KICKING THE FOX OUT OF THE HENHOUSE

Sister Patricia Fox of the Religious Discernment of the Philippines is definitely not the victim here. She knew what she was getting into the moment she participated in political activities. Rappler was one of those who reported her involvement in a rally in Hacienda Luisita back in 2013. She and several prominent members of the Anakpawis group were held on charges of illegal assembly, direct assault, trespass to dwelling and malicious mischief. Yet the CBCP was silent about the entire affair.

Her deportation is due to the fact that we have a law prohibiting foreigners with non-immigration visas from participating in political activities. That includes joining rallies. Other foreigners who have been caught would have been deported within 48 hours. Does being a missionary and working with organizations linked with the communist party make her special?
