Pope to Trump: Defend DACA if you're 'pro

The Pope sustains a black eye and a bloodied brow — this is how it happened Pope embraces Colombian victims, ex-fighters in peace bid

Pope Francis wrapped up his Colombia trip with a deeply personal final day Sunday honoring St. Peter Claver, a fellow Jesuit who ministered to hundreds of thousands of African slaves who arrived in the port of Cartagena to be sold during Spanish colonial times. A POLITICO/ Morning Consult poll published the day of DACA's rescission, which surveyed 1,993 registered voters, found that 58 percent of American voters would like to see a pathway for DACA recipients to stay and become citizens after meeting certain requirements. The pontiff said during the presidential campaign that a man who thought about building walls and not bridges was "not Christian".

The pope also addressed questions about climate change, saying that those who deny its reality should listen to scientists, who "speak very clearly".

The final Mass, celebrated at the docks and full of up-tempo music and worship, reiterated numerous themes Pope Francis raised throughout his trip to Colombia: peace, reconciliation and social inclusion, to name but three. But the Trump administration announced last week that it would no longer accept new DACA applicants as of September 5 - and urged current DACA recipients whose work authorization cards expire before March 5, 2018 to apply for an one-time, two-year renewal. We have to take it seriously.

Speaking with reporters as Hurricane Irma barreled up Florida's Gulf Coast on Sunday, Pope Francis bolstered his reputation as an outspoken advocate of addressing man-made global warming when he said aboard the papal plane that "history will judge" climate change deniers.

"It's not something to play with", the pope said.

But he also shows you how far the supposedly religious conservatives in this country have strayed: they brandish the Bible and claim to be legislating in the name of God, then they throw out the pope at the first sign of criticism from the church. He emphasized that everyone has a moral responsibility to respond to the "very serious" issue of climate change, not only politicians, but each one of us.

The pontiff was in the country to appeal for it to "untie the knots of violence" following the government's controversial peace deal with rebel group Farc which ended 50 years of civil war.

Politicians and diplomats can do all the right things to negotiate peace deals, he said, but if the nation's people aren't on board, peace will not be lasting. "Young people need to find their roots again", he said.

The Vatican said he received ice treatment and was fine. He said that the technical or political aspects of the peace process are necessary, but they will only go so far. This is my hope. "I believe in this". Francis, known for his own simple and austere style, said Claver was "austere and charitable to the point of heroism".
