Not all are illegal

Ed Yarborough has indicated by his actions that all Hispanics in Grass Valley must be illegal. Does he expect Father Tim Nondorf to check citizen papers or green cards as his parishioners enter the church? If that is the case, shouldn’t all businesses in the area be required to do the same? Spanish masses have been celebrated in this country, and especially this state, for many years. There are also masses celebrated in French, Polish, Russian, Italian, etc. Several years ago, most Catholic masses were celebrated in Latin. So what? Rather than attack the parish priest, Mr. Yarborough, write your government representatives. Ask them to find a solution to the illegal immigrant situation.
