Pope Pushes Open Borders: God Will Destroy ‘Walls’ Between Nations
Pontiff attacks borders lieneing them to 'closed doors' to secure wealth
Pope Francis said that walls between nations cannot endure because God will tear them down in the end.
In a continuing push for 'open borders,' the Pontiff seemed to fire a thinly veiled jab at President Donald Trump's wall, suggesting that walls are 'closed doors' to secure wealth.
“We can build any number of walls and close our doors in the vain effort to feel secure in our wealth, at the expense of those left outside. It will not be that way forever,” the pope said.
“The ‘day of the Lord,’ as described by the prophets, will destroy the barriers created between nations and replace the arrogance of the few with the solidarity of many,” Francis added.
“The marginalization painfully experienced by millions of persons cannot go on for long. Their cry is growing louder and embraces the entire earth,” he said.
Francis focused on the growing inequality between the wealthy and the poor.
“The inequitable distribution of wealth created a significant number of poor people, whose condition appeared all the more dramatic in comparison with the wealth attained by a privileged few,” he wrote.
“The economic crisis has not prevented large groups of people from accumulating fortunes that often appear all the more incongruous when, in the streets of our cities, we daily encounter great numbers of the poor who lack the bare necessities of life and are at times harassed and exploited,” he said.
The pope also painted migrants as the victims of exploitation.

There are “millions of immigrants who fall victim to any number of concealed interests, often exploited for political advantage, and are refused solidarity and equality,” the pope stated.
In April, during a gathering in the Vatican, Francis said that "migrants are those who always bring us riches."
The head of the Catholic Church said that citizens must learn to embrace mass-immigration as it brings the wealth of a multicultural and multi-ethnic world.
“Let us thank God for a multi-ethnic and multicultural society,” Francis told the audience from the San Carlo school of Milan gathered in the Vatican Saturday, “because dialogue among cultures, persons, and ethnicities is richness.”
Last month, Francis attacked President Donald Trump over his push to build a wall along the US Southern Border, slamming the move as "cruel" and "very sad."
The head of the Catholic Church claims he would blast the US president to his face, saying he would confront Trump and tell him the wall will make him a "prisoner."
