Speaking with a group of reporters overseas the papal plane from a five-day visit back from Colombia, Francis said he hoped Trump would reconsider his decision to rescind the 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) initiative, which granted temporary deportation relief and work authorization for people brought to the country as children before 2007.

He expressed interest in Congress extending what Mr Trump has ended, saying he has "hope that it can be rethought a little".

Pope Francis echoed a popular progressive talking point on Monday when he questioned whether President Trump can really be considered "pro-life" due to his stance on immigration.

"The other day came the news of that Russian ship that went from Norway to Japan and crossed the North Pole without finding ice", Francis said.

"I have heard the U.S. president present himself as a pro-life man, and if he is that he will understand the importance of the family, and life, and how the family unit must be defended", Francis said.

Francis told reporters that it was important for young people to have roots, referring to the program's previous rulings that deferred deportations for those who arrived to the US before the age of sixteen.

The remarks come after Trump chose to end DACA, a program instituted by former President Barack Obama that protects undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S.as children from being deported.

"Then", he said, "decide and history will judge the decisions".

There were a number of questions about climate change, especially with regard to politicians and others who refuse to collaborate with other nations because they deny that climate change is caused by humans.

They said in a statement that they "informed him about the worsening of the crisis and the radicalization of the government's stance".

But a few years later, a local woman found it. Pope Francis said, "She had the courage and faith to put this blurred and torn fabric in a special place, restoring its lost dignity. Indeed, charity helps us to know the truth, and truth calls for acts of kindness".

"You can see the effects of climate change and scientists clearly tells us the path to pursue".

"We are called upon to be courageous, to have that evangelical courage which springs from knowing that there are many who are hungry, who hunger for God, who hunger for dignity, because they have been deprived", the Pope said.

The law is meant to guide people in doing good and it is not to be ignored, the Pope said.

"If Colombia wants a stable and lasting peace, it must urgently take a step in this direction, which is that of the common good, of equity, of justice, of respect for human nature and its demands", he said in a strong voice in the homily of the Mass.

"I appeal for the rejection of all violence in political life and for a solution to the current grave crisis, which affects everyone, particularly the poorest and most disadvantaged of society".
