Why are US Bishops So Concerned About Trump’s Refugee Orders? Follow the Money Trail

Read it.

Is a conflict of interest behind some of the U.S. Catholic bishops’ strong criticisms of President Trump’s immigration policy, in particular his two temporary travel bans? That’s the question being raised by a number of experts in foreign policy and Catholic charitable work, including a former adviser to President Bush and a leading figure in conservative Catholic media.

These critics are pointing out that in Fiscal Year 2016, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) received more than $91 million in government funding for refugee resettlement. Over the past nine years, the USCCB has received a total of $534,788,660 in taxpayer dollars for refugee resettlement programs, reported Ann Corcoran, editor of Refugee Resettlement Watch.

Doing well by doing good.

    Can’t it just be as simple as they are concerned about the welfare of the immigrants?
    Not everyone is as cynical and mercenary as you, you know.
