U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-CA
Rep. Nancy Pelosi is seeking to cripple Catholic schools. 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. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops opposes her effort.
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.
In January 2018, FEMA released new rules to direct funding to houses of worship damaged by natural disasters. The rules said, “activities of community centers or houses of worship open to the general public, without regard to their secular or religious nature” qualify for federal funding.
