Catholic Bishops Distracted and maybe rightly so. Where is the concern for the poor in the present wall/border crisis?

I am feeling sorry for us catholics and others who are not getting much leadership from their shepherds these days.

In the past with all the violations of care happening on the border and Trump's created hysteria of a wall, there would be us bishops ready to be arrested. Are they still supporting Trump?  Are us bishops so preoccupied with their failures on the sexual abuse crisis that they have no time for those other least among us?

During the civil rights era bishops, priests, nuns, lay folks were on the front lines. That all seems to be lost in the Trump era.

Bishops speak out, but more action is needed.
