Not at the cost of taking the entire Middle east who HATE the Western worlds they are being "allowed" into, and seem to forget it.
Yes, but that does not excuse the people breaking our laws to get here
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 — can also be granted citizenship. But that means few of the Vatican’s citizens are women.
A Vatican spokesman did not return an email seeking comment on its policy.

The Pope preaches peace and love so it pisses you off that he spoke to Congress I can't imagine how mad you were when that war mongering Nazi Netanyahu spoke to them.
These activists are seriously deluded to think we give a flying # what the Pope says or thinks.
I think you will find that more Americans agree with what the Pope says than disagree.
He ought to mind his own business and stay out of our Capitol.
Seeing how he is a political figure he has just as much right to come to our capital as any other political figure. Actually it's nice to have someone come here and not try to get us to go someplace and kill people.
