Pope Francis has donated $500,000 to help migrants with food, lodging etc

Pope Francis has donated 500,000 dollars to help migrants in Mexico, offering assistance to local projects that provide food, lodging and basic necessities. The funds will be distributed among 27 projects promoted by 16 Mexican dioceses and religious congregations. ’All these people were stranded, unable to enter the United States, without a home or livelihood,’ the Vatican said in a statement.

Send them to the Vatican! He loves migrants so much he should welcome them into his own country. Worse pope ever.

I love how they are "stranded" because they cannot enter the US. They are not and were never stranded and have no right to enter any country other than their own. They need to go home and fix their own countries and/or apply to enter the US legally.

Like any of the money will actually reach them? Fund the problem as long as the problem stays away from your doorstep eh?

This guy is the most disgusting excuse for a pope in history. Send the aid to their country of origin. Help them help themselves. Don't encourage them to be criminals. What a backwards ass pope.

To encourage it or to stop it? Confusing.

I have a strange inkling that the media is twisting what is generally considered a kind act into a political insult towards Trump. I really don't care enough to find out his original intention. But there are plenty of people within those caravans that genuinely need help, and sending assistance is the Christian thing to do. That doesnt mean the Pope wants to send a backhanded message to the US president when Trump has never said a bad thing about those who really do need help. He's just more concerned about keeping his people safe from the not so honest migrants. Why's everything gotta be so one sided?

whoever receives the donation should buy every single person a ticket to the Vatican with directions to his doorstep, see how fast he's called out on his bullshit

but what about Notre Dame or donating the money to victims of grooming gangs especially the children who will never be able to reclaim their innocence that was taken from them?

Not a smart move in all honesty we shouldn't further encourage this.

What does he mean by "migrants"? These people are not "migrants". They are just people from other countries walking around in their own countries and near by countries. They are people hoping to become illegal aliens with in the borders of the United States. But at no time are they migrants. Calling them migrants literally makes no sense at all. It is completely inaccurate. We truly are living in "Idiocracy".

well, given that evangelicals have pretty much thrown the moral baby out with the bathwater just to get trump elected and target abortion, christianity is no longer anything close to what it was before, and the Pope is trying new things (except for condemning peodos who work for him)

That’s great, but also wish wealthy people would donate/ create organizations to help rebuild infrastructure that sets up trading for goods and services in those poorer countries. America and other developed nations can only sustain a certain number influx of people. The billions of poor people need to be elevated where they live if we really want to help.

If the Demwits didn't piss away 30 million on that witch-hunt, those poor folks could be eating well. But that's what they do, tax the piss outta people, & piss the money away !

As long as this pope continues to enable these migrants to violate our countries' borders and security, I do not regret leaving the Catholic Church

Charity is good. And good on the Pope for want to help those less fortunate. But I think these people need a different kind of help. Throwing money at people or problems doesn't always solve the issue. At times it worsens it. The US and other countries have been sending aid to Africa for decades. While it may have helped. I don't see Africa turning into the promised Wakanda.
