In the most ridiculous and ironic statement made regarding the border fence, Senior Vatican Cardinal Renato Martino, condemned the building of walls between countries while standing behind the walls separating Vatican City from the unwashed masses in Italy.

'Speaking of borders, I must unfortunately say that in a world that greeted the fall of the Berlin Wall with joy, new walls are being built between neighbourhood and neighbourhood, city and city, nation and nation,' said Martino, head of the Vatican's Council for Justice and Peace.
Asked if the U.S.-Mexican fence was the wrong thing to do, Martino said: 'Yes, that's exactly what it is.'
Martino praised Mexican and U.S. bishops for opposing what he called 'an inhuman programme, which is what the construction of that wall and all others is'.
Does this idiot even realize how ridiculous he sounds? Said while standing inside a "nation within a nation" with its own border wall and containing priceless treasures of art and gold that it doesn't share with others. Then demanding that everyone else should not build walls like they have done over the past century.
These people want no borders. They do not believe in any nation defending itself - except Vatican City. They would allow terrorists, drug runners, criminals, fraudsters or anyone wanting to do harm to a country to be free to enter it and do so.
This stance by Vatican City - and the Catholic church in general - is socialism plain and simple. The people who have worked to build something should bow down and hand it over to those who demand it.
