EWTN Catholic Q&A
Pope Francis
Question from Andrea on 05-07-2019:

Dear Judy, I am totally disgusted by this pope. Why did he give $500,000 to people who are illegal invaders? Where does this money come from? Unless one lives in a boarder state, there is no imagining the problems caused by illegals and that is what they are. NOT migrants. There are camps all along the borders housing and feeding people who want nothing more than to get on welfare. Taxpayers pay for this. The money doesn't fall out of the sky.To those of you who say we should let them in in, I ask, Do you lock your home and car? MS13 is alive and well here, our hospitals are full of people who can't pay, and are schools have the same problems. Yet, I have to pay when I need hospital services and pay school taxes. We can't pay for the world. And why is it okay for them to fornicate and have multiple kids with men/women and the church accepts them because they are poor but other church members have to follow the church? Where is their sexual self control? I have traveled to Europe and can tell you it is a mess due to "immigration". Pope Frances is a fraud and a globalist. I and many other Catholics are fed up with his political agenda. I am barely a Catholic at this point.

Vatican News states: Pope Francis has donated 500,000 dollars to assist migrants in Mexico. The funds, from the Peterís 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.

These immigrants are NOT in the United States, the Pope is helping the various dioceses in Mexico.
