Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi condemned President Trump's immigration policy through a parable of Jesus in a Sunday tweet that also provided advice to illegal immigrants when the immigration and customs authorities arrived at their door.
"It should be a sign to us that today's Catholic Gospel reading is the Good Samaritan, where Jesus teaches us to love our neighbors as ourselves and to treat them with compassion," the spokesman tweeted. "Trump's ICE raids are tearing families apart today – the opposite of mercy. #FamiliesBelongTogether #KnowYourRights "
The Christian parable of the Good Samaritan found in the Gospel of Luke was a sermon from Jesus in which he depicts a Jewish man who was robbed, beaten and left behind by the roadside. Although ignored by several people, the man was finally rescued by a Samaritan, with whom the Jews of that time were enemies. History is considered by scholars and theologians as an example of love that overcomes personal prejudice.
The speaker's tweet is based on the same story that Pope Francis shared on Sunday and tweeted: "In today's gospel, Jesus suggests the Samaritan as a model by loving his neighbor as himself, showing how to divine God At the same time, true religiousness and full humanity is expressed. "
In today's Gospel, Jesus suggests the Samaritan as a model. By loving his neighbor as himself, he shows how to love God with all his heart while expressing true religiosity and full humanity.

Pelosi was sentenced by officials of the Roman Catholic Church who claimed that she should be denied Holy Communion for supporting abortion rights.
"This is a stubborn person Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke said after repeated admonitions to the spokesman's views on abortion in 2013.
As a practicing and respectful Catholic, this is a sacred reason for me when we talk about it talk, "Pelosi said about her views on abortion. "I do not think it should have anything to do with politics."
