Italy’s new populist government is trying to reduce arrivals of rescued migrants, but the Pope praised both Italy and Greece for being ‘most generous’ in taking in migrants rescued at sea.

‘Each country must do this with the virtue of government, which is prudence, and take in as many refugees as it can, as many as it can integrate, educate, give jobs to,’ he said.

The Pope also renewed his criticism of the Trump administration’s immigration policy, supporting Roman Catholic bishops in the U.S. who have condemned separating children from parents who enter the country illegally.
