(PatriotHeadline.com)- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has become one of the most vicious, angry, and bitter politicians in modern American politics, and her new attempt to cut off funding for Catholic schools while offering money to illegal aliens is coming under fire from patriotic Christian Americans. The president of the Catholic League, Bill Donohue, slammed Pelosi on Monday for her attempts to remove funding for Catholic schools while promising huge sums for sanctuary cities.
In a statement, Dr. Donohue said that while Nancy Pelosi likes to boast about her Catholic schooling, she “wants to rescind funding for Catholic schools that were granted by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.”
The statement was entitled “PELOSI DECLARES WAR ON CATHOLIC SCHOOLS,” and in it Dr Donogue explains why Pelosi’s latest proposals are “immoral.”
“She seeks to discriminate against taxpayers who send their children to Catholic schools, families who were equally impacted by the pandemic,” he wrote. “She is also violating the Federal Emergency Management Act (FEMA) policy as outlined in the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018.”
The state comes after Pelosi’s partisan bill, dubbed the HEROES Act, was passed in the House of Representatives which is controlled by the Democrats. Pelosi and her colleagues refused to allow the Republicans to work with them on the legislation, and slipped in many far-left policy ideas into its 1,800+ pages. As part of the plan, Democrats would rescind funding given to Catholic schools who were affected by the coronavirus, and would redirect that money to illegal aliens who were ineligible for tax refunds.
Donohue explains how FEMA, which was passed in January 2018, allows federal funding to be directed to houses of worship that are affected by natural disasters. It was designed to help churches that were affected by Hurricanes Irma and Harvey, and would ensure churches are not at a disadvantage I the event of other natural disasters…like a pandemic.
Donohue encouraged everybody shocked by Pelosi’s decision to prioritize illegal aliens over American Catholics to contact her chief of staff, Terri McCullough, on [email protected]
For a woman who likes to invoke her Catholicism when she tells the media she doesn’t hate Trump, she doesn’t seem to want to help her fellow Catholics very much…
