Catholic League Denounces Pelosi’s ‘War on Catholic Schools’

May 19, 2020

In a statement released Monday, Catholic League president Bill Donohue declared that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wants to “cripple Catholic schools” by cutting off needed funding while subsidizing “illegal aliens and sanctuary cities.”

“Rep. Nancy Pelosi, who boasts of her Catholic schooling, is now seeking to cripple Catholic schools,” Dondhue states. “She has money in her bill, the Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions (HEROES) Act, for illegal aliens and sanctuary cities, but wants to rescind funding for Catholic schools that were granted money by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act…

“What Pelosi wants to do is immoral,” he continues. “She seeks to discriminate against taxpayers who send their children to Catholic schools, families who were equally impacted by the pandemic. She is also violating the Federal Emergency Management Act (FEMA) policy…

The coronavirus “does not discriminate,” Donohue concludes. “Pelosi does.”
