Illegal immigrants gaming the U.S. system

How dramatic was the recent article about bishops celebrating Mass at the Mexican border. Would they have gotten in the news if they had done the same for legal American citizens, "who are simply trying to find a better life"? Was this a Christian act, or an attempt to dictate politics and encourage foreigners to break American laws? Do good Christians knowingly, intentionally and willfully sneak illegally into a country? Doesn't the church preach honesty? Maybe these bishops should go to confession.
