Is The Pope Financing The Migrant Caravans?

It sounds crazy but it may not actually be that crazy. According to the Vatican, Pope Francis sent $500k to assist migrants in the caravans at the US-Mexico border. This comes at a time where most officials inside the U.S. acknowledge that there is a major crisis at the border.

More below:

The Pope used money from the "Peter's Pence collections" to assist the migrants at the border. What's the motive here? Is it to help the migrants and keep them safe at the border? Is it to simply keep them at the border?

“The Catholic Church hosts thousands of them in hotels within the dioceses or religious congregations, providing basic necessities, from housing to clothing,”

One has to wonder why the Pope wouldn't just send that money to their hometowns and assist them there. After all, not all of these folks are escaping violence or oppression. Many are just looking to come to the U.S., illegally and quickly, instead of waiting in line.

The president has repeatedly floated the idea of closing certain parts of the southern border in order to stem what he described previously as an “attempted invasion of illegals.

President Trump may be onto something here. We are seeing massive caravans of illegals showing up at our border and, just recently, attack our Border Patrol agents.

U.S. officials said they arrested or denied entry to more than 103,000 people along the border with Mexico in March, more than twice as many as the same period in 2018.

Trump has pushed this issue and recognized the seriousness of the problem from the beginning of his campaign. Republicans didn't act for safety when they had the power and it seems democrats won't act in defense our citizens either. The president could sure use a little help from the members of Congress to ensure the safety of the citizens of the U.S. Will he get it?

  1. This pope is a socialist and a nut. He has no business doing that. He’s not helping them.
    Maybe he’ll catch a cold soon.

    1. This pope is a freaking libtard. He hates the US because we are successful and the rest of the world is a disaster. I am not a Catholic so l say he can kiss my Baptist ass.

  2. Close the boarder and build the wall. Talk to the Pope and see what his plans are and why he is funding this plight.

  3. Of course — this mixed up pope is one of the liberal influences that thinks the U.S. is grand central station for the world, and its citizenry does not deserve sovereignty — something even his little papal state has, complete with a wall. He is a flaming hypocrite. No wonder there is the real possibility of schism of the American Catholic Church. This leftist is no holy father, but a scheming politician aligned with the likes of Obama.

  4. #1 Is this creditable reporting? #2 Is it possible, if there was money sent by the Pope could it have simply been to help care for these thousands of needy people at our border…,water,blankets,and diapers?To help reduce the burden for Mexico?
    I need verified facts to make a descision about this reporting.
    If anything by now with all the biased and false reporting these days,we should have all learned not to jump to conclusions.

  5. If this report is true that the Pope sent $500,000 to fund migrant caravans, I do not appreciate that my donations to my Catholic Church are being dispersed through Peter’s Pence or whatever means to fund illegal migrants. We already have too many illegal immigrants in the US collecting paychecks!

  6. The popes a dope. We should send all the illegals to Vatican City. They have a wall around the city so they wouldn’t be able to escape

  7. This is why I will not give the Catholic church “one more dollar” Sunday basket will receive only enough to pay for a/c, etc.
    Pope is a Marxis and socialist, period and trying to destroy the USA and is in league with the democrates wanting a communist country.

  8. The Pope is doing what Jesus would do. All u hypocrites r calling this great man names. You r all a bunch of morons. Christ who ever gives shall receive. The Pope is doing exactly what he should b doing.


  9. How dare this pope use parishioners money to make political statements. Who does this bozo think he is. Every Catholic out there should be pi**ed right off. This is not what the Peter’s Pence collection is meant for. I as a Catholic will have to review whether or not I will continue giving to Sunday collections, and whether or not it’s time for me to move on to another faith, less interested in politics and political interest groups, and more interested in the concept of religiosity and God. Sadly it is the good people of individual churches that are hurt the most by this chest-thumping pope.
