Pope Francis has been pushing the Catholic Church uncomfortably to the Left since taking power.
On many issues, he has sided with the radical Left instead of Catholic teachings.
And what Pope Francis’ Vatican just said about immigration will infuriate any Trump-supporting Catholic.
Since the start of President Donald Trump’s campaign for President, Pope Francis has made statements against Trump that have infuriated Trump-supporting Catholics.
Most infamously, he blasted Trump’s plan to build a wall on the border, while ignoring the fact that there is a massive wall around the Vatican where he resides.
After his attack, Francis was forced to tacitly apologize to Trump due to backlash.
But it did not stop him from later criticisms, like when he called Trump’s policy of securing the border “cruel.”
And it hasn’t stopped him from pushing further left-wing policies.
Most recently, his Vatican has come out with a statement declaring that coronavirus proves that immigrants are “essential,” while not specifying whether they mean “legal” or “illegal.”
Cardinal Michael Czerny, who has led the Vatican’s Migrants and Refugees Office since 2017, made the statement in an interview with Catholic News Agency.
He claims that illegal immigrants are the most valuable people in society during this crisis.
“Who are the orderlies and the cleaning people and who are the support staff in the hospitals? Who are the people who are picking the fruit and vegetables that we really do need to receive?” he asked.
“Who are the people who are taking care of our elderly or challenged people or other people who need support and care?” he continued. “Many, many, many of them are people in these categories [of migrant or refugee], who are here doing the work because it’s the work we need.”
He acts as though illegal immigrants, who he claims to have a lot of reverence for, are only good for doing tasks so menial that nobody else would do.
He ignores the fact that illegal immigrants put a massive strain on economies, and cost many billions more than they produce.
Czerny doesn’t seem to care that these illegal immigrants take jobs that Americans would be more than happy to work, along with devaluing American labor, which hurts all workers in their pocketbook.
If the Vatican truly wanted to help these people, they would assist in cleaning up their own countries, instead of sending them to flood more developed countries.
Do you think the Vatican should stop pushing left-wing agendas?
