House Speaker Nancy Pelosi echoed the views of various Democratic presidential hopefuls saying that illegal immigration should not be a crime. 

“You cannot say anybody coming across the border is breaking the law,” Pelosi said on Thursday in her weekly press conference.

“Not until there is a determination whether they can stay or not.”

The House Speaker shared the views of certain presidential candidates like Julián Castro, who called for the repeal of the specific statute.

“The reason that they're separating these little children from their families is that they're using Section 1325 of that act which criminalizes coming across the border to incarcerate the parents and then separate them,” Castro said on the debate stage.

“Some of us on this stage have called to end that section, to terminate it. And I want to challenge all of the candidate to do that.”

Pelosi also blamed declining visa allowances for the tragic and highly politicized drowning of a Central American migrant and his daughter in the Rio Grande this week.

“I just think it’s such shame for that to be the face of America across the world,” Pelosi said.

Pelosi added that illegal immigrants should be allowed entry into the US and be allowed to remain until immigration judges decide their fate.

“We don’t have to undermine who we are as a country by saying it’s a crime to engage in an internationally recognized opportunity to make your case, to come into a country. Any country,” Pelosi said.

Earlier this week, Pelosi blasted President Donald Trump's handling of the ongoing migrant crisis by asking, "what's the point" in enforcing immigration laws in the United States.

Speaker Pelosi was attacking President Trump over the planned raids from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

ICE raids to deport illegal aliens from the US were scheduled to happen over the weekend but delayed following public leaks of sensitive information about the locations of the raids.
