The Pope Just Jumped In!

The Pope criticized the Trump Administration for its border policies and called the separation of families “immoral.”

As reported by

(Reuters) - Pope Francis has criticized the Trump administration's policy of separating migrant families at the Mexican border, saying populism is not the answer to the world's immigration problems.

Speaking to Reuters, the Pope said he supported recent statements by U.S. Catholic bishops who called the separation of children from their parents "contrary to our Catholic values" and "immoral".

"It's not easy, but populism is not the solution," Francis said on Sunday night.

In a rare, wide-ranging interview, the pope said he was optimistic about talks that may lead to a historic agreement over the appointment of bishops in China, and said he may accept more bishops' resignations over a sexual abuse scandal in Chile.

Reflecting at his Vatican residence on his five years as pope, he defended his leadership of the Roman Catholic Church against criticism by conservatives inside and outside the Church who say his interpretation of its teachings is too liberal.

He also said he wanted to appoint more women to top positions in the Vatican administration.

There has been an uproar by the left and the media demonizing the Trump Administration for enforcing laws that are already in the books at the border. These laws are ultimately mean to help children from abuse from smugglers and other dangers.

I am a cactholic and go to daily Mass. It is hard to disagree with our pope but i have too. President Trump is reinforcing the law. Lets talk about abortion and the way the liberals feel about that. Nancy Pelosi went to a Catholic college in washington d c. People that come here illegally should be sent back.
