Pope Francis and the Catholic Church are now funding the migrants approaching the U.S. southern border while the Vatican scoffs at America’s border laws.

“Pope Francis has donated 500,000 dollars to assist migrants in Mexico. The funds, from the Peter’s Pence collections, will be distributed among 27 projects promoted by sixteen Mexican dioceses and religious congregations, which requested assistance in continuing to provide food, lodging, and basic necessities to the migrants,” according to Vatican News. 

Peter’s Pence is a Catholic organization that collects and distributes donations. It is located in Vatican City. The charity scoffed at the United States for not allowing hordes of migrants to storm its borders.

“In recent months, thousands of migrants have arrived in Mexico, having travelled more than 4,000 kilometres on foot and with makeshift vehicles from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala,” the group said. “Men and women, often with young children, flee poverty and violence, hoping for a better future in the United States. However, the US border remains closed to them.”...
International law requires that refugees seek asylum in the nearest safe country to their home country. These economic migrants are already in the nearest safe country - that is, Mexico.
It is duplicitous and utter BS for so-called religious charities to advocate for illegal invasion into America.
