This humanitarian emergency requires, as a first urgent measure, these children be welcomed and protected. Many people forced to emigrate suffer, and often, die tragically; many of their rights are violated, they are obliged to separate from their families and, unfortunately, continue to be the subject of racist and xenophobic attitudes, the Roman Pontiff stated in the July 15 message.

Yeah, I know, pope-bashing, but I'll just say this-- It must be nice to walk outside, wash a few of their feet and then drive away unlike the rest of us who have to live amongst third-worlders and can't get away.
Is this a new rant from him or a replay of yesterday’s rant?
This is a church growth plan for Catholics in the U.S. There are support services across the country (make some calls in your hometown) to provide assistance to illegals.
They are the biggest coyote enterprise out there after the U.S. government and cartels.
How many is he taking in?
On second thought make it a 1,000.
I say he take them all in to stay at the Vatican.
Ok how about condemning the countries and the people who are FORCING these people to emigrate. Most of them nominal Catholics.
Francis doesn't want it on his turf, just on ours. How about this -- the only reason Francis is saying this is because he is also South American, and he cares more about people that are the same color as him than he does about us. FRANCIS is the racist, not us.
Go shut your pie hole Francis.
He is really getting annoying
Pope has his ire aimed in the wrong direction.
your tagline makes me think I’m drunk
Did I miss the part where the Pope threw open the doors to Vatican City and let 100 thousand diseased African illegals waltz in?
This seems to be way out of line for a pope to say, you’d think.
The Pope should pontificate about church affairs and leave the civic to others.
Hey—Frank—Nothing personal—But go screw yourself.
I like the old-school popes. The ones that were half-crazy from syphilis who ordered the Crusades. Now there were some popes.
This man, Francis, has walls and guards. He lives in safety. Yet he finds the gall to lecture us to take in a neverending stream of illegals, thus exposing our citizens to crime waves and other threats. The hypocrisy is stunning. When he leads by example, and takes even a trickle of *permanent* illegal residents into Vatican City, then he can talk.
