Illegal immigrants ain’t nothin’ like “baby Jesus”
Okay… So, during an appearance on MSNBC’s “The Morning Joe,” House Minority Speaker Pelosi compared the tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors flooding across America’s border to “baby Jesus.”
“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.”
Illegal immigrants ain’t nothing like “baby Jesus.”
First, they aren’t even babies. They are “minors,” many of whom are gang members with criminal records. While “baby Jesus” had parents who sheltered, fed, clothed and educated Him, the parents of the illegal immigrant minors flooding across our borders sent them here to be sheltered, fed, clothed and educated at an annual cost to American taxpayers in the billions – and President Barack Obama wants American taxpayers to shell out nearly another $4 billion!
While 60,000 illegal immigrants have flooded across the Texas border this year — only about one-third of them are children.
Of course, while Pelosi compares illegal immigrant children to “baby Jesus” and wants us to think it’s our responsibility to welcome them and take care of them, she says her fight to maintain the right of American women to abort their children is “scared ground” to her.
In 2008, San Francisco’s Archbishop George H. Niederauer had a little chat with Pelosi to discuss the comments she made during an interview with Tom Brokaw on NBC’s “Meet the Press” and whether or not it was appropriate for her to continue receiving communion.
“I would say that as an ardent, practicing Catholic, this is an issue that I have studied for a long time,” Pelosi said. “And what I know is, over the centuries, the doctors of the church have not been able to make that definition.”
“And Senator–St. Augustine said at three months. We don’t know,” she added. “The point is it that it shouldn’t have an impact on a woman’s right to choose.”
