Ros-Lehtinen considera un gran honor la visita del Papa Francisco; Curbelo agradece su preocupación por los ancianos, pobres, jóvenes e inmigrantes
(NP)-As Pope Francis heads away from the U.S. Capitol, lawmakers from South Florida – and around the country – are beginning to give their assessments of his historic speech to Congress.
U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, a Miami Republican, talked about the high honor of the visit – whatever somebody’s views. “I’m glad we in Congress, the American people, and those around the world had the opportunity to hear from Pope Francis,” said Ros-Lehtinen. “His message was at heart a spiritual one and his mention of our country’s possibilities was heartening to hear. No matter your opinion of his message, it was a high honor to have him visit our nation and the People’s House.”
U.S. Rep. Carlos Curbelo, a Republican from Kendall, indicated the impact the pope’s words may have on the U.S. political process. “I appreciated the Holy Father’s special concern for the elderly, the young, immigrants and the poor,” he said. “Our government is failing all of them in different ways. The pope’s words should inspire America’s Congress to find new solutions.” (En Naked Politics)
