Meanwhile, Pope Francis is defending his use of the term “concentration camps” to describe some refugee centers in Europe, where thousands of people seeking asylum in Europe are imprisoned behind barbed wire. Pope Francis first made the comments a week ago and then defended his use of the term on Saturday.
Pope Francis: “It was not a lapsus linguae, a slip of the tongue. There are concentration camps. Sorry, I meant refugee camps, which are real concentration camps. There are some maybe in Italy, others somewhere else, in Germany not for sure. You think of people who are locked in a camp and cannot go out. Think of what happened in northern Europe when they wanted to cross the sea to go to England. They are locked inside.”
