Pope to migrants: ‘Free to choose whether to migrate or to stay’
WASHINGTON (ChurchMilitant.com) – The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is calling for a celebration of mass migration and open borders amid an unprecedented deluge of illegal migrants passing into and throughout the country.
The USCCB announced the celebration of National Migration Week, scheduled this year from Sept. 18 to 24. The annual event, intended to bring attention to the plight of migrants in the United States and around the world, culminates with World Day of Migrants and Refugees, established by the Holy See over 100 years ago.
The theme for this year’s observance, chosen by Pope Francis, is “Free to choose whether to migrate or to stay.” In a message for the occasion, the pontiff said:
The decision to migrate should always be free, yet in many cases, even in our day, it is not. Conflicts, natural disasters, or more simply, the impossibility of living a dignified and prosperous life in one’s native land is forcing millions of persons to leave. … Migrants flee because of poverty, fear or desperation. Eliminating these causes and thus putting an end to forced migration calls for shared commitment on the part of all, in accordance with the responsibilities of each. …
