Pope Francis Urged European Countries To ‘Tear Down’ Migrant Fences
The Pope should tear down his wall first…
Pope Francis urged European countries to tear down fences meant to keep migrants out, and instead commit to “an open and multicultural society.”
Francis made the remarks Friday during his acceptance speech in Rome for receiving the Charlemagne Prize of Aachen for his services to Europe. Speaking in front of some the European Union’s leaders, the pontiff took the opportunity to once again denounce some countries’ handling of the crisis.
“I dream of a Europe where being a migrant is not a crime but a summons to greater commitment on behalf of the dignity of every human being,” he said. “Europe should be an open and multicultural society, welcoming refugees and helping young people start a family by offering adequate job opportunities.” More
