The Pope Is Here; Tom Tancredo Is Not Pleased

Pope Benedict XVI is wrapping up his first trip to the United States as Pontiff this weekend. This morning he addressed the United Nations and this afternoon he became the first Pope to visit an American synagogue. Besides being the first foreign leader to be greeted at Andrews Air Force Base personally by President Bush, the Pontiff has also held mass at a packed Yankee Stadium and a packed Nationals Park (the Washington Nationals' new ballpark).

Colorado Republican and former Presidential candidate Tom Tancredo is not pleased, however. Apparently the Pontiff's remarks about treating illegal immigrants with dignity was a bridge too far for Border Wall Tom.

The same day that the Pope called for treating immigrants with dignity, the Federal government conducted round up raids at Pilgrim's Pride plants in five states.
