Northern League secretary chides pope over migrants

Milan, July 8 - The strongly anti-immigrant Northern League's second-in-command said on Monday that Pope Francis should help migrants "in their own countries". Deputy Secretary Matteo Salvini wrote on his Facebook page that Francis should not encourage the "globalization of clandestine" immigration, responding to the pope's call to avoid the "globalization of indifference". Francis paid a first-ever visit to the island of Lampedusa where thousands of migrants land yearly after making dangerous crossings in often rickety and overcrowded boats. Many have lost their lives trying to reach the island's shores.
