Cardinal Robert Sarah of Guinea said Sunday that world leaders must respect the rights of countries to reject migrants who won’t assimilate or who are dangerous.
Sarah, Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, said at the Europa Christi conference in Poland that the rights of countries to distinguish legitimate political and religious refugees from migrants who seek economic benefits with no intention of assimilating to a country’s culture must be respected, according to Catholic Herald. Sarah’s comments on immigration directly contradict those of Pope Francis, who on multiple occasions has urged countries, including the U.S., to keep their doors open to migrants.
“The right of a nation to distinguish a refugee from an economic immigrant who does not identify with the culture of the country in which he wants to live cannot be undermined,” Sarah said according to Polish news organization GOSC.[contentcards url=”http://dailycaller.com/2017/10/24/cardinal-says-countries-have-right-to-reject-migrants-who-wont-assimilate/” target=”_blank”]
