(Big League Politics) – At a Thursday morning press conference, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) showed little concern for the fact that illegal aliens crossing the border with impunity might be dangerous for Americans.
“Let me just close by saying this: clearly there’s a disparity of shared values in terms of respecting the dignity and worth of everyone – being concerned about every death that happens, uh, because we live in an imperfect world, and that’s very sad,” Pelosi said. “But it is not a justification for having more children die in custody of be separated from their families.”
When Pelosi described “every death that happens,” she was referring to deaths of Americans killed by illegals. In her mind, innocent American slain by illegals is not a justification for enhancing border security measures, including family separation at the border.
Worth noting, family separation is not a policy meant to protect only Americans, but also meant to protect migrant and illegal children, many of whom are smuggled into the United States by drug cartels. Those drug cartels can and do use these children for nefarious purposes, including selling them into sex slavery. Holding migrant children helps ensure that they end up reunited with their actual parents.
Pelosi is clear. She cares more about illegal aliens than the American citizens whom she is supposed to represent.
She is right about one thing, though. There is a “disparity in shared values” between the parties. Republicans care about Americans. Democrats do not.
