Cardinal Appointments in Latin America Predominate. None from United States

Take that Gringos!
Edit: Only one Cardinal from Africa?  There are new "American" Cardinals, just not from the United States. The CV of Archbishop Leopoldo José Brenes Solórzano should be interesting, and no hat for the Belgian Primate, André-Joseph Léonard, a steadfast witness to Catholic teaching and therefore a persistent target for leftist activists.

16 Voting Cardinals:

1 – Abp. Pietro Parolin, Secretary of State.
2 – Abp. Lorenzo Baldisseri, Secretary of the Synod of Bishops.
3 – Abp. Gerhard Ludwig Műller, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
4 – Abp. Beniamino Stella, Prefect of the Congregation for the Clergy
5 – Abp. Vincent Gerard Nichols, Westminster (England and Wales).
6 – Abp. Leopoldo José Brenes Solórzano, Managua (Nicaragua).
7 – Abp. Gérald Cyprien Lacroix, Québec (Canada).
8 – Abp. Jean-Pierre Kutwa, Abidjan (Côte d'Ivoire).
9 – Abp. Orani João Tempesta, O.Cist., Rio de Janeiro (Brazil).
10 – Abp. Gualtiero Bassetti, Perugia-Città della Pieve (Italy).
11 – Abp. Mario Aurelio Poli, Buenos Aires (Argentina).
12 – Abp. Andrew Yeom Soo-jung, Seoul (Korea).
13 – Abp. Ricardo Ezzati Andrello, S.D.B., Santiago de Chile.
14 – Abp. Philippe Nakellentuba Ouédraogo, Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso).[Africa]
15 – Abp. Orlando B. Quevedo, O.M.I., Cotabato (Philippines).
16 – Bp. Chibly Langlois, Les Cayes (Haiti).

Cardinals over 80:

1 – Abp. Loris Francesco Capovilla, Titular of Mesembria (former secretary to John XXII). 2 – Abp. Fernando Sebastián Aguilar, C.M.F., Emeritus of Pamplona (Spain). 3 – Abp. Kelvin Edward Felix, Emeritus of Castries (St. Lucia)
