    Pope sends aid to migrants stranded at the US border

    Pope sends aid to migrants stranded at the US border

    Thousands of Central American migrants in Mexico are in need of assistance.

    By Vatican News
    Pope Francis has donated 500,000 dollars to assist migrants in Mexico. The funds, from the Peter’s Pence collections, will be distributed among 27 projects promoted by sixteen Mexican dioceses and religious congregations, which requested assistance in continuing to provide food, lodging, and basic necessities to the migrants.
    US border closed

    According to a statement from Peter’s Pence, “In recent months, thousands of migrants have arrived in Mexico, having travelled more than 4,000 kilometres on foot and with makeshift vehicles from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala. Men and women, often with young children, flee poverty and violence, hoping for a better future in the United States. However, the US border remains closed to them.”
    Diminished aid and media coverage

    In particular, the aid is intended to assist the more than 75,000 people who arrived in Mexico in 2018, in six migrant caravans. “All these people were stranded, unable to enter the United States, without a home or livelihood”, the statement reads. “The Catholic Church hosts thousands of them in hotels within the dioceses or religious congregations, providing basic necessities, from housing to clothing”.

    Although a great deal of attention was focused on the caravans at the time, the Peter’s Pence statement notes that “media coverage of this emergency has been decreasing, and as a result, aid to migrants by the government and private individuals has also decreased”.
    Transparent use of donations

    The statement from Peter’s Pence insists that “a regulated and transparent use of the resources, which must be accounted for, is required before the aid is assigned”. It notes that thirteen projects have already been approved, with another fourteen currently being evaluated.
    “Thanks to these projects”, the statement concludes, “and thanks to Christian charity and solidarity, the Mexican Bishops hope to be able to continue helping our migrant brothers and sisters”.

    USCCB Migration Chairman, CRS President, release statement on government asylum policy

    The Chairman of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Migration and the President of Catholic Relief Services have issued a statement supporting a call to end a US policy that requires asylum seekers to go to Mexico while waiting to appear before a US judge.

    By Francesca Merlo
    In their statement, Bishop Joe Vasquez and Sean Callahan say that, “Consistent with the Texas-Mexico Border Bishops March 4th Statement we oppose U.S. policy requiring asylum seekers to remain in Mexico while waiting to access protection in the United States”.
    The March 4th statement, by Bishops whose dioceses lie on the border between Texas and Mexico border, expresses their “total disagreement with the policy of the government of the United States to send to Mexico migrants who are waiting for their turn to appear before a US judge who will decide whether or not they receive asylum”.
    Seeing Christ in those who suffer

    The Bishops urge everyone to see “Christ in need” in these “suffering asylum seekers”, who are “driven by situations of extreme violence and poverty”. They invite everyone to give them the support they require, without assuming that they are criminals – as they are so often perceived.
    Listen to our report


    The Bishops of the United States call on the current administration to reverse this policy, which they say needlessly increases the suffering of the most vulnerable and violates international protocols.
    Looking beyond our borders

    “We must look beyond our borders”, the statement reads, as families are escaping extreme violence and poverty at home and are fleeing for their lives.
    They ask the US government to find a way to address root causes of migration, and especially, to “promote human dignity and sustainable livelihoods”. With the Texas-Mexico border bishops, they urge a renewed commitment to Pope Francis’ call “to welcome, protect, promote, and integrate our immigrant brothers and sisters in Christ”.
    240 "returns"

    Since January 2019, the United States has returned 240 people to Mexico, as they await their court proceedings. The majority of these are migrants who crossed the US Mexico border legally. Mexican officials claim that the number of migrants who have been sent back to Mexico after crossing the border illegally is “very low”.
    This policy is the latest effort imposed by the Trump administration to try to curb a sharp increase in the number of Central American families that are arriving at the border and claiming asylum. Administration officials say that even though many of the migrants seeking asylum are eventually refused, applicants end up living in the United States for years while they wait for their cases to be processed.
    However, immigration advocates state that sending vulnerable migrants back to dangerous border cities is not only illegal, but also that it violates U.S. obligations under international treaties.
    The American Civil Liberties Union and other groups have sued in federal court to halt the program.

    Pope Joins Soros In Funding Immigrant Caravan Invasion Of US Southern Border




    “All these people were stranded, unable to enter the United States, without a home or livelihood,”

    In a move that many have interpreted as a shot across the bow of President Trump, Pope Francis has upped his globalist-leaning interventionism by donating $500,000 to help Central American migrants stranded in Mexico as they try to reach America.

    The money is from church collections from around the world and is intended to help 75,000 people who arrived in Mexico to find passage to America.

    RT reports that The Catholic Church's Peter’s Pence Fund said in a statement that aid to migrants by governments and private individuals has dropped as global media coverage of the crisis decreased.
    “All these people were stranded, unable to enter the United States, without a home or livelihood,” Peter’s Pence said.
    “The Catholic Church hosts thousands of them in hotels within the dioceses or religious congregations, providing basic necessities, from housing to clothing.”

    Many have interpreted this move as retaliation after Trump cut all aid to Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador last month, accusing the Central American countries of not doing “a thing for us.”
