My friends and I love each other no matter our skin color. Sophie said her hope is that he can bring change to U.S. immigration laws.

So she brought skin color into it? What does skin color have to do with it? She was trained well by her parents up to and including pulling the skin color card in regards to illegal immigration.
Obviously coached.

Five-year-olds don't say things like that.

I'm wondering how the little brat even got close to the Pope, what with all the security.

Sounds like the Pope and Obama's administration were part of the conspiracy.

I'm sure the Catholic Church is loving the idea of America becoming a Catholic country what with unchecked immigration.
What an absurd comment/s.
Catholics are the largest denomination of Christians in America, and even though the Pope heads the Catholic church, he is always speaking to all Christians. Just like Billy Graham is not Catholic, but they still listen to his ministry to find wisdom and the word of God.

Also, not all Catholics are mindless zombies who follow the Popes words and put them into deeds. Heck Pope's are only human beings speaking the gospel and Catholic church doctrine. That does not mean all Catholics are strict adherents or agree with everything the church takes a position on.
I can assure you most politically conservative Catholics oppose much of his political views on climate change dogma this current Pope is spouting. Not to mention opposition to unfettered illegal aliens overrunning our borders.
I believe in helping the poor, but my interpretation of that is not that I must invite the worlds poor into our own backyards to do so. Catholic charities do a fine job of helping the poor overseas, as they do helping out our own poor and homeless.

Fair enough.

But I think you would agree that the liberal media pundits are using the Pope's visit to promote their agenda against conservatives.

I love how they put her in traditional Mexican dress. Make it look like she's from an innocent peasant family that just swum over yesterday.
I was thinking the exact same things. Galvanized? You're right, how does her dad "feed" the country? Seems like he'd be picking crops rather than holding the job that he does. That's usually the pro-illegal argument for those who are working in the ag industry. Whoops!

They planned this for a year. It was a set up. Deport the illegals and take the anchor babies with them.

Yes, how long would it take to fill that job opening? A citizen was probably let go in order to hire him. I have seen this happening. I think we can spare this family with no issue at all. Sadly, since she was so young, I am sure she is terrified and will terrify other anchors like herself thinking they will be abandoned by their parents. It doesn't matter how you coach a child that young, it will leave a "mark" and too much pressure to put on a 5 year old to save her parents as it should be working the other way around. We all suspected the anchors were for this reason and all this sob story did was verify that.

Protestants are still the majority in America. I have never heard Billy Graham lauded as the religious leader for Catholic Americans the way they're trying to make the pope some figurehead for non-Catholics. Yes I'm aware American Catholics often buck dogma, much to their church's chagrin. This is why the Church encourages invasion from more adherent illegals from Latin America. The Church in the US is dying.
