It turns out, says the L.A. Times today (click on this post's title), that since last year the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and the Diocese of Orange quietly have not been applying that order to parish volunteers who are illegal aliens. Officials of the dioceses say they let the "undocumented" work with children, but only under supervision.
The Times says that from anyone who cannot supply a U.S. government photo ID, the Archdiocese of L.A. asks only for an affidavit that they have not been convicted of any crime, and the Diocese of Orange asks for an affidavit plus two character reference letters.
The Times says that the two dioceses together have fingerprinted more than 70,000 priests, employees and volunteers. Not illegal alien parish volunteers, though.
The Times quotes Rita Mills of SNAP: "If someone can't prove who they are, they shouldn't be volunteering."
