From the great old Brooklyn Daily Eagle -
"On April, 14, Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio celebrated mass in honor of
immigrants at the Cathedral Basilica of Saint James in downtown
Brooklyn. Called a Catholic Migration Mass, the event took place as
lawmakers in Washington DC were considering comprehensive immigration
US Senator Charles Schumer, one of the so-called “gang of eight”
senators working on a compromise bill to address the situation of
undocumented immigrants, attended the migration mass. “America is a
nation of immigrants and nowhere is this more true than here in the
great Diocese of Brooklyn, under the leadership of immigration advocate
second-to none, Bishop DiMarzio,” Schumer said."
Side Note - the Brooklyn Daily Eagle has one of the best archive search engines anywhere on the internet - I have learned much about my family's history there. My family were German immigrants in the 1860's and they lived in Williamsburgh over a hundred years ago.
