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.”
Isn’t it ironic how the same woman who compares those who cross our borders illegally to “baby Jesus” inadvertently refers to a “saint” as a “senator?
In 2013, Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke — the leading cardinal of the highest court at the Vatican – also said she should be denied Communion until she stops endorsing abortion.
Democrats believed immigration reform was their winning ticket to maintain control of the Senate and to take back control of the House in November’s elections – until it wasn’t.
Pelosi was all for speeding up the deportation process for illegal immigrant baby Jesus refugees — before she was against it.
As CNN reported Thursday, “the current crisis on the nation’s southern border appears to be fueling a notable shift in American attitudes toward immigration policy with border security growing in importance.”
Back in February, 54 percent of Americans supported the idea of legal status for illegal immigrants. Only 41 percent preferred tighter border security.
But according to Thursday’s CNN/ORC International poll, 51 percent of Americans now prefer tighter border security and only 45 percent are in favor of providing illegal immigrants with legal status.
Come to think of it, maybe the illegal immigrants do have something in common with Jesus. One day they adored him — waving palm fronds and shouting his name as he rode through the streets on (ironically) a donkey — and the next… well, you know.
