House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi attacked "all people of faith" in the country, calling them out for "hypocrisy" over illegal immigration policies, The Washington Times reported Friday.

Pelosi also singled out Attorney General Jeff Sessions for "hypocrisy," who on Thursday in a speech to law enforcement officials maintained following the rule of law was a biblical principle.

"The very hypocrisy of the attorney general to quote the Bible, the hypocrisy of all people of faith in our country not to clamor for what the administration is doing to end — whether it's to deprive the Dreamers of the respect they deserve or whether it's taking babies away from their mothers and fathers," Pelosi said Friday.

Sessions put the responsibility on immigrants, who he explained were breaking the law and endangering their children, adding the Apostle Paul made a "clear and wise command in Romans:13 to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained them for the purpose of order."

"We are not sending children to jail with their parents," Sessions said. "Noncitizens who cross our borders unlawfully, between our ports of entry, with children are not an exception. They are the ones who broke the law. They are the ones who endangered their own children on their trek. The United States, on the other hand, goes to extraordinary lengths to protect them while the parents go through a short detention period."

President Trump weighed in on the issue, reminding that current policies regarding the separation of children of illegal immigrants from their parents who crossed the U.S. border existed under former President Barack Obama. He also called on Democrats to work with Republicans in Congress for changes to immigration law.

"Democrats can fix their forced family breakup at the Border by working with Republicans on new legislation, for a change! This is why we need more Republicans elected in November. Democrats are good at only three things, High Taxes, High Crime and Obstruction. Sad!" Trump tweeted Saturday.

"The Democrats are forcing the breakup of families at the Border with their horrible and cruel legislative agenda," Trump tweeted Friday. "Any Immigration Bill MUST HAVE full funding for the Wall, end Catch & Release, Visa Lottery and Chain, and go to Merit Based Immigration. Go for it! WIN!"

Pelosi also urged "right thinking" Republicans to bring an end to current immigration policies, which she called "un-American activities that is being put forth by the president of the United States, by the Republicans in Congress and by this attorney general," The Daily Caller reported.

"For this administration to pose as people of faith and pose as people who care about family and children is of a height of hypocrisy that knows no bounds," Pelosi added.
