In an interview with the Fox Business Network on Thursday, Trump suggested that Pope Francis was serving as a pawn of the Mexican government by visiting the country.
“I think that the pope is a very political person,” Trump said.
“I don’t think he understands the danger of the open border that we have with Mexico,” Trump said of the Pope. “I think Mexico got him to do it because they want to keep the border just the way it is. They’re making a fortune, and we’re losing.”
Trump is correct that this Pope is very political. He is, in fact, a socialist leaning political Pope. He is socialist robot straight out of the socialist teachings of the Jesuits.
That said, an open border with Mexico is mostly about free trade and free exchange, which includes labor. The problem is only when illegals are given the right to vote and given government handouts that they become a problem. But this is exactly what Trump wants. He has said he wants the illegals removed and allowed to return after registration. But the last thing a libertarian should want is registered Mexicans in the country. They should stay unregistered. And the big question should be: How do the rest of us get unregistered?
