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.

Rep. Tim Bishop (D., N.Y.) warned during a recent speech that up to 40 radicalized U.S. citizens who have fought alongside the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL or ISIS) have already returned to the United States, where they could pose a terrorist threat. Bishop claims that of the 100 or so Americans who have traveled to the Middle East to join ISIL’s ranks, some 40 have returned and are currently being surveilled by the FBI, according to his remarks, which were filmed and uploaded to YouTube last week. “One of the concerns is the number of U.S. citizens who have

Bill Ayers, according to the right, is Barack Obama’s terrorist trainer and ghostwriter. Upon further inspection, Ayers is nothing quite as dramatic or fearsome. While more famous for his anti-war activities as a founder of the Weather Underground in the 1960s and ‘70s, he is now a committed educator. Retired from his education professorship at the University of Illinois in Chicago, Ayers continues to give lectures to teachers in training, speak at education conferences and agitate against America’s two-tiered educational system – one for rich, one for poor – on behalf of low-income parents, students and instructors.

The Obama administration is ramping up its response to West Africa´s Ebola crisis, preparing to assign 3,000 U.S. military personnel to the afflicted region to supply medical and logistical support to overwhelmed local health care systems and to boost the number of beds needed to isolate and treat victims of the epidemic. President Barack Obama planned to announce the stepped up effort Tuesday during a visit to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta amid alarm that the outbreak could spread and that the deadly virus could mutate into a more easily transmitted disease.

In early June 1964, a group of Republican governors sought to wrestle control of their party from Barry Goldwater, the Arizona conservative who was about to lead the GOP to one of the most crushing defeats in its history. The governors saw a disaster in the making, and sought a moderate candidate who could capture the imaginations of grassroots Republicans—but also beat President Lyndon Johnson in the general election. Led by Ohio’s James Rhodes—the Republican Governors Association was meeting in Cleveland, and Rhodes was a legendary vote counter—the group included Pennsylvania’s William Scranton and later New York’s Nelson Rockefeller.

As he laid out his strategy to combat the Islamic State in both Iraq and Syria, President Obama rejected the “best military advice” of his top military commander in the Middle East. Quoting two U.S. military officials, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday that Army Gen. Lloyd Austin, commander of U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM), said “that his best military advice was to send a modest contingent of American troops, principally Special Operations forces, to advise and assist Iraqi army units in fighting the militants.” Austin’s recommendation was taken to the White House by the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen.

"Hillary Rodham Clinton is the obvious inspiration, but this is Hillary with a human face," she wrote. During the Cold War, reporters would suggest a kinder, gentler Marxist regime was "communism with a human face."

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

WASHINGTON — WHEN Willie Nelson invites you to get high with him on his bus, you go. The man is the patron saint of pot, after all, and I’m the poster girl for bad pot trips. It seemed like a match made in hash heaven. When Nelson sang at the 9:30 club in D.C. one recent night, I ventured onto the Honeysuckle Rose, as his tour bus and home-away-from-home is called. I was feeling pretty shy about meeting him. The 81-year-old Redheaded Stranger is an icon, one of America’s top songwriters and, as Rolling Stone said, “a hippie’s hippie and

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

The United Nations Climate Summit will begin in New York this Tuesday, but environmental activists didn’t wait. All day Sunday, they filled the streets of Manhattan for a march that featured Al Gore, New York City mayor Bill de Blasio, and various Hollywood actors. But they certainly didn’t act like a movement that was winning. There was a tone of fatalism in the comments of many with whom I spoke; they despair that the kind of radical change they advocate probably won’t result from the normal democratic process. It’s no surprise then that the rhetoric of climate-change activists has become increasingly

Three and a half months have come and gone and the Pentagon has offered no clarity on what happened to alleged Army deserter and Taliban collaborator Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Fellow soldiers and other critics fear the military’s now-delayed investigation is shaping up to be a whitewash. The case has become a political powder keg for President Obama. Since he traded five imprisoned Taliban leaders for Bergdahl, the US Government Accountability Office has declared the swap illegal, and nearly two dozen House Democrats have joined Republicans in officially condemning the move for making “Americans less safe.”

The man who jumped the White House railing Sept. 19 deserves the right to live in President Barack Obama’s home, just as the president is allowing hundreds of thousands of border-jumping Central Americans to live in Americans’ homeland, says a new tongue-in-cheek petition posted at the White House website. “We urge President Obama to immediately and publicly recognize that Mr. Omar J. Gonzalez, an oppressed migrant, was merely looking for a better life when he entered the White House after going over the classist, divisive and needless fence,” says the petition, which was authored by D.A. King, founder of the Georgia-based

When Anthony Weiner’s mayoral campaign imploded last year amid new sexting revelations, the fallout buffeted his wife, longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin. Clinton’s inner circle was furious with Weiner, and Abedin’s role with Hillary was said to be in doubt. “Huma has a choice to make,” New York magazine quoted a “close associate” of Abedin’s as saying. “Does she go with Anthony, or does she go with Hillary?” The magazine described Abedin as “traumatized” by the prospect of leaving the inner sanctum. One year later, Abedin’s marriage to Weiner appears intact, and her role in Hillary’s camp is secure. As Clinton’s personal chief

Domestic violence, also known as intimate partner violence, is defined as the physical, sexual or psychological harm caused by the current or former intimate partner. Since the 1970s, concern regarding the issue began in response to the women´s movement. Most of the traditional studies looked at the abuse women faced from men in heterosexual relationships. But, the latest study by Northwestern Medicine scientists found that domestic violence is more common among same-sex couples and excess stress raises the risk of this abuse. On analyzing the previous studies together, it was observed that domestic violence affected
