As Hypocrite Pope Slams World Over Immigration Vatican Has Strictest Immigration Rules in the World

While this pope cruises the world scolding everyone for not opening their borders wide to allow any manner of “immigrant” to invade their country, one thing seems to be missing from his speeches. This scolding pope seems not to want to mention that his own enclave, the Vatican, has some of the strictest immigration rules in the entire world allowing only a tiny number of people a year to immigrate to his realm.

You heard that right. The man who claims he cares more, the bleeding heart who is supposed more compassionate than any human on earth, won’t let immigrants into his own enclave.

The Vatican, for its part, welcomes millions of visitors a year — but allows only a very select few, who meet strict criteria, to be admitted as residents or citizens.

Only about 450 of its 800 or so residents actually hold citizenship, according to a 2012 study by the Library of Congress. That study said citizens are either church cardinals who reside in the Vatican, the Holy See’s diplomats around the world, and those who have to reside in the city because of their jobs, such as the Swiss Guard.

Spouses and children who live in the city because of their relationship with citizens — including the Swiss Guard and workers such as the gardener — have also been granted citizenship. But that means few of the Vatican’s citizens are women.

Now, it is eminently logical that the Vatican would strictly control who is allowed to live permanently inside its walls. There are limited resources and the Vatican has a singular purpose that mass immigration isn’t compatible with.

But the simple fact is, that while this hypocrite pope screams that everyone else is racist and evil he is doing the same thing that he decries.
