Pope Francis slammed politicians who spread fear of immigrants, calling on them to stop instigating violence and racism and instead adopt “practical measures” to welcome immigrants into their countries.

Francis wrote in a message titled “Migrants and Refugees: Men and Women in Search of Peace,” which was sent to heads of state and government, that fear of immigrants “demeans the human dignity due to all as sons and daughters of God," according to Reuters.

“Those who, for what may be political reasons, foment fear of migrants instead of building peace are sowing violence, racial discrimination and xenophobia, which are matters of great worry for all those concerned about the safety of every human being,” he wrote.

The pope also said that more wealthy countries have to be compassionate toward migrants fleeing natural disasters, war, discrimination, poverty and numerous other issues.

Francis said that while immigrants can “compound numerous existing problems,” leaders have to find ways to integrate them into their countries.

The Pope has plenty of "wealth"-how much is willing to kick in?

The only violence I have seen "instigated" is by the refusegees themselves.

I heard on the news today that ISIS is targeting NYC, London and THE VATICAN!! I wonder what Pope Francis will say when the hordes climb over their walls. He should stick his nose out of other people's business.
