Pope Francis urges openness to migrants as he meets one of Europe's most anti-immigration leaders

 

CBS News reports that "Pope Francis carefully rebuked the anti-migrant politics of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban on the first day of a papal visit to Central Europe. Speaking at an outdoor Mass in Budapest . . . , the pontiff called on Hungarians to `extend their arms to everyone,' in a veiled reference to the nationalist government's closed-door policy on immigration.

The Mass, held before tens of thousands of people in the capital's Hero's Square, came moments after an hour-long meeting between Francis and the prime minister. The two men are fierce opponents on the topic of immigration." (bold added)
