Pope Francis Asks for Compassion Toward Immigrants

Pope Francis delivered pro-immigrant messages during his first official trip outside Rome as he urged the public to show compassion for immigrants. Pope Francis denounced the “globalization of indifference” to migrants, calling their suffering “a painful thorn in my heart.”

Pope Francis argues that sovereign nations and their citizens have the responsibility to protect those who come to their countries to pursue better lives for their families and themselves. But in the U.S., our current broken immigration system has separated many families.

During his life, Pope Francis has shown great compassion toward immigrants and we should all follow his example.
