Pope Francis again speaks against the border security through the wall-building.
Francis has now warned the non-welcoming countries those who avoid welcoming the migrants.
He says that the ones who do so will soon become “prisoners.” From Francis’s statement, it is evident that he speaks against border security yet again.
The builders of the walls regardless of whether they are bricksor razor wires will nevertheless become prisoners. According to what Francis has admitted, he wept after the Spanish journalist displayed him the concertina wire piece from the North African enclave bordering Morocco.
The problem of migration has let one government get a ‘potato’ in the hand. However, Francis thinks that it must get resolved as quickly as possible and not with razor wire but with humanity.
The pope’s statement also hinted at the Moroccan leaders while he states that social justice will eventually correct the economic imbalances of the entire world.
This happens to be the second time of the year when Pope Francis is seen emphatically denouncing the walls for the use of border security. It additionally feels like the running theme throughout the pontificate of the pope.
He also states that the migrants’ fears would make people crazy. This statement has been marked when he was returning from the trip to Panama in the month of January.
His statement also marks him as an outspoken critic of the stance of Donald Trump on the immigration ever since he initially announced the candidacy.
During 2016’s presidential campaign, Francis showed hostility to candidates as he promised a pro-religious and pro-life agenda than he did to Clinton. The pope, at a point, suggests that Trump has not even been a real Christian owing to the desire of the building of the border walls.
According to what the pope states, someone who thinks about building the walls and not about building the bridges is not a Christian. He also adds that this isn’t in ‘Gospel’.
Pope Francis also focused on the nation’s needs for fostering the virtue of welcoming the strangers or even risking own demise.
Welcoming a stranger is easier than being welcomed. However, the pope says that you would require doing both the work. You must also help the strangers and nation the possibility to have everything. You should always know the ways of welcoming a ‘foreigner’.
