Posted on 02/18/2016 10:36:41 AM PST by Jim Robinson
Pope Francis, apparently desperate to reach out to the Catholic Churchâs growing base in Latin America, spent the day slapping Americans in the face from across the US-Mexico border.
In Ciudad Juarez, one of the most violent cities in the Western Hemisphere thanks to the drug cartels, the pope walked up a ramp covered in flowers toward a cross âerectedâ¦ in memory of migrants who have perished trying to reach the United States just a stoneâs throw away,â according to Reuters.
Funny, he never did that while visiting Cuba to pay tribute to those who died attempting to escape that Communist hellhole. He reserved his spite for a nation with one of the most generous immigration policies on the planet.
The pope then blessed three more small crosses, at which âshoes of migrants who diedâ were laid. âWe cannot deny the humanitarian crisis,â Pope Francis intoned. âEach step, a journey laden with grave injustices: the enslaved, the imprisoned and extorted; so many of these brothers and sisters of ours are the consequence of trafficking in human beingsâ¦Injustice is radicalized in the young; they are âcannon fodder,â persecuted and threatened when they try to flee the spiral of violence and the hell of drugs. Then there are the many women unjustly robbed of their lives.â
He concluded, âLet us together ask our God for the gift of conversion, the gift of tears, let us ask him to give us open hearts like the Ninevites, open to his call heard in the suffering faces of countless men and women. No more death! No more exploitation!
This came shortly after the pope said that capitalism cut against God, and that God would punish âslave drivers of our daysâ supposedly exploiting workers, adding, âThe flow of capital cannot decide the flow of people.â

This pope leaves a very bad taste in my mouth.
This pope is not a friend of freedom and free nations.
I don’t pay any attention to him. I’m Lutheran.
The Pope prefers bridges over Walls—I guess to facilitate the hoards of illegal aliens crossing into the US. You woild think he would see what is happening at his own doorstep in Europe with the flood of refugees. They are building walls in Europe today like crazy.
I don’t recall the Constitution saying anything about the Pope being the fourth branch of government.
The Pope is not a friend of the Rule of Law and national sovereignty.
Wall surrounding the Pope.
He babbles of Jesus but means Karl Marx.
2 Thessalonians 2:1-3? The Great Falling Away and Apostasy.
According to Drudge, El Pope also says birth control is justifiable given the Zika virus...
These statements are making me feel very Sola Scriptura and Huguenot today.
This Pope is a pinhead.
He’s Argentinian, ain’t he? They got Zika virus there...
50% of American Catholics a very conservative. This must be their darkest hour.
Nothing the Pope is saying has anything to do with Catholicism.
Bad timing for Marco Rubio. Somebody needs to say it: Marco Rubio, where does your loyalty lie, the United States or with the Pope?
is there still a bullet proof pope mobile?
ah well...shrug. not for thee, but good for me.
Illegal immigration is the migration of people across national borders in a way that violates the immigration laws of the destination country. Some countries have millions of illegal immigrants.
very few Americans are against a reasonable amount of legal immigration, regardless of race, nationality or ethnicity, but most Americans are against any amount of illegal immigration, regardless of race, nationality or ethnicity.
In Biting the Hand That Feeds You, Congressman Steve King of Iowa noted:
What would the May 1, 2006, illegal immigration boycott look like without illegal immigration?
The lives of 12 U.S. citizens would be saved who otherwise would die a violent death at the hands of murderous illegal aliens each day.
Another 13 Americans would survive who are otherwise killed each day by uninsured drunk driving illegals.
There would be no one to smuggle across our southern border the heroin, marijuana, cocaine, and methamphetamines, which plague the United States, reducing the U.S. supply of methamphetamines that day, by 80%.
Our hospital emergency rooms would not be flooded with everything from gunshot wounds, to anchor babies, to imported diseases, to hangnails, giving American citizens the day off from standing in line behind illegals.
Eight American children would not suffer the horror as victims of sex crimes.
I’ll bet you did not see Congressman King’s comments on the evening news.
Let’s start with a broad summary on how illegal immigration is or can affect you personally. Here are just some of the negative side affects of illegal immigration:
easy conduit for terrorists entering the USA
massive escalation in crime
surge in foreign national prisoners to support for years
increases Balkanization of US
increases multiculturalism/segregation/divisiveness instead of the American melting pot
increases desire for Aztlan (reclaiming SW states for Mexico)
increasing number of traffic accidents
main contributor to surging US population
dramatic impact on society and infrastructure, including education
destruction of fragile ecosystems in American SW
main cause of emergency rooms and hospitals closing as well as service cut backs
introduction of third world diseases
increased welfare costs
massive costs to society - over and above contributions
My guess is George Soros bought his election and the removal of his predeccessor. He is an out and out socialist and globalist. Can’t stand the guy.
