2 clergy didn't speak for all Catholics
The Nov. 29 headline "Clergy back license law" is, at best, misleading. With all due respect for their admirable vocations, the two clergy who spoke to state lawmakers in favor of granting driver's licenses to illegal immigrants are not "Arlington Heights Catholic leaders" and I hope do not speak for the Catholic Church on this issue.
As a lifelong Catholic I agree with the church's compassionate approach to immigration, but there has to be a more comprehensive solution to the problems created by illegal immigration. Granting driver's licenses to illegals is a piecemeal approach and will just encourage those who favor some form of amnesty, encourage more immigrants to come here illegally and also lead to other piecemeal measures like allowing illegals to vote.
