Pope Francis Visits Refugees in Lesbos Island

slate.com

Pope Francis has arrived on the Greek island of Lesbos to show support for about 3,000 refugees trying to reach Europe, BBC reports. 

After the EU-Turkey deal, these migrants are stuck on the island awaiting either processing of asylum claims or deportation to Turkey.

The Vatican insists that the Pope's visit is purely humanitarian and religious in nature and should not be seen as a criticism of the deportations.
