"Caring about and for the "Dreamers" is nothing more than trying to carry out that seemingly simple, but ultimately incredibly demanding, commandment", the statement said.

Catholic Bishops: DACA Cancellation 'Reprehensible' and 'the Opposite of How Scripture Calls Us to Respond'

The Catholic Church does not need these people, who are often poor, to fill its collection plates.

The Catholic Church has long supported the rights of immigrants in the USA - both legal and undocumented, in some cases providing sanctuary for those at risk of deportation.

Catholic officials, including a representative of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Cardinal Dolan, disputed the claim.

TIMOTHY DOLAN: That's insulting.

Bannon, a Catholic, has always been a leading figure in fueling a nativist and xenophobic political movement that catapulted from fringe status to the heights of political power in November.

"I was the only guy that said, "He's talking about something, taking it up to a higher level", Bannon said".

"May I remind you, a good Catholic, that Cardinal [Timothy] Dolan is opposed to what's happening with DACA", Rose challenged. "This is not an issue of Catholic doctrine because it comes from the Bible itself and we Catholics are people of the book". "To make sure that society is just in its treatment of the immigrant is biblical mandate".

Quoting Genesis, Leviticus and Matthew 25, the bishops' statement argued that their support of immigration is rooted in the Gospel.

The Catholic Diocese of Salt Lake City is saddened by the administration's decision to abandon immigrant youth in our nation.
