Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

Pope on migrants: “States have right to defend borders but should respect human rights”

2010-10-26

Arch. Antonio Maria Veglió
President, Pontifical Council for the Pastoral Care of Migrants and Itinerant People 
We are all children of God, every one of us has inalienable rights and every one of us as a human being must be respected. This is the foundation of how we should be inspired, and this is how the Church should inspire nations.”

The Pope devotes part of his message to the refugees and forced migrants.  He cautioned that if authorities of the host country are concerned about security and social cohesion, then they should respect immigrants rights and only then will a stable and harmonious coexistence be achieved.

According to the Pope authorities should also help displaced persons to find a place where they can live in peace.  They deserve this help because they often have to flee their own countries for political or religious reasons.  

In his message addressed to governments, citizens and immigrants alike, he calls for everyone to help in achieving integration of immigrants in an increasingly globalized world.
