Showing just how far from reality she operates, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday waved off the growing border disaster by explaining that President Joe Biden’s policies are all about a “love of children.”

“I trust the Biden administration’s policy to be based on humanitarian and love of children rather than political points or red meat for their — for their Republican base,” she said.

More: “The difference between this administration and one before is great in terms of how we meet the needs of these children,” including having “a humanitarian reception for them wherever they are.”

Reality check: Biden’s policies and irresponsible rhetoric have prompted a surge of unaccompanied children crossing the border. In February, 29,792 kids crossed without their parents, 2,942 of them under 12, according to US Customs and Border Protection. That’s up from 4,995 in December, when the surge began, and it’s expected to more than double to all-time-record levels.

And that’s forcing the administration to hold them in the same “cages” that Democrats vilified the last president for. They called it a “crime against humanity” then, but now it’s “love”?

Sending a green light for people to start young children on a perilous 1,000-mile journey isn’t any kind of love; it’s madness. Democrats should not be encouraging it. But Pelosi’s too wrapped up in her political talking points to realize.
