Pope Francis says it’s ‘sinful’ and ‘criminal’ how migrants are excluded from society.
He made those comments as he canonised a 19th-Century bishop who worked to help migrants.
The Pope’s remarks come as Italy prepares for a new right-wing coalition government that’s promised to crack down on so-called illegal immigrants.
