CNN’s Ana Navarro claims it was “utmost cynicism” by Attorney General Jeff Sessions to quote the bible to defend separating immigrant children from their families.
Navarro stated, “Nobody is saying we want an open country. What we are simply saying is we don’t want 2-year-olds torn from the arms of their mothers and crying.”
“The consequence of that is we’re going to have 2,000 children who will have incredible damage, emotional damage. The consequence of that is human suffering.”
“It is the utmost hypocrisy, it is the utmost cynicism to quote scripture—the same scripture that was quoted to justify slavery to justify that. Shame on any Christian that is doing that.”
Sessions had at one point stated, “I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained them for the purpose of order.”
