Speaking on Thursday, House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi made some outrageous comments about what the attitude of Americans should be vis-à-vis the Trump Administration’s policy regarding illegal immigrants, echoing the charge that the administration wants to separate parents from children and asking rhetorically ”why there aren’t uprisings all over the country.”
When we had a hearing on a subject related to this asylum seeker, refugees, etc., the association of evangelicals, the evangelicals, testified that refugees and asylum, that is, they called it the crown jewel of America’s humanitarianism, crown jewel of American humanitarianism. And in order to do away with that crown jewel, they are doing away with children being with their moms. This is, I just even know why there aren’t uprisings all over the country. And maybe there will be when people realize that this is a policy that they defend. It’s a horrible thing. And I don’t see any prospect for legislation here.
A reporter asked, “Why not?”
Pelosianswered, “Why not? What do we do here? We do nothing. We do nothing.”
