File this under the endless examples of flaming hypocrisy. Democrats have suddenly found outrage at former President Obama’s immigration policies. Politicians will say anything to get re-elected so be sure to check out the video link where Disgraced House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi agrees and defends the current immigration policy President Trump is enforcing including separating kids from their families!
By The Daily Wire: Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told the press, after visiting a jam-packed illegal immigrant detention center in June 28, 2014, that what “some view as a crisis,” she viewed as “an opportunity” to continue to show our humanity.
Rather than “politicizing” the situation and decrying the state of the detained children, as she and her colleagues have done in increasingly extreme terms over the last week, she said what she witnessed at the detention center was “dazzling.”
“What we just saw was so stunning,” she said. “If you believe, as we do, that every child, every person, has a spark of divinity in them and is therefore worthy of respect, what we saw in those rooms was dazzling – a sparkling array of God’s children, worthy of respect. So we have to use, as was said this morning, the crisis that some view as a crisis – and it does have crisis qualities – as an opportunity to show who we are as Americans: that we do respect people for their dignity and their worth; that we know how to get the job done, that relates to, again stopping trafficking. Because that’s one of the fundamentals that will reinforce the law.” Check out the Video
“We have the law that established the Department of Homeland Security. We have the Flores decision. So the balance that we’re trying to create is to move these kids, these young people, these families as quickly as possible into another setting. We have to do it in a way that meets certain standards – and not, in our rush, not do the best we can for them,” she said.
She noted one particularly “tragic image,” a boy “in isolation all by himself,” but made sure to underscore that it’s “for his safety and the safety of others.”
