Nancy Pelosi: ‘Treat Illegal Immigrant Children Like Baby Jesus’
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that the illegal immigrants flooding the Southern border need to be treated like baby Jesus, mainly because that is what her Catholic faith teaches.
“I reference the conference of bishops statement in which they say baby Jesus was a refugee from violence,” said Pelosi. “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.”

Pelosi almost never references her faith when it comes to her political beliefs. On abortion, Pelosi derails the Catholic church teaching that life begins at conception, often times accusing pro-life politicians of Bible-thumping. However, when convenient, as with the Southern border crisis, Pelosi pulls out the Bible herself.
On Twitter, David Burge offered up the perfect solution for the illegals at the Southern border to go.
