Pope Criticizes Climate Change Deniers and Trump on DACA

posted on September 12, 2017

The New York Times’s Jason Horowitz reports that on Monday the Pope criticized climate change deniers and President Trump’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Children Program (DACA), which protects undocumented children from deportation. Horowitz writes, “The pope, echoing the excoriation of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops – which called the president’s decision ‘reprehensible’ – argued that the removal of children from families hurt both children and parents.” Referencing psalms, Pope Francis said, “Man is stupid, the Bible said. It’s like that, when you don’t want to see, you don’t see.”
