Perhaps you're living under a rock these days, and don't know that Pope Francis is currently on a whirlwind tour of America's amber waves of grain and purple mountains' majesty. He's been given the nickname "cool pope" by all the Internet wags for his reasonably progressive views on everything from abortion to gun control to capitalism. You know, progressive for the king of the Catholic church. Pope Francis has also spoken out on immigration reform, so it's not shocking that little Sophie Cruz of La Senora Reina de Los Angeles Church thought he might be willing to bend his ear to her plea: let my parents stay in this country.
