'Sanctuary for Undocumented'

The position of people of conscience like Fathers Boyle, Olivares and Kennedy is reminiscent of the choice and position of the churches in Nazi Germany in the 1930s. These men have put their churches on the line by declaring public sanctuary. I support their actions and position of conscience.

The INS raid of Sept. 27 on La Purisima Church in Orange County in the middle of Mass is a shocking reminder of the action of SS troops in Nazi Germany. I can only denounce this as an action of no conscience as well as being outside the law.
