Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today said the border wall is “a blessing” and thanked President Trump for overseeing construction of 450 miles of the barrier during his administration.
“I wish I could go down to Alamo, Texas, and bless the wall, as we have the custom of blessing other construction projects,” Father Pavone said. “As a Catholic and as an American I am grateful the President has implemented the balanced view of immigration articulated in the Catholic Catechism (n.2241) that not only welcomes immigrants generously, but enables our country to welcome them legally, with safeguards that protect them as well as those already here.”
Calling the wall a “great achievement,” Trump said “we can’t let the next administration even think about taking it down.”
The president also said he was troubled by the siege of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, saying “we believe in respecting American history and traditions, not tearing them down.”
As to Democrat efforts to remove him from office before his term expires this month, Trump said: “The 25th Amendment is zero risk to me.”
Priests for Life is in the midst of a Novena of Masses in Thanksgiving for President Trump and his accomplishments (10 a.m. ET, www.EndAbortion.TV) and a daily prayer time in reparation for the damage done by the Democrat Party at 9 p.m. ET on those same channels.
Priests for Life (EndAbortion.US) is the world’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated exclusively to ending abortion.
