House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) appeared during a Town Hall on Wednesday and spoke with CNN’s Chris Cuomo. She answered questions and made statements about the highly debated “Dreamers.”
According to The Washington Free Beacon, during the speaking event, Pelosi said: “Our Dreamers, they make America dream again.” She continued, “They’re so lovely and we, frankly, owe a debt to your parents for bringing you here to be such a brilliant part of our future.” What makes this disturbing is that Pelosi, as a government official, is not only sending a message saying that it is okay to break federal law, but is also thanking them for doing so.
The controversy stems from Obama’s 2012 Executive Order Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). The order states that if parents bring children into the country illegally, the children are allowed to stay.
When Obama leveled this order, he seemed to have missed the part where the president is not supposed to enact Executive Orders as it relates to immigration policy. President Trump worked to wind down the policy and passed it to Congress to work on.
The goal is to have Congress figure out what happens next, which is a tad bit different than the narrative that the Left is pushing. President Trump isn’t rounding up children and sending them back over the border; he is just putting DACA to the test and exposing it to Congress for legislation.
He has, however, made it so that no more DACA applications can be filed. Those filed up until his announcement are still in queue and will still be considered. Pelosi, of course, acts on emotion instead of facts and thinks that all illegal immigrants should be welcomed with open arms.
During her town hall speech, she went on to praise both the Dreamers and their families. It is hard to imagine anyone telling tens of thousands of people that they should break federal law, yet, that is what Pelosi seemed to do.
Pelosi has a lot of making up to do with these Dreamers. As The New York Post noted, Pelosi was shouted down in her own state by Dreamers during a news conference.
The Dreamers believed that Democrats are complicit with President Trump’s review of DACA. In other words, people who are here illegally are bullying lawmakers for not obeying their will.
US lawmakers are supposed to represent the will of the American people — legal residents and citizens. Instead of being grateful that President Trump didn’t throw DACA out the window and start deportations right away, they are still finding reasons to complain. Now, Pelosi is trying to gain her Dreamer following back during this town hall speech.
Pelosi loves the dreamers. Does she love them enough to get a proper law passed to protect them?
It speaks volumes that Pelosi was so intimidated by the illegal immigrants when they shouted her down, that she is now catering to them as if she owes them something.
It is quite easy to understand. There is a legal process for entering the United States, and those unwilling to follow this process show complete disregard for one of the nation’s most important laws.
None of that matters to Pelosi as her pandering reaches an all-time high.
