Wall Construction Denounced

The Honduran cardinal has denounced the US plans for construction of a wall along the country’s border with Mexico.

Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga of Tegucigalpa said that it is ironic the North American Free Trade Agreement allows free movement of merchandise across national boundaries, but the wall is an effort to block the movement of humans. He predicted that the construction project would fail to stop the flow of immigrants entering the US illegally.

Speaking at a May 8 conference, Cardinal Rodriguez compared the border wall with the Berlin Wall– overlooking the critical distinction that the proposed border fence is intended by the US to keep unauthorized visitors out, whereas in Berlin, the Communist regime built the wall to keep its own subjects locked in.
