    Pope: Refugees Must Be Welcomed Despite Problems

    Pope: Refugees Must Be Welcomed Despite Problems

    Sunday, June 21, 2009 1:25 PM

    SAN GIOVANNI ROTONDO, Italy -- Pope Benedict XVI said Sunday that countries must continue receiving refugees despite the difficulties they create while also addressing the causes that drive so many people from their homes.

    Italy has been battling waves of illegal migrants and has enacted a controversial accord with Libya under which it turns back refugees intercepted at sea before they can reach Italian shores to apply for asylum.

    Vatican officials, the U.N. refugee agency and aid groups have denounced the new policy.

    Benedict did not specify Italy in his comments marking the U.N. World Refugee Day, which was celebrated Saturday, making his appeal more general to all countries that deal with refugees.

    "Many people seek refuge in countries fleeing situations of war, persecution and calamity, and their reception creates not a few problems" for the receiving countries, he said. But he stressed that welcoming them was "still right."

    Benedict spoke during a pilgrimage Sunday to San Giovanni Rotondo in southern Italy to pray before the remains of St. Pio of Petrelcina, the hugely popular Italian saint who purportedly bore "stigmata," or wounds like those Jesus suffered at his crucifixion.

    Tens of thousands of the faithful braved thunderstorms to attend an open-air Mass in front of the Renzo Piano-designed church built to cater to the throngs of pilgrims who visit Padre Pio's shrine each year.

    The United States has always welcomed refugees for the above situations; the problem in the United States has to do with ILLEGALS invading our nation with out any desire to assimilate as citizens but only obtain citizenship in an effort to steal from our treasury and take jobs from citizens sending their ill gotten gains back to their home countries while all along planning their return.

    The ILLEGAL parents know what they are doing; the Abuse of the 14th Amendment to create more children as Anchors gathering more ILLEGALS for U.S. Citizens to endow benefits! The Elitist Politicians and their Elitist Contributors are socializing benefits to the ILLEGALS for their ILLEGAL EMPLOYERS, disguised as welfare for U.S. Citizens, on the backs of U.S. Citizens through our assets such as the Education System, Social Security, and Health Care while privatizing the profits for themselves!

    Send all immigrants to the Vatican City? It is a country and rich, too. Invade the Vatican City

    Vatican City
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vatican_City
    Vatican City en-us-Vatican City.ogg /ˈvætɪkən ˈsɪti/ (help·info), officially the State of the Vatican City (Italian: Stato della Citt* del Vaticano),[10] is a landlocked sovereign city-state whose territory consists of a walled enclave within the city of Rome, the capital city of Italy. At approximately 44 hectares (110 acres), and with a population of around 900, it is the smallest country in the world by both area and population.

    Vatican City is a country, with a no fly zone. I think all refugees should head there, since the Pope is all about helping them.

    Attention Wold Wide Refugees! Go to the closest Catholic Church, they will help you!!!!

    The Vatican has a wall to keep people out - we need one too. Finish the wall!!!

    It's one thing for a country to accept refugees from violence and genocide, but our current flood of illegals is nothing more than people sneaking across the border to make more money and collect free benefits.
