Sarah Palin is claiming that Nancy Pelosi heeds the needs of illegal immigrant children over those of the U.S. unborn. The former governor of Alaska is often critical of the California Democrat, yet she was particularly judgmental of Pelosi in choosing to visit the Mexico border this Saturday afternoon. News Max reports this Sunday, June 30, that Palin took to Facebook to vent her frustrations, asserting that the former political figure is treating the situation as an opportunity rather than a crisis.
“Pelosi spoke highly of illegal immigrants storming our U.S. border, including the children being used and abused in this crisis, and said America needs to look at this as an ‘opportunity,’ not a crisis,” Palin announced on her Facebook page.
The House Minority Leader is known to be a major proponent of illegal immigrants and their inherent rights, particularly those of children. During a speech at the U.S. and Mexico border this weekend, Nancy Pelosi reminded listeners that all people are God’s children, and as such, deserve to be treated with intrinsic value and dignity.
“Every child, every person, has a spark of divinity in them and is therefore worthy of respect,” reinforced the female Democrat in a statement, “[because] we are all God’s children.”
Yet Sarah Palin is not having any of it. Apparently, says the former governor, her newfound heeding of illegal immigrants — allegedly caring more for these children than the unborn in America — is “one heck of a great conversion.” In her already viral Facebook post, she added on Pelosi’s comments:
“[She’s] either speaking such gibberish, considering her track record, or she’s confessing one heck of a great conversion,” said the past Alaskan governor.
The Washington Post shares that Nancy Pelosi made a special appearance at a Texas Border Patrol center to speak about immigrant rights and the importance of upcoming reform in regards to this important matter. The House Minority leader said that politics need to be redressed for the moment when considering the legal privileges of immigrant children, discussing what President Obama recently cited as an “urgent humanitarian situation.”
Pelosi has said that it may be late in the game, but it’s still not time to give up on the issue of reform. Speaking to both her Catholic faith and her political beliefs, the governmental figure says July 2014 may still be a time of change.
“A few days ago I would have been more optimistic about comprehensive immigration reform,” Pelosi said. “I thought that we had been finding a way because we have been very patient and respectful of [House Speaker John Boehner] trying to do it one way or another. I don’t think he gives us much reason to be hopeful now, but we never give up. There’s still the month of July.”
Yet news of Pelosi’s appearance at the Texas immigration facility didn’t sit well with Sarah Palin. She criticized the House minority leader on several fronts, noting that despite her backing of immigrant children, she has never shown a similar amount of care or support for unborn children here in the U.S., including on the issue of abortion. The past governor even called into question her religion in regards to a lack of advocacy for pro-life concerns facing the American people today.
“Pelosi often touts her Catholic faith but overlooks this doctrine her church has preached for 2000 years,” Palin shared in the update on Facebook. “Hopefully she’s changed her tune on the issue of life – in which case, I’m sure she’ll invite those who understand the impact a culture of life can have on America to use her new, refreshing advocacy statement.”
Palin ultimately protested Pelosi’s essential pro-life statements for illegals and immigration given at the Mexico and U.S. border being arbitrary. While the Democrat’s party is allegedly “for the children,” they show a lack of heeding the needs of the unborn in our very own nation, she argues. If anything, she complains, Nancy Pelosi is being hypocritical in her statements.
“[She] educates those in her party who constantly claim to be ‘for the children’ in one breath, but in their next breath advocate snuffing out the life of innocent children soon-to-be-born … Cynics — or those of us living in reality — recognize typical liberal hypocrisy here. But then again, we can hope this is revelation of a profound Pelosi political conversion! Though I won’t hold my breath.”
