Pope Francis has condemned those who fail to help migrants, during his traditional Easter speech in Rome.

The Pope said migrants often met "rejection from those who could offer them welcome and assistance".

I think some of his Papal forebears would want to disagree, especially Julian II.

Julius. Many of them would, which doesn't mean Pope Francis is wrong. Incidentally, the reviled Alexander VI offered refuge to thousands of Jews expelled from Spain, Portugal and Provence and ordered them to be treated benevolently and be free to practice their religion, so there's some sort of precedent for you.
