Law enforcement, bad. More Cardinal Mahony.
One day, Roger Mahony, then about 12 years old, was working in his father’s poultry processing plant in the San Fernando Valley when law enforcement agents searching for undocumented immigrants raided the facility.
”I will never forget them bursting through the doors,” Mahony recalled. ”I was terrified by it. And I thought, these poor people; they’re here making a living supporting their families. . . . It had a very deep impact on me throughout the years.”
