A few days ago, the pope and Obama teamed up for what was clearly a publicity stunt designed to make Americans want to let more illegals in. Yesterday, Pope Francis took things even further when he lectured Americans on issues like immigration, abortion, gay marriage, and the refugee crisis.
Earlier this week, a 5 year-old girl named Sophie Cruz rushed for the pope during a parade and begged him to save her illegal parents. While liberals called this touching, it has now been exposed as an elaborate PR stunt.
According to Daily Mail, Full Rights for Immigrants Coalition had been planning this for over a year.
“We planned to do this from the moment we learned he was coming to the States,” said Juan Jose Gutierrez of the Full Rights for Immigrants Coalition. “We have been working for a while now trying to sensitize the American public that dealing with immigration is not just dealing with the people who came in without proper documents but that we also have … countless children whose parents are undocumented.”
Gutierrez went on to admit that his organization shamelessly uses children of illegals to promote their message.
“We have been looking for children to make the case that we as adults have been making for years,” he said, adding that Sophie was chosen because she “impressed us all so much that we felt she would be our best spokesman.”
Had Sophie been unsuccessful at meeting the pope in Washington D.C., the group would have flown the 5 year-old to New York City and then Philadelphia to try again.
We can’t say that we’re surprised that this was all a stunt. It’s sickening that this group is using a 5 year-old to push their shameful agenda.
