Original Title:Pelosi Assists in Holy Week Foot-Washing Ritual
To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco.
Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship."
The Democratic leader's ceremony coincides with Pope Francis' similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week. As he did last year, the pope broke with the tradition of washing only priests' feet during the Mass for the Last Supper - this time, washing the feet of disabled people.

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, left, prepares to pour water on the feet of Yamile Cruz, 10, left, with the help of Bishop Marc Andrus, right, April 17, 2014 during a public foot-washing ritual honoring immigrants in the Mission at St. John Evangelist Episcopalian Church in San Francisco, Calif. Elected San Francisco officials including House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi joined together to take part in the ritual of foot-washing featuring immigrants and people in the community.
She should be honoring the dignity and work of the average American. How amnesty is going to save $1 Trillion seems a secret not to be shared with the public.
She so full of herself.
Self - starving or self - deportation?
Either way, continued strong US Citizen hostility toward Illegal Alien Invaders from Mexico is working, to use an Obama phrase.
Our US jobless rate would go to zero when the last Illegal Alien Invader from Mexico AND their children return to Mexico.
The only Border Reform that needs to be done is to force Federal Politicians in both political parties to strictly enforce EXISTING Federal Border Laws.
Her husband depends on cheap labor for his vineyards and hotels/
Hello USA. if you want to save a trillion dollars...
Get RID of Nanzi Pelousey!!!!
How can it reduce it when wages they make will allow them to get away without paying taxes, as well as cause millions of people to become dependents of the state?
Stupidity on the hoof.
If Nanz had truely humbled herself before God,
there would have been NO photographers present...
Just another photo op of the ruling class.
She’s a cultural rapist who’s goal in life seems to be to set new records for shamelessness.
While Pelosi is a fruitloop [ and I note wasn’t able to do this in a Catholic church but had to find an Episcopal one ...... ]
Allowing taxation of a current class of invisible workers, via medicare and medicaid tax, would increase revenue. The issues facing social security are a lack of children to support the aging workers. The way to fix that is with imported workers that we then tax.
Also as they are allowed to advance in job status they may start paying income tax too.
The problem now is they are unable to work anywhere that pays any decent amount of $$. This in turn keeps them in poverty that we are worried about.

... she had to.....she got caught payin the kids 2 bucks an hour at the vineyard, stompin the purple ones.
Although I must say there is probably a good
political cartoon in this, some homeless guy on the
street being hassled by his friends for his clean feet
and he’s saying, “But they were washed by Nanzi Pelousy!!!”
A barefoot squeegee man with a sign...
“Have your windshield cleaned by the feet washed by
Nanzi Pelousey! $5 “.
For pelosi to prove humility, she’d have to wash feet not part of a photo OP or a progressive dream bill. How about washing Rush Limbaugh’s feet?
... revenue that would promptly be spent on welfare benefits for the worker's families.
Any way you slice it amnesty will cost us trillions.
I suggest their families are already on welfare to a large extent. I believe, right or wrong, that they would earn more $$ if they were legal and hence would reduce welfare need.
The conservative notion that economy isn’t a static number of jobs and that people will ultimately better themselves.
Actually, I think she is full of something else. Something that tends to have a certain foul stench to it.
More illegals - more immigrants - means increasing socialism everywhere they collect.
So long individual sovereignty. Goodbye American experiment.
The difference is CA is still illegals.
