Pope Hopes Trump Will Rethink DACA Decision on Pro-Life Grounds

Pope Francis and Consuela Cordoba

In other remarks, the pontiff said: "those who are corrupt can't ask for forgiveness"; US President Donald Trump should not split up migrant families; that he had been moved by the "joy, tenderness and nobility" of the Colombian people; and that he "did not understand" the North Korea crisis. 'They are clear and precise'.

"BASHED" Pope Francis shows a bruise around his left eye and eyebrow caused by an accidental hit against the popemobile's window glass while visiting the old sector of Cartagena, Colombia, on Sunday (Monday in Manila). He sought to play down the injury saying, "I was leaning down to greet children and then I banged my head...."

"I hope that it will be rethought a little, because I have heard the president of the United States speak as a pro-life man".

During the interview, Francis admitted that he's unfamiliar with the particulars of DACA, or with Trump's decision.

Weighing in on two areas of disagreement with a USA president with whom he has already clashed, Pope Francis said Monday that climate science is clearly true, and that President Donald Trump should allow young immigrants to stay in the United States if he is truly "pro-life".

"Removing young people from their family is not a thing that bears good fruit, neither for the young person nor the family", the pope said.

"Anyone who denies this must go to the scientists and ask", he said.

Francis also expressed fears that repeal of the 2012 program instituted by President Barack Obama would lead to the separation of families.

"We could ask the pope to intervene directly for dialogue", said Venezuelan housewife Nancy Pugliese, 35, who attended Francis's visit in Cartagena.

Following Jesus and sharing the good news of salvation in him, he said, means leaving one's comfort zone and going out, encountering others and concretely showing them God's love.

"The Holy Father is fine", Holy See spokesman, Greg Burke, said. "I don't know if we have three years or not, but it's true that if we don't turn back we will go down".

"When you don't want to see, you don't see", he said.

Francis said individuals and politicians had a "moral responsibility" to act on advice from scientists, who had clearly outlined what must be done to halt the course of global warming. Theirs is not an airy-fairy opinion, they are most clear. "And history will judge their decisions".

"I believe that this law comes, I think, not from Congress but from the executive branch of the government", he said, according to a translation by Crux.

But the other reason, he said, is nearly always money.
