Pope Francis says refugees’ wellbeing trumps national security

Wall that surrounds the Vatican

The AP reports (via Breitbart) that yesterday, Aug. 21, 2017, just four days after Islamic State Muslims drove a van into a crowd of tourists in Barcelona, Spain, killing at least 13 and injuring 100, Pope Francis urged countries to greatly improve their welcome to migrants and stop collective expulsions, saying migrants’ dignity and right to protection trumps the host countries’ national security concerns — that the principle of ensuring each person’s dignity “obliges us to always prioritize personal safety over national security.”

Francis’ politically pointed message was made in view of the Catholic Church’s 2018 world refugee day that was celebrated on January 14, amid mounting anti-immigrant sentiment in Europe and the U.S.

In the message, Francis demanded that:

  • Governments welcome, protect, promote and integrate migrants, saying Jesus’ message of love is rooted in welcoming the “rejected strangers of every age.”
  • A simplified process of granting humanitarian and temporary visas, rejecting arbitrary and collective expulsions as “unsuitable.”
  • Border guards must be trained to protect migrants.
  • Each new migrant, regardless of legal status, must be guaranteed access to basic services beyond health care, to include access to consulates, the justice system and the ability to open a bank account and survive financially.
  • Even greater protection for “unaccompanied minors,” including guaranteeing them citizenship and access to schooling, as well as foster programs rather than detention centers.
  • Policies that support family reunification, employment opportunities and accelerated citizenship procedures to improve migrants’ abilities to integrate.

Francis’ call was immediately rejected by the leader of Italy’s anti-immigrant Northern League party, which has opposed government proposals to change Italy’s law to accelerate citizenship for children born in Italy to non-Italians. Matteo Salvini, the leader of Northern League and a member of the European Parliament, wrote on Facebook:

“If you want to do it in the Vatican, go ahead. But as a Catholic, I don’t think Italy can welcome and support the whole world.”

I have a message for Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis” is a job title):

Why don’t you mind your own business and attend to your Vatican’s cesspool of child porn, child rape, homosexual and cocaine orgy, and that disgusting homoerotic cathedral mural?

  4. Maryaha, I agree. Until the Pope welcomes these poor helpless woman, children and elderly immigrants and refugees into the Vatican compound, he an go fly a kite. Let’s see, the Vatican is about what couple hundred acres with lots of buildings, and gardens with shade trees, etc. The Pope could house probably 2,000 within the Vatican compound.

  6. I find it interesting this comes from a man in a skirt who has a wall around his neighborhood.

    How about the pope invite these people to come live with him.

  7. Jorge Bergoglio is a placeholder, nothing more. And I’d say that that bloom is off the rose, especially in Italy. I’m wondering whether any defixiones have been placed near him, given what inhabits the Vatican nowadays. The goal wouldn’t be to save what may be left of the Church of course. It would only be for superseding him or, at the least, to administer an emergency tourniquet to prevent a fatal bleed out.

    Pope Francis is a fraud. First of all he is a Jesuit, which makes him suspect to begin with. His history as Bishop and Cardinal in Argentina has been questioned for alleged links to the government and pedophile rings.

    Jesus’s message of love was rejected by his own chosen. The roman catholic church (vatican) has killed as many as islam in the name of Jesus and is no more than the incarnation of the pharisees and temple that crucified him.

    Any nation that can not or will not secure its own borders will itself become immigrant refugees, if not just annihilated by invaders.

  12. He might want to look into his corrupt bank also. He is a communist posing as a Pope. I have not cared for him since day one. And the sudden ousting of the previous Pope left a bad taste.

    Amusing that the vatican walls are actually sloped in the style designed for defense against siege machines.

  15. It’s funny how “world leaders” never seem to share their neighborhoods with the “refugees” as they espouse to others to do. Mike Moore, leader of fat libs across the USA, said he’d open his mansion to refugees but has yet to do so. The pope has only let a very few refugees families live in Vatican city. No word on when killary, Paul Rino I mean Ryan, or Al Gore are going to have refugees as roommates. You figure these incredibly wealthy and influential people would be living by examples rather than exhorting others to do as they say, not as they do.

  16. Hey Pope Fraud-cis. Why don’t you exorcise the devil that’s living with you and your pals in Rome? Tear down your own wall and let all the “refugees” live there! Hypocrite. What a fake.
