Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says the Republican response to the border crisis and immigration policy treats "people in a way that is almost subhuman."
"The fact is the way it is happening in Washington, D.C., is not away any Republican I know would take pride in," Pelosi said during a town hall meeting at the College of Marin last week. "This is really something — how can they talk about all of their religious fervor and how they respect the dignity and worth of every person, the spark of divinity that exists in everyone of us, including themselves hopefully, and treat people in a way that is almost subhuman? It is really a remarkable thing."
