Notable Quote:

The humanitarian costs of these raids are immeasurable and unacceptable in a civilized society. I call upon the Department of Homeland Security and President Bush to reconsider the use of these worksite enforcement raids, and without the implementation of necessary human rights protections, to please abandon them. We ask them and the country, including the presidential candidates, to again turn their energies for building support for a comprehensive overhaul of our broken immigration system.

- Bishop John Wester, chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops committee on migration. (Source: AFP, September 11, 2008).
