PELOSI: “It's about values that the president does not seem to share. And we saw this morning when he announced his heartless raids on families this coming Sunday. When he announced this before, I called -- God bless you -- some people of faith about this, evangelicals who support the president for other reasons, but who have been good on immigration issues, usually. And basically, they were very concerned that this goes too far. Because these raids were not what they signed up for with President Trump. And I think their calls to the president made a difference. Basically what they said to me is, on Sunday -- this is the Hispanic evangelicals -- on Sunday, west of the Mississippi, our people are are in church. And as they prepare to go to church, they feel very threatened and scared by these raids. So hopefully the president will think again about it or these groups will weigh in once again.”
