This wave is different


In his article on immigration (CR, March 22), Bishop Mitchell Rozanski erroneously equates the illegal immigrants of today with the legal immigrants of the past. The Irish, German, Italian and African immigrants who legally came to New York were clearly entitled to every protection and consideration.

The illegal immigrants coming here today are not entitled to a free pass from our immigration laws and enforcement activities. Bishop Rozanski himself admits even the church concedes the government’s right to establish and administer our borders.
