Francis No Friend

CNSNews reports the content of an interview Pope Francis gave Italian reporter Eugenio Scalfari, published in La Repubblica and translated by Agence France Presse.
I worry about very dangerous alliances between powers which have a distorted vision of the world: America and Russia, China and North Korea, (Russian President Vladimir) Putin and (Syria’s Bashar al-) Assad over the war in Syria.

The danger concerns immigration. Our main and unfortunately growing problem in the world today is that of the poor, the weak, the excluded, which includes migrants.

This is why the G20 worries me: It mainly hits immigrants.
This is exactly what you'd expect from an Argentine leftist, which Francis was before being elected Pope. His pronouncements are redolent of Liberation theology. That leftist movement, condemned by Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI, is in favor under Francis.
