Saturday at a press conference from the Rio Grande Valley, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) discussed her tour of a border holding facility and addressed the humanitarian crisis of thousands unaccompanied minors flooding across the U.S.-Mexico border, which she called a "humanitarian opportunity."
Pelosi explained, "We are all Americans -- north and south in this hemisphere," and urged America to see this as not a crisis but an opportunity "to be helpful." She also said she wished she could simply "take home" the thousands of children temporarily housed in the overburden facilities.

U.S. House of Representatives Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says the influx of Central American immigrants along the border is not a crisis, but rather an “opportunity.”
Congresswoman Pelosi took part in a special press conference with U.S. Representative Filemon Vela at the Brownsville Events Center Saturday morning.
The two had toured a nearby Border Patrol facility that is currently housing Central American immigrants.
“This crisis, that some call it crisis, we have to view it as an opportunity,” Pelosi said.
The California congresswoman said it’s an opportunity for the United States to show the world how it deals with the women and children, who she says are refugees.
... The immigration crisis has left Border Patrol facilities in the Rio Grande Valley filled with more immigrants than the building can hold.
Pelosi recalled that she saw on child immigrant in solitary confinement at the Border Patrol facility.
Really? My heart goes out the the children that are being exploited, but the first duty of our Federal Government is to protect our citizens FIRST, and not illegal aliens pouring in.
