    “The Migrant Has To Be Received” Pope Francis Says U.S. Border Should Not Be Closed

    Summary:
    Pope Francis said that migration helps a country to grow. When asked about his thoughts on Texas trying to shut down a Catholic charity that assists mass migration on the border, he called it “madness” and said that migrants must be received. He said they may be able to be sent back later, but he didn’t really know. He said that a conservative clings to something and that it is a suicidal attitude.

    Pope Francis describes as “sheer madness” any attempt to close the US southern border with Mexico, in an interview with CBS’s Norah O’Donnell.

    The Pope sat down to speak with the CBS anchor in a first-of-its-kind interview. No other pope has given an interview to a US news station before.

    In a clip released ahead of the interview’s release, O’Donnell asks the Pope what he thinks of efforts to secure the US southern border and prevent migrants from crossing.

    Pope Francis, in the first-ever interview of a pope with an American TV network, speaks candidly with Norah O'Donnell about many topics, including the migrant crisis in the U.S.,“The migrant has to be received.”

    “I grew up in Texas, and I don’t know if you’ve heard, but the State of Texas is attempting to shut down a Catholic charity on the border of Mexico that offers undocumented migrants humanitarian assistance. What do you think of that?”

    “That is madness,” Pope Francis replies. “Sheer madness. To close the border and leave them there—that is madness.

    “The Migrant has to be received. Thereafter you decide how to deal with them. Maybe you have to send them back, I don’t know, but each case ought to be considered humanely.”


    Religious charities, including Catholic charities, have come in for significant criticism for their part in the US migrant crisis. They have been accused not just of providing shelter and aid for migrants, but of actively trafficking them across the border and within the US. Catholic groups have hit back by claiming they are receiving “threats” as a result of a “far-right anti-migrant campaign.”

    Send all 50 million to his doorstep to take in and pay for.

    He is an evil person and has NO right to tell our country what to do.
    ILLEGAL ALIENS HAVE "BROKEN" OUR IMMIGRATION SYSTEM

    DO NOT REWARD THEM - DEPORT THEM ALL
