Yes, you read that right.
Tuesday on MSNBC, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) offered her deluded opinion on the crisis of tens of thousands of unaccompanied illegal immigrant children pouring into America.
Pelosi downplayed the notion that paying for these children would be a strain on America’s financial resources, and said the U.S. government should treat the children like “baby Jesus,” who was himself “a refugee” trying to be freed “from violence.”
“In Washington, I see an embrace of the idea that this is a humanitarian crisis by people who are not politicizing the issue,” Pelsoi said. “What we need to do is have the supplemental that gives us the resources to meet the humanitarian needs, to do the border control, but also to have the judicial piece so that these children have representation and judges to hear their cases. those who have a right to stay, whether it’s refugee status or asylum.”
Here’s where Pelosi gets really, really nutty.
“I reference the conference of bishops statement in which they say baby Jesus was a refugee from violence. Let us not turn away these children and send them back into a burning building. That’s the bishops, so we have to do this in a way that honors our values but also protects our border and does so in a way that the American people understand more clearly,” she added.
I appreciate Nancy’s courage to offer other people’s money to pay for these children. Perhaps she should lead by example and house several of them in her own multi-million dollar California estate:
