ARCHBISHOP CHAPUT’S WEEKLY COLUMN: REMEMBERING TWO ANNIVERSARIES

"The recent pledge by the Democratic National Committee chair to support only candidates who embrace the radical unrestricted abortion license is very disturbing. The Democratic Party platform already endorses abortion throughout the nine months of pregnancy, even forcing taxpayers to fund it; and now the DNC says that to be a Democrat--indeed to be an American--requires supporting that extreme agenda. “True solidarity with pregnant women and their children transcends all party lines. Abortion doesn't empower women. Indeed, women deserve better than abortion. “In the name of diversity and inclusion, pro-life and pro-'choice' Democrats, alike, should challenge their leadership to recant... Read more →

Trump Ends Obama’s African Ebola Amnesty

Judicial Watch (APRIL 25, 2017)--In a refreshing move, the Trump administration is eliminating one of Barack Obama’s many outrageous amnesty initiatives, this one involving illegal immigrants from African countries affected by the Ebola virus a few years ago.

Launched in 2014, the Ebola reprieve was issued separately—and quietly—via a Temporary Protected Status (TPS), a humanitarian program that’s supposed to be short-term.
