What Pope Francis’ Vatican said about immigration will infuriate any Trump-supporting Catholic

65

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?

  2. Today’s immigrants are escapists desperados and fugitives from the Law they grew up with and that is PUSHING DRUGS. They could have stood their ground in their own countries doing the World true service. Instead they are a disgrace to the Lands that spawned them. Here they are A DISGACE TO THE HUMAN RACE. America today is about standing your ground. They turn the clock back in our history necessitating a form of segregation to accommodate them making segregated rules for them every step they take to get comfortable here. Total hypocrisy.

  3. Of course a Godless man who is the head of a Godless religion would advocate for breaking federal immigration law. No surprise there.

  4. Just because he was chosen Our Pope doesn’t mean all Catholics agree with his views. It took the Church alot of years to learn that just giving someone a fish won’t feed them for life but teach them how to fish will. The Pope needs to be reminded how his country and many of the surrounding South American regimes don’t help their citizens-they control them causing starvation and extreme poverty.

  5. This Pope is a man first. Best he read what Saint Thomas Aquinas said about immigration before he pontificates.

  6. I was raised Roman Catholic but cannot support this man as Pope. His position is NOT to be political but to be a leader in Christlike values which he seems lacking in.

  7. The Pope is trying to lay the world’s problem at our feet. The left is the same party pushing abortions and same sex marriage. We may be Catholics and God Fearing people but Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely

  8. This Pope is purely political! Why doesn’t he preach these Third World Countries Political Class to stop suppressing their citizens! But no, he decides to attack America because they can’t and won’t take in the World’s poor! This Marxist Pope isin cahoots with the Left!!

  9. “Immigrants” are people who have gone through proper channels to become American citizens. People crossing the border without following our laws are NOT ‘immigrants, but criminals who have disregarded our laws – are in the vernacular: “border jumpers”, and should be sent back immediately, not “apprehended”, released in our country and given a court hearing date.

  10. The pope has become political hack in a funny suit.
    You only care about the illegals, not those who they harm. You are no christian…

  11. Does the Vatican allow illegal immigrants to live in the Vatican Walls and do they feed, house, school and give them medical? Perhaps Trump whould have a hugh plane waiting at the border to fly them directly to the Vatican and the Pope can care for them himself. He could deem that, couldn’t he? Some how don’t think the Cardinals would agree with that plan. He lives his life as a hypocrite these days.

  12. At the rate this Pope is leading to the left – I am really contemplating leaving the Catholic Church and becoming and Episcopalian – same beliefs but no allegiance to the Pope. There are concepts out that he will be the last Pope.

  13. I am also a life time roman catholic,(85),,and I have a very hard time trying to understand what this pope really represents,,to date I have not heard this pope give any comments and or advice to left wing dummocrat POLISI about killing UNBORN CHILDREN,,THAT IS MURDER there is no other name for it,,,

  14. Pope deserves death, calling himself God, saying he is the big F Father. Lucifer will get death, wanting to be like God without the Father Spirit in him. The Pope is a blasphemer. The Pope has no biblical truth in him. The Pope, and other catholic church leaders, have slain children in the Vatican, in rituals.

  15. I am 72 years old and raised Catholic — including Catholic schools. It is interesting that my closest friends are also Catholic — going to Mass every week, etc. When the Cardinal came to our church a few months ago and told people to sign-up and donate hundreds (preferably thousands) of dollars over the coming year for Frank’s insane spending goals. Most of the parishioners actually laughed and put down the forms. All this guy wants to do is to have Americans give away all their money to those in foreign countries. Guess he never learned that charity begins at home. I find that most Catholics feel that Frank of Rome is more poop than Pope and his Cardinal in Chicago is his butt kisser.

  16. This pope makes me question whether bears poop in the woods either.

    Does this mean he has opened the Vatican to Mid-eastern Refugees so they can, in an ecumenical way turn St Peter’s into a Mosque?

  17. In order to exist as a nation borders are required same as in order to exist in one’s home locks are required.

  18. HOW ABOUT WE JUST SEND HIM ALL OUR ILLEGAL ALIENS AND ILLEGAL ALIEN CRIMINALS FROM OUR PRISONS.. LET HIM TAKE CARE OF THEM AND DEAL WITH THEM… Funny how he is protected by a wall and trying to tell us we should not be protected as a country.. HE IS DISGUSTING!!! NEEDS TO KEEP HIS REMARKS TO HIMSELF… I DON’T SEE HIM FORKING OVER MONEY TO SUPPORT THE ILLEGAL ALIENS WITH…

  19. Wow that’s as bad and condescending poor choice words as Biden had used .
    The majority of those seeking to come here are ruthless lazy criminals sent here by our enemies trying to destabilize our country in all areas . They are bringing their draconian way of thinking and want to kept their own laws and don’t want to assimilate in our society . The problem here it’s that immigration laws and the rule of our laws are being trampled over by our bleeding hearts politicians and even the Vatican to enhance their own agenda of destabilizing the country . The Holy Father is entitled to his own opinion but it’s wrong for him to voiced them and expecting us Catholic to obey them. When he speaks of matters of spirituality he is considered infallible (cathedra)
    When he’s speaking of political opinions he’s just another man just like us imperfect voicing what he thinks is good for the illegal immigrants and not taking into consideration the rest of the population at large . That’s what his heart desires but as always when we are rash and led by our own emotions we err . When he and all the rest that are living behind great walls with security get their walls down then they can talk . Don’t tell me what to do – show me what are you going to do . The church specially the Vatican is rich enough to take care that problem . I was waiting for the Vatican to send checks to all Catholics around the world .

  20. When is he going to tear down that wall and be sure to let all immigrants in… And be sure to give them ALL Free Medical, Free Welfare, Free Everything that he has!!!

  21. I too believe Pope Francis is a bad Pope. Me and my Catholic friends are very cautious of him. He is too liberal and too compromising in his positions regarding homosexuality and Muslims. I think he should speak out against abortion and you don’t hear him say anything about Biden or Pelosi who claim to be Catholic and support abortion.

  22. My Catholic Holy Bible 1989-1990 edition has footnotes which are very helpful in understanding what is meant by various bible passages. Take Mt 25, 31-46:

    Mathew 25; 31-46 in my Catholic bible has a footnote important to the understanding and meaning of these verses, particularly the verse – “For I was hungry and you gave me food, thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me….” (which the U.S. bishops are using in support of their push for “comprehensive immigration reform”). The Catholic scholars write in the footnote: “The criterion of judgment will be the deeds of mercy that have been done for the LEAST BROTHERS (their emphasis of v. 40 ). A difficult and important question is the identification of these ‘least brothers.’ Are they all people who have suffered hunger, thirst, etc. (v 35,36) or a particular group of such sufferers?…It seems that the stronger case can be made for the view that in the evangelist’s sense the sufferers are Christians, probably Christian missionaries whose sufferings were brought upon them by their preaching of the gospel. The criterion of judgment for ALL THE NATIONS (their emphasis) is their treatment of those who have borne to the world the message of Jesus, and this means ultimately their acceptance or rejection of Jesus, himself; cf 10, 40, ‘Whoever receives you, receives me.'”

    It is important to not only site the bible chapter and verse, but especially the Church’s footnotes that bring meaning and understanding to what that chapter and verse says. With that in mind, where, or where, please tell me my Catholic Democrat brothers and sisters, does Jesus direct his disciples to go get government to do what He directed them to do themselves? No government or politician is going to get into heaven because he confiscated other people’s money to give it to the poor, which by the way, is a sin against “coveting thy neighbors’ goods.”

  24. Jesus loves the illegal immigrants! Every minute of the day he places his hand on their shoulder and tells them “Go and Sin No More….Go [to the other side of the border] and sin no more….leave your life of the mortal sin that is illegal immigration. Render onto Caesar, the things that are Caesars’s. Obey the law, it is a gift from God. If you obey, then you will be saved from everlasting damnation, because of God’s infinite mercy calling for repentance.” Most illegal immigrants do not listen to the voice of Jesus, as they still are listening to the voice of satan who tempted them to live a life of mortal sin to begin with. When did Jesus say “Go break the law, God will wink a blind eye, because you are poor.” Surely satan tells people that: Certainly not Jesus!

  25. The Vatican does not have wall surrounding it. It is open in front and you can walk right into St.Peter’s. Also from the street you can walk directly into the visitor’s entrance to start tours. The writer apparently has never been to the Vatican. Second point. After reading all the comments from Catholics and maybe other Christians, it seems to me that if Jesus would return he would throw up all over for not being true Christians.
    Everybody stay healthy.

  26. Tear down your wall first and then maybe will talk about our wall. Mat 7:4  Or how will you say to your brother, Let me pull the splinter out of your eye; and, behold, a beam is in your own eye? 
    Mat 7:5  Hypocrite!

  27. I am a practicing Catholic, and the only time I am required to believe in the Pope’s message is when he speaks Ex Cathedra. He can as a human being, which we all are and is not perfect! We all sin due to the fall of our first parents. I don’t support anyone’s derogatory comments that smack of unintelligent statements. Evil exists and we should all pray and work to not let it overcome us. God bless!

  28. What many don’t know is that the one world government group pushes “open borders” for every nation in the world, especially the U. S. An open border policy would let a pandemic of illegal aliens into the U. S. that know nothing about what the U. S. Constitution means to us. Sadly, the Pope is a member of this organization, which , to me, is an abominable thought on its own since I am a catholic. Amazingly other members of this group include, out of 300, Bill Clinton, George HW Bush and some other very important political and non-political people that you’d recognize, including Bill Gates and Warren Buffet.

    They propose forcibly reducing the world population to about 1 Billion, elimination of most farm animals, euthanasia for the terminally ill or very old, free sex and no medication except approved by both your doctor and a regional controller. The courts will become courts of punishments, not courts of justice.
    Everyone just has to study up on this and act accordingly. This is a road from which there is no return.

  29. You are correct – I’ve never been. However the Vatican is considered a country. I will ask again-do they accept illegal immigrants and house, feed, provide medical and schooling. The answer is no it doesn’t and this Pope could open up it’s “unseen walls” and yes, they are enforced and yes he has the power and the money to do so. Why doesn’t he. As for Catholics not all embracing the man’s views. Your views are your views, my views are mine. As for feeding the hungry and etc.-we give millions to these countries where these people are coming from. They can come to this country-they have to follow our immigration laws to do that. The Pope has much power and resources-I don’t see the Vatican opening it’s resources to the needy and following what he preaches. Again-just because he’s been chosen Pope doesn’t mean he isn’t infallible. It took the church a long time to figure out-give a person a fish-he eats one meal. Teach a person to fish, he eats for a lifetime. Many of our Parishes having twinning parishes in another country. We help them drill wells, buy farm animals and seed, build schools & etc. All in the name of Christ. So be careful who YOU judge.;

  30. We already allow many, many newcomers every year LEGALLY. The hard truth is, there is no number that will be high enough to satisfy the weak-minded liberals. They don’t have opinions….they just find out what normal people think, and move far to the left of that. There is no reasoning with them. They just have to be defeated, by any means necessary.

  31. I am of Catholic faith a nd this Pope is a disgrace. Over time the Vatican has shown it can be as corrupt any government and takes sides only for financial motives. They have more capital/net worth then many countries. If they are so worried about immigrants then st them to open their borders to receive them all so they can take care of them. Even better why aren’t they taking any actions against the corrupt dictators whose actions are causing all these people to leave their countries. The only thing the Corona virus has done is to increase the numbers of the people who want refuge from the corrupt dictatorships.

  32. God not only supports borders, He gave His people borders. When He brought them into the Promised Land did He tell them to just go and settle wherever they wanted? NO. He allotted land to each tribe for them to live. What part of illegal do dems not understand??? They are breaking our laws just by coming in here and have no business being here. It’s very simple. Either come here legally or not at all. But dems have no morals and do not care about right and wrong

  33. I’m Catholic and I believe this man is not the true pope…I believe the pope would love us all equally, This man does not! I was watching when Pope Francis hurried away a woman who appeared desperate for a word with the man…The pope would be patient, this man smacked away the woman who was desperate for his attention… I felt both sorry and appalled by the treatment given to this woman…could be I expected too much from the duties of a Pope…

  34. “God instructed Nehemiah to build a wall around Jerusalem to protect its citizens from enemy attack.” This so-called pope thinks he’s better than God. He needs to go.

  35. Isn’t Francis a girls name. Watch soon he will be outed as a child molester. Happens all the time

  36. @Marty…..exactly. Follow the laws of the land which illegals are not doing and it’s the only thing we ask of them, and Dr. Turek we are to oppose evil.

  37. the roman catholic cult is an abomination to GOD. PAGANISIM MIXED IN WITH CHRISTIANITY
    REPENT LOST ROAMN CATHOLIC BAPTISIM CANNOT SAVE, THE SACRAMENTS CANNNOT SAVE
    PRAYING THE PAGAN ROSARY BEADS CANNOT SAVE, CONFESSING YOUR SINS TO A HOMOSEXUAL
    PRIEST WILL NOT SAVE, THE MASS WILL NOT SAVE, YOUR GOOD WORKS WILL NOT SAVE, THE BIBLE
    SAYS TO REPENT AND BOW TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST ALONE AS YOUR PERSONAL SAVIOUR
    JOHN3-3 JESUS TOLD NICODEMUS YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN OR YOU CANNOT ENTER THE KINGDOM
    OF GOD.acts 4-12 salvation is found in no other name there is no other name given heaven given among
    men whereby we must be saved. repent there is no purgatory, heaven or hell come out of the cult
    be truly born again.

  38. the pope has no say in anything he is a fake the catholic religion is false why do you think it is called the ROMAN catholic church

  39. if you are catholic you are being lied to read the bible not the catholic bible the real one the catholic bible is true but incomplete it was put assembled my men in the latter days of the roman empire why do you think it is called the roman catholic church back then rome thought well can not beat em so lets join em they just switched over their gods called them saints made prayers to each and everyone of them if you really know god and the bible then you know that you can not pray to anyone except Jesuss he said the only way to the father is threw me not mary not joe not nick but me the people asked him how do we pray he said a prayer called the our father and that the only one if you pray to anyone but Jesuss i[ will fall on deaf ears PS. forgive my spelling

  40. Upon my soul!😆Patty B you are a hoot and a holler!!!(and you are right!).Glad to see most Catholics and Christians getit.I would add if Jesus was a Jew (and a practicing Jew),just what”religion “ did he found?God is Creator and King of all! He gave us the word to live and die by (as evidenced by His sacrifice on the cross).and the free will to use it to bring us back to Him in the eternity.He didn’t give us denominationalism and division that came from mankind and the usurper.

  41. Stop funding catholic churches and charities and hit this awful pope and his cronies where it hurts, I agree with everyone and it is more about money than spiritual and as for the comment by Dr, Maxine Turek who uses her title as if she is above everyone intellectually(elite) and is most likely not a MD and really she should not mislead with title. I sure she is a far left liberal with her unintelligent comments.

  42. This pope has to realize that his name is not Jesus Christ. He has also changed many things in the Catholic church which goes against their own doctrine. He needs to stay “in his own land” and stop meddling in the business of heads of state. I was a Catholic for 35 years and am now a minister in a non-denominational protestant church. It saddens me that that this pope is so arrogant and constantly shows how uninformed he really is. Tear your own wall around the Vatican and leave our southern wall alone. I don’t see you supporting these illegals, feeding them, giving them jobs, providing housing at the expense of the American citizen.

  43. The Catholic church has never believed Christ’s crucifixion was enough to save your soul.
    Catholics have always believed you need more.

  44. I think that the Pope is right. We should welcome all Aliens, Legal or Illegal, they should be cared for and provided the basic necessities free of charge. I also think that the Pope and the Vatican should lead the way and they can start by tearing down the WALL that Surrounds the Vatican City and by allowing these Aliens to use St Peter’s Square as a makeshift housing area. I would be willing to bet that President Trump would be happy to send the Corps of Engineers over to Italy and set up a couple of dozen tent cities in the square to house all of the Aliens that the Church would welcome, along with a kitchen and food distribution area to feed them. Of course, this would be a bit expensive a comprehensive report by the Federation for Immigration Reform (FAIR) breaks down the cost of illegal immigration to U.S. taxpayers: $115.9 billion annually. Of course, you cannot measure charity in mear dollars we must be willing to do God’s Work and help our fellow man, ain’t that Right Pope Francis?
    An old American expresion goes something like this, “Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is.”

  45. I was raised Catholic. This pope, which spends more effort on politics, needs to realize that he is supposed to be about God and Christianity and not politics. I have not seen a study, but I would not be surprised that the number leaving the church has stepped up under his time.

  46. I was raised Catholic, a true believer until I studied WWll. The Catholic Church helped Nazis like Mengele escape to South America. Provided forged papers, means of escape and funding. Get off your pious, self righteous pulpit. You covered for Thousands of pedophiles for years. Help the survivors of your Priest’s disgusting habits. Pray for them and stay out of politics. I hardly think Jesus Christ was into politics
