Nancy Pelosi: 'We Cannot Have Deportation without Representation'
Breitbart ^ | 29 Jul 2014 | Charlie Spiering

Posted on 07/29/2014 4:16:33 PM PDT by mandaladon

During a hearing with House Democrats on Tuesday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi argued that the bill proposed by Republicans did not have the adequate resources to help unattended minors crossing the border with the immigration court process.

The bill, announced by Republicans on Tuesday, would spend $659 million in new spending in response to the crisis on the border.

Citing a friend, Pelosi said that “we cannot have deportation without representation,” and she praised the groups that were working to help the detained children.

The hearing featured unattended minors, now living in the United States, who complained about how border officials treated them.

“It’s not just about having a heart; it’s about having a soul,” Pelosi said after the children finished testifying. “And the soul of our country is about respecting the dignity and worth of every person. The soul of our country is about giving every person access to rights who is in our country.”

Pelosi noted that sending the children back to their home countries would be like sending them “back into a burning building.”

She again compared the children to the baby Jesus, who fled his home country as an infant to escape violence.

“So we do appeal to our country and our colleagues to have a heart when it comes to people coming into our country, some seeking amnesty and asylum to escape violence in Central America or wherever they come from,” she said.

659 million tax payer dollars is without approval. If polled, I would guess a majority would disapprove.

You’ve got more rights as an illegal alien than as a citizen.

Dear Nancy —

Anyone who achieves the title of Speaker of the House and then tells the American people that “we have to pass the bill so you can find out what’s in it” should never again be taken seriously about anything.

So please just STFU. You really seem more and more like the Mad Queen of Hearts every day.

Sincerely,
Maceman

Its funny how the democrats shifted from screaming about the epidemic of gun violence in America to declaring America to be a safe haven from violence in a matter of days.

“You’ve got more rights as an illegal alien than as a citizen.”

Citizenship is overrated these days.

Herod was killing all the infants in order to eliminate a perceived threat to his power. So, to that extent, the statement is true.

This liberal buffoon never knows when to talk and when to shut up, and when she talks, it is a comical circus. Why anyone takes her seriously is enigmatic.

Pelosi is to America what the antichrist is to the world.

But you see, the world has succumbed to the big lie...there is no devil.

actually she said that some bishop had said that..

I thought when I heard her “Since when did you care what a bishop said”

(She doesn’t listen to the bishops on abortion)

How come liberals only mention Jesus when it suits their purpose? She dared to mention the son of God, where is the liberal outcry?

Where are the photos of these "children?"

There are no pictures of "the children." Congresscritters are forbidden from going to the border and see what's going on.
