Pope criticizes Trump’s border wall policy

President Trump’s border wall policy has received tons and tons of criticism from across the world and lately he has become the victim of the most high-profile critic. Pope Francis said, “He who raises a wall ends up a prisoner of the wall he erected… If you raise a wall between people, you end up a prisoner of that wall that you raised.”

Earlier this year Pope Francis criticized fear of migrants to Trump’s plans saying the fear is making everyone crazy.

Over the period of past two years Pope has been frequently criticizing Trump for his ignorance and nativism. He earlier presented the president with a treaties on climate change and later called White House to extend the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

Meanwhile, the Department of Homeland Security has lately requested for assistance of Department of Defense in the erection of new barriers on the border by replacing existing ones.

Over the weekend White House warned to be shutting down the border entirely if Mexico fails in restricting asylum seekers from reaching the border.

A tweet of Trump reads, “Mexico must use its very strong immigration laws to stop the many thousands of people trying to get into the USA. Our detention areas are maxed out & we will take no more illegals. Next step is to close the Border! This will also help us with stopping the Drug flow from Mexico!”
