Quoted article below, is from link above. Emphasis is mine, my comments in blue. The article itself is a bit dated(2010). It reveals however, a methodology employed by the papacy within nations, to subvert the will of their peoples.

Catholic Bishops Lobby for ObamaCare, Amnesty for Illegals

by Cliff Kincaid on January 27, 2010

Calling health care a “right” to be guaranteed by the federal government, America’s Catholic Bishops are trying to save ObamaCare at a time when the legislation has been pronounced in limbo, dying or dead by most of the media.

The evidence of intensive Catholic Bishop lobbying activity suggests that liberal Congressional leaders are going to give the legislation a temporary respite so that liberal Catholics can be persuaded to pressure Congress to pass both national health care legislation and “comprehensive immigration reform” in the form of H.R. 4321, the “Comprehensive Immigration Reform for America’s Security and Prosperity” Act.

As AIM has documented, lobbying by the Catholic Bishops and their representatives, who worked closely with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, guaranteed passage of the health care bill in the House.

In a January 13 conference call and briefing, Kevin Appleby, a representative of the U.S. Catholic Bishops, explained in frank language why the Bishops are so desperate to pass the health care and immigration bills. He said that the Bishops want a federal health plan to absorb the costs being borne by the nation’s 600 Catholic hospitals to cover illegal aliens.

Appleby said, “We have Catholic hospitals throughout the country that experience the same things that Alan was describing and we serve undocumented immigrants in our emergency rooms and community clinics, etc. So we have a stake in this in that the burden will fall not just on our providers but as Alan described, taxpayers throughout the country.”

This was one of the clearest indications yet that support for national health care legislation is a means by which the Bishops can dump some of the costs of operating Catholic hospitals on the American taxpayers.


The reference to “Alan” was to Alan Aviles, president of the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation, another person on the telephone conference call.

Just four days after the annual January 22 March for Life, which featured many Catholic Bishops standing shoulder-to-shoulder with conservative members of Congress against President Obama’s pro-abortion policies, the Bishops have returned to their liberal ways, firing off a letter to Congress complaining that national health care bills pending in the House and Senate aren’t far-reaching enough. While the Bishops want the ultimate legislation to include “prohibitions on abortion funding,” they also want it expanded to include millions of more people, including illegal aliens.

Indeed, the Bishops say in their January 26 letter that the House and Senate bills should be expanded because they “leave between 18 and 23 million people in our nation without health insurance.”

In addition, the Bishops openly state in their letter that they want “undocumented persons”–illegal aliens–to be able to purchase insurance in the new health care exchange established by the federal government.

Gabino Zavala, an auxiliary bishop in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles for the San Gabriel region, has written an article noting that the religious left, which he describes as “religious leaders and faith-based organizations,” have been pushing for a national health care system “for decades.” He adds, “Catholic bishops have been leading advocates for universal health care as a fundamental human right, not simply a luxury for the privileged few.”

The religious left, led by the Catholic Bishops, may represent the only way that liberals in Congress can ultimately succeed in passing ObamaCare. But that assumes that conservative Catholics will not resist the push to use church resources to give amnesty and federal benefits to illegal aliens as a way to take Catholic hospitals off the hook for many of their health care costs.

Left-wing Huffington Post blogger John Gehring notes with pride and pleasure that the Catholic bishops have “signaled they will play a leading role in pushing for comprehensive immigration reform this year by using the power of their pulpits and bipartisan political influence on Capitol Hill” and that the recent briefing was designed “to outline plans for persuading the public and wavering members of Congress that fixing a broken immigration system is a moral and practical priority.”

Gehring is Communications Director and Senior Writer for Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, an organization funded by atheist George Soros.[/b] He is also a regular contributor to the God’s Politics blog run by Jim Wallis of Sojourners, which received $100,000 from the Soros Open Society Institute to support the “Christians for Immigration Reform” campaign.

That briefing in question was the January 13 “Turning a New Leaf in Health Care Reform” conference call that included a lot of discussion about how to revive and save health care legislation in Congress and pass immigration legislation as well. The call featured Jennifer Ng’andu, Deputy Director of the Health Policy Project at the National Council of La Raza; Sonal Ambegaokar, a health policy attorney at the National Immigration Law Center; Alan Aviles; and Kevin Appleby, whose official title is Director of Migration and Policy Services at the U.S. Catholic Conference of Bishops.

An audio recording and transcript of the conference call are available at the La Raza website.

The Huffington Post’s Gehring said that Bishop John C. Wester of Salt Lake City and Bishop Howard Hubbard of Albany, New York, who are respective chairmen of the U.S. bishops’ committees on migration and international policy, have announced that over a million postcards “touting the need for immigration reform have been ordered by dioceses and parishes across the country” and that the cards will be sent to congressional offices.

The campaign is being run by the Justice for Immigrants campaign, an official project of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

The pre-written postcards say, “I am a concerned constituent and agree with the U.S. Catholic bishops that the U.S. immigration system is broken and is in need of repair. I ask that this year you support immigration reform legislation that keeps immigrant families together, adopts smart and humane enforcement policies, and ensures that immigrants without legal status register with the government and begin a path toward citizenship. Our families and communities cannot wait!”

The phrase “without legal status” means, of course, being illegal. It means they broke the law to enter the United States.

But the Bishops don’t seem to want members of their flock to understand this critical fact.

There it is. Catholic Bishops and laymen playing both sides of the political isle whenever it suits their fancy. Using their pulpits and many even atheist supported organizations to sway the politics of the nation. These same people who not only support, but actually proudly facilitate illegal immigration of mostly Catholic peoples to this country, then turn around and seek to subvert the will of any logically thinking citizens of this nation. This by placing the burden of their own created health crisis in treating the same at their hospitals, upon the tax payers of this nation. Let it be noted by all as well, that when catholics speak of immigration reform, it may mean exactly the opposite of what one might imagine regarding the phrase. As this article reveals, when the Catholic left speaks of immigration and or health reform, they simply mean tax funded support of illegal immigration and the care of these illegals on tax payers dimes. As the article points out as well, Catholic Bishops and laymen called to implement Roman Catholic social justice by law within nations, can and do freely move between parties and positions to support the papacies bidding. This is a prime example of how Roman catholicism has, does, and will continue to subvert the will of nations and peoples from within their own countries unto their own designs. The citizens and nations wealth, jobs, security, and standard of living be damned.

This post could have just as well been placed in the immigration over conversion thread as this one. I put it here because it has been a while since I posted on this thread. Many of the posts I place in the this or that thread related to the Church of Rome are interconnected of course, by the same institution pulling the strings concerning so very many different issues being forced upon this nation by the same.

Biden Rolls Out Red Carpet for COVID-Infected Illegal Immigrants

President Joe Biden is the root cause of today’s COVID-19 superspreader extravaganza on the southern frontier. His come-and-get-it, no-borders policy offers a laurel and hearty welcome to COVID-19-infected illegal aliens.

Biden’s red carpet for COVID-19 carriers on the U.S.-Mexico boundary—atop his mandatory vaccines for U.S. military personnel and vaccination papers for lawful foreign visitors—epitomizes hypocrisy, reckless endangerment, and quite likely negligent homicide.

McAllen, Texas, Mayor Javier Villalobos, a Republican, issued a Declaration of Local Disaster last week. According to a municipal government statement published Wednesday:

Since mid-February of 2021, there have been over 7,000 confirmed COVID-19 positive immigrants released into the city of McAllen by CBP [Customs and Border Protection], including over 1,500 new cases in the past seven days.

Also, 135 illegal immigrants in Customs and Border Protection’s Rio Grande Valley sector tested positive for COVID-19 in July’s first half, up 900% versus the previous 14 months.

Patrons at a Whataburger restaurant in La Joya, Texas, fretted on July 26 when several other diners coughed, sneezed, and failed to wear masks. According to police, these migrants said they were caught by the Border Patrol, released, and tested positive for COVID-19.

“No one told the police department that these people were here,” La Joya Police Sgt. Manuel Casas complained. These and other illegal immigrants were guests of Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley and were housed at La Joya’s Texas Inn & Suites. Casas told Fox News: “The information we have is that everyone that is staying in that hotel is COVID-19-positive because it’s being rented out for them.”

Border Patrol union leader Chris Cabrera said July 31 on “Cavuto Live”: “We are releasing people out the door—day in, day out—with actual positive tests for COVID, and more just keep popping up.”

Catholic Charities and other private outfits largely conduct COVID-19 tests on illegal immigrants, such as they occur.

Statistics confirm that COVID-19 is more common and less inoculated against in countries whose people are busiest busting through the border.

Catholic President, and Catholic charities who receive billions from us tax payers, working together to continue the mass migration of illegal predominantly Catholic migrants into our country. Nothing to see here, move along.
