#1 Less than 7 bucks per person. Likely the money would have gone farther in their home countries.

#2 "All these people were stranded, unable to enter the United States, without a home or livelihood," the statement says.

They have homes and they can still go back to their homes. But as long as you keep providing them with food and shelter, why should they?

#3 They have to make a livelihood where they are. This "pope" is looking dodgier by the minute, the old pope is still alive...

What really happened?

#4 The "No Hope Pope". The failure of his mission (or his lack of one) is why Latin countries have failed their populations. So like the typical leftist he throws a few pieces of silver at the problem.

#5 I'd like to thank the pope for easily demonstrating how much 'free people' cost.

I am guessing that this money is not out of his own wallet. Think about that for a second, all the effort and money it took to free up $500k - I'd guess that it took $1.5 million to make the $500k. That is for just one day of 75k 'free people'.

Never mind the wear and tear on the infrastructure, damage from criminal activities, landfill and sanitation concerns, so forth. Oh, and the sweet, sweet graft of only half of it actually being used as intended. I know, optimistic.

#6 There is poverty and hardship all over the world (though, thanks to economic reforms, MUCH less than there used to be, particularly in India and China). Why are these people more deserving of the Pope's money than those in, say, Sudan or Eritrea?

#7 And on that point, wouldn't $500k go further in Guatamala than LA?

Here the pope is encouraging poverty - and we all know there is flesh trade going on here too.

#8 Why are these people more deserving of the Pope's money than those in, say, Sudan or Eritrea?

Or Malta and the seacoast towns of Italy buried in african colonists.

#9 So he's paying mercenaries to invade the US? Act of war.
