On Friday during her weekly press briefing, the House Minority Leader, Nancy Pelosi, demonstrated her theological acumen.
“These are children coming over the border. They are children… what would we do if Moses had not been accepted by the Pharaohs family. We would not have the Ten Commandments for starters. You understand my point, historically we have a challenge and we have examples of humanitarian assistance that should guide us,” Pelosi said.
Earlier in the week Pelosi told “Morning Joe” underaged illegal immigrants are comparable to “baby Jesus” who she insisted was a refugee 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,” the California Democrat 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.”
