Pope Francis believes the western world has a “moral responsibility” to roll out the red carpet for those who want to enter any country they wish.
“No solution to the global issue of mass migration should ignore our moral responsibility for the common good, to welcome, protect, promote and integrate those who knock on our doors to find a safe future,” the pope said in a Thursday speech, according to Voice of Europe.
Francis said because of the UN’s “Universal Declaration of Human Rights,” all human beings have “universal and indivisible rights.”
But do all humans have the right to enter the Vatican?
The pope is protected by a very large wall:

Will the pope let America move his wall to our southern border?

During a 2015 speech before Congress, Pope Francis implored U.S. politicians to embrace migrants seeking to come into America.
“Our world is facing a refugee crisis of a magnitude not seen since the second World War,” the pope said, according to USA Today, including “thousands of persons (who) are led to travel north in search of a better life.
“We must not be taken aback by their numbers, but rather view them as persons, seeing their faces and listening to their stories, trying to respond as best we can to their situation.”
“To respond in a way which is always humane, just and fraternal. We need to avoid a common temptation nowadays: to discard whatever proves troublesome.”
The Pope’s wall in these photos is something more impressive than anything even Donald Trump could build.
