From the Catholic Herald:
Pope Francis has condemned the US government’s policy of separating children from migrant families at the Mexican border.
The Pope told the Reuters news agency that “populism is not the solution” to high levels of immigration, and said that he supported recent statements by the US bishops describing the policy as “immoral” and “contrary to our Catholic values.” American bishops have condemned the practice of putting children of illegal immigrants in government shelters while their parents are held in jail. Pope Francis said he supported their position, adding: “Let it be clear that in these things, I respect [the position of] the bishops conference.”
