Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin suggested that House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) cares more about illegal immigrant children than the unborn in the United States after Pelosi went to the U.S.-Mexico border on Saturday and said America should view the border crisis as a “humanitarian opportunity.”
Palin said her sister sent her the Breitbart TV report about Pelosi’s comments over the weekend. According to Palin, Pelosi was “either speaking such gibberish, considering her track record, or confessing one heck of a great conversion.”
“Yesterday, Ms. 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 said in a Facebook post on Sunday. “She proclaimed, ‘every child, every person, has a spark of divinity in them and is therefore worthy of respect’ because we are ‘all God’s children.'”
Palin wondered, “How sincere is this politician’s concern?”
“Never seen as a pro-child/pro-life advocate with respect for that sacred ‘spark of divinity’ in every innocent human life in the womb, Ms. Pelosi often touts her Catholic faith but overlooks this doctrine her Church has preached for 2000 years,” Palin continued. “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 said Pelosi’s words Saturday at the border about everyone being “God’s children” are “the foundational pro-life message that can educate 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!” Palin said. “Though I won’t hold my breath.”
Palin has called out the Obama administration for exploiting illegal immigrant children at the border for its political agenda.
