The embattled Catholic Church, which has been plagued with problems involving pedophile priests and other clergy misbehaviors, has now joined scores of other shadowy Left-wing groups in providing funding for thousands of migrants who are attempting to invade the U.S. with bogus asylum claims.
According to Vatican News, Pope Francis has sent $500,000 “to assist migrants in Mexico.” Moreover, the press release noted, “the funds, from the Peter’s Pence collections, will be distributed among 27 projects promoted by sixteen Mexican dioceses and religious congregations, which requested assistance in continuing to provide food, lodging, and basic necessities to the migrants.”
According to a statement from Peter’s Pence, “In recent months, thousands of migrants have arrived in Mexico, having travelled [sp] more than 4,000 kilometers on foot and with makeshift vehicles from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala.
“Men and women, often with young children, flee poverty and violence, hoping for a better future in the United States. However, the US border remains closed to them,” the statement said.
The money will ostensibly be used to ‘assist’ more than 75,000 people who strode into Mexico last year in at least a half-dozen caravans.
“All these people were stranded, unable to enter the United States, without a home or livelihood”, the statement reads. “The Catholic Church hosts thousands of them in hotels within the dioceses or religious congregations, providing basic necessities, from housing to clothing.”
“Thanks to these projects”, the statement concludes, “and thanks to Christian charity and solidarity, the Mexican Bishops hope to be able to continue helping our migrant brothers and sisters.”
Meanwhile, other groups — in addition to the Mexican-based cartels — have been providing assistance to migrants as well, with the obvious intention of flooding the United States with wave after wave of alleged ‘refugees of violence’ at a time when President Donald Trump is attempting to secure our borders.
POTUS has been thwarted in his efforts by Democrats in Congress (and some Republicans), judicial activists in federal courts, and Left-wing administrators, mayors, city councils, and county commissions throughout the country that provide ‘sanctuary’ for people who have broken into our country.
And now, the Catholic Church is officially aiding and abetting the invasion with this massive infusion of cash.
You have to question the legitimacy of all of these caravans ‘suddenly’ cropping up just as the president was drilling down on immigration enforcement, as he promised he would during the 2016 campaign.
After all, the countries from which these migrants are ‘fleeing’ have been rampantly corrupt and violence-prone for decades; why now, then, are they suddenly uninhabitable?
