Obama Praises Pope, Both Pump Immigration & Climate Change Action

From the South Lawn of the White House Wednesday, President Obama welcomed Pope Francis on his very first visit to the United States. As both addressed the 15,000 gathered, immigration and climate change action were key issues mentioned. “You remind us that ‘the Lord’s most powerful message’ is mercy,” Obama said to the Pope in his opening remarks. “That means welcoming the stranger with empathy and a truly open heart – from the refugee who flees war-torn lands, to the immigrant who leaves home in search of a better life.”
