Pope Francis Calls on U.S.
to Welcome Illegal Immigrants

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Robert Wilde

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/16/2014 11:55:14 AM

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

Comments:
I understand his humanitarian concerns, but what about the disastrous economic impact on this country?? I´m sick of everyone in the world telling us what we should do in this country. I note that people aren´t flooding the borders of the hell holes of Iraq, Syria, Somalia, etc. We cannot take care of the entire world!!

From the official Vatican translation:

This humanitarian emergency requires, as a first urgent measure, these children be welcomed and protected. These measures, however, will not be sufficient, unless they are accompanied by policies that inform people about the dangers of such a journey and, above all, that promote development in their countries of origin. Finally, this challenge demands the attention of the entire international community so that new forms of legal and secure migration may be adopted.

Note - he´s referring to the entire international community to adopt legal and secure immigration policies.

I agree with the Pope that we have to show basic human compassion to the illegals. For the very short time that they should be here, we need to make sure they get food and emergency medical care.

But then they must be immediately returned to their home countries.

They can then apply to come here legally if they truly want to come to this country.

There is nothing un-compassionate or un-Christian about any of that.

Poster 5 where is the "basic human compassion" for the citizens of the United States? Where is the "basic human compassion" for the taxpayers who are going to have to foot the bill? Where is the "basic human compassion" for the people who live in these boarder towns in TX AZ & NM? Where is the "basic human compassion" for the service man being held in a Mexican prison?

The time for "basic human compassion" is done. Peoples hearts "bleed" they "bleed" so much they no longer know or understand what it is they are "bleeding" for.

HOW many could occupy Castle Gandolfo?
Pope Francis would have given a valuable message if he cautioned his Bishops and Arch Bishops to OBEY the laws and stop violating them in the USA.

Why are unaccompanied minors allowed entry? They should be with their parents. Religious and secular leaders should not be promoting the break up of families.

Central America and Mexico should regard the great migration of their citizens to the U.S. as a great shame on their own governance. We should shame them for allowing this travesty to their people.

I´m an 85 year old Catholic who was never in awe of any Pope from Pius XII to Francis, except for John XX23. From the first words from Francis I knew I couldn´t care less for anything he has and would say. He may not be a communist but he is on the edge of the envelope. The Vatican is large enough to take on thousands of these illegal wetback childre. Has he any thought to bringing them to Vatican City? I think not, just why don´t you Americans take on the problems of Central America and elsewhere?. Like Gen. McAuliff said to the Germans at Bastogne, NUTS!!

For decades, America has given freely of her time, treasure and military assistance and has asked nothing in return. It´s a good thing because we have gotten nothing in return except for the gratitude of the poor souls we have saved from death and destruction. Those who accept our help and then spout their hatred for us are all around the world, Mexico and most Central and South American countries being among them. You welcome them Frankie, and spend some of that Vatican treasure on them, we are broke and tired.

You would all do well to click through Breitbart to Patheos and then to the Vatican Radio link and read for yourself what Pope Francis said.

You are getting reaing Breitbart´s interpretation of Patheos´ interpretation of the Pope´s written address to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development.”

Read what he said in context, not what someone thinks he said.

The Vatican should be good for housing about 1000 of them and Rome should be able to make room for ten times that. Then there is Castel Gandolfo, a nice resort atmosphere for the "kids".

Why has the Catholic Church allowed these countries - El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras - to descend into conditions that are so purportedly hellacious that their residents are fleeing and invading our country?

The Pope is working on this from the wrong angle. Go to those countries and work with your Church there to right these wrongs. That should be your mission.

When the Pope opens the Vatican to all the homeless in Europe and the world, then and only then does he have the right to tell us what we should do. In addition, the Catholic church has millions and millions of dollars wrapped up in art etc. Sell those and use the money to help the poor before you preach to others. Pretty hypocritical.

Easy to do when you aren´t the one paying.

That said, his statement wasn´t all that bad - he referred to secure border and development of those hellholes down sluth. The first step toward that is to quit electing communists who suction all the economic life out of a country. That starts with getting rid of all the liberation theology that has polluted those fair lands. Mr. Pope, your move.

In response to Obama Nationalizes The 2014 Election As Democrat Candidates Cringe: There´s so much happening in the news right now that Obama declaring the 2014 elections are a referendum on his Presidency probably won´t get as much notice as it deserves.

The House made a bipartisan demand Friday that Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson conduct a comprehensive review of the Secret Service and not just a probe of how they reacted to last month’s fence jumper. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and the panel’s top Democrat, Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said in the letter to Johnson that a September hearing on the agency exposed “a series of dangerous security breaches,” that point to serious flaws. Issa and Cummings also called on Johnson to make public a currently classified internal report on the incident as well as

Bret Baier asked Johnson: Did you ask Secret Service Director Julia Pierson to resign? “Director Pierson offered her resignation, and I accepted it,” he told Baier. Of securing the border, Johnson said Homeland Security brings to bear a risk-based strategy, focusing resources on places where officials see migration and threats. He called it an

How to assess Eric Holder’s record and legacy as attorney general? Let’s start with what should be an obvious proposition: Holder’s policies and approach to the job were consistent with the person who appointed him — Barack Obama. Lest Republicans forget, Obama was elected and reelected to the presidency by large margins in 2008 and 2012. First, congressional accusations against Holder on the controversial “Fast and Furious” “gun walking” program have been proven factually wrong. According to a thorough review by the independent inspector general of the Department of Justice, Holder did not know about this

Former Housing and Urban Development loan specialist Brian Thompson pleaded guilty Thursday to stealing $843,000 of taxpayer money in a wire fraud scheme. Thompson was responsible for selling properties acquired by the government after borrowers defaulted on their HUD-guaranteed mortgages. Specialists like Thompson were tasked with ensuring the sale of these properties at the best possible price to reimburse the government for taxpayer funds made to mortgage lenders for insured loans. Instead, he funneled portions of the proceeds into bank accounts he controlled, netting himself $843,000 in the process.

The Department of Homeland Security flew drones equipped with video cameras over the United States--away from border and coastal areas--for 1,726 hours from fiscal 2011 through this April, according to the Government Accountability Office. At times, the drones--or Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)--were being used for purposes other than border or immigration enforcement. But the GAO does not have a full accounting of when and where the drones were flown, or what they were used for during the flight hours spent in “other airspace.” In a series of briefing slides provided in August to the staffs of the House and

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

I’m always sceptical when I hear scare-mongering claims about diseases. From bird flu to SARS, we’re repeatedly told it’s going to be the new Plague that will wipe everyone out and then…it doesn’t. Probably because the scare-mongering itself makes people take it seriously enough to prevent it spreading. But there is something very sinister and frightening about this Ebola outbreak, which has so far infected 7,100 and killed 3,300. [Snip] It’s hard to think of a more cack-handed, dangerously inept response than what transpired in Dallas. Consider what we now know: Thomas Eric Duncan, a 42-year-old Liberian citizen, had been

In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up. In her remarks, Obama pushed the President´s newest campaign line that he has saved the economy based on

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey. I hated

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in
