Pope Francis condemns stigmatizing of migrants

Pope Francis has condemned the 'senseless' stigmatizing of migrants.

Speaking at an event in Panama City, he said it was irresponsible to see all migrants as threats to society.

The pontiff said the church fosters a culture that welcomes, protects, promotes and integrates.

His comments came hours after US President Donald Trump agreed to end a 35-day-old government shutdown over funding for a US-Mexico border wall.
