Pope Francis has created multiple controversies with his liberal activism on the immigration issue.
The Holy Father has called out Donald Trump and nationalists on numerous occasions in defense of open borders and mass migration.
But in a new interview, what the Pope said about Barack Obama will leave you speechless.
Pro-open borders leaders across the globe ganged up on Donald Trump because the President kept his commitment to the American people to secure the nation’s borders and protect its citizens from the scourge of illegal immigration.
Pope Francis was among those figures who spoke out against the President enforcing American law.
“A person’s dignity does not depend on them being a citizen, a migrant, or a refugee. Saving the life of someone fleeing war and poverty is an act of humanity. #WithRefugees”
The leader of the Catholic Church followed that up with another pro-refugee message:
“A person’s dignity does not depend on them being a citizen, a migrant, or a refugee. Saving the We encounter Jesus in those who are poor, rejected, or refugees. Do not let fear get in the way of welcoming our neighbour in need. #WithRefugeese of someone fleeing war and poverty is an act of humanity. #WithRefugees”
So when the Pope spoke with Reuters, the reporter expected him to keep dumping on Donald Trump.
But that isn’t what happened.
Instead, Pope Francis singled out Barack Obama.
Francis pointed out that the Obama administration also detained children:
“During the Obama years I celebrated Mass in Ciudad Juárez while on the other side of the border 50 bishops concelebrated and in the stadium there were many people. The problem already existed there. It’s not just an issue with Trump but goes back to prior governments.”
The much circulated photos of illegal alien children in dog cages was taken in 2014, when Barack Obama was President.
And the Associated Press ran a story – where they left Obama’s name and the year the allegations took place out of the headline – about how illegal alien children claimed they were abused in 2016.
The Obama administration was rife with scandal.
And chief among the problems plaguing America during his tenure was his encouraging a flood of illegal alien minors to swarm across America’s Southern border.
Donald Trump is attempting to clean up that mess.
He is not the first President to deal with the issue of illegal immigration.
But to watch the so-called “mainstream” media, you would think Trump originated the issue of children crossing the border.
Yet even Pope Francis – usually a reliable Trump critic – wouldn’t even take the so-called “mainstream” media’s bait.
