Anthony Brian Logan - Pope Donates 500k To Migrant Caravan!

Pope Francis is sending a half million dollars to help migrants in Mexico who are trying to reach the United States, according to a report Saturday from Vatican News.

“Pope Francis has donated 500,000 dollars to assist migrants in Mexico. 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,” the report declares.

The Vatican noted in its statement that about 75,000 people from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala have been "stranded, unable to enter the United States, without a home or livelihood."

It added that the Catholic Church has hosted thousands of migrants in hotels within dioceses or congregations. It also said that 13 projects had already been approved to receive the donations.

Pope Francis has repeatedly spoken out about President Trump's policies and rhetoric on immigration. He said earlier this month that "those who build walls will become prisoners of the walls they put up," an apparent reference to Trump's long-sought border wall.
