Former White House Official Steve Bannon was recently interviewed by CBS’s Charlie Rose.
In the interview, Bannon commented on controversial issues such as the Catholic Church’s views on illegal immigrants. Rose asked him, “Can I remind you, a good Catholic, that Cardinal Dolan is opposed to what’s happened with DACA?”
Bannon responded by saying that the Catholic Church was horrible with the issue and, “unable to really – to – to – to come to grips with the problems in the church, they need illegal aliens, they need illegal aliens to fill the churches. That’s – it’s obvious on the face of it. That’s what – the entire Catholic bishops condemn him. … They have – they have an economic interest. They have an economic interest in unlimited immigration.”
These comments have sparked controversy as Cardinal Dolan failed to respond to CBS’s questions about Bannon’s comments.
