Suggested title: Pelosi’s Beloved Illegals Have Turned Against Her
Subheading: Pelosi has been giving up as many inches as she can for years, but those that want miles are calling her out for not giving enough.
When you give away the farm without putting up anything resembling a fight, it won’t be long before others appear on your doorstep to demand that you give away even more stuff.
That simple concept was on full display yesterday, and the recipient of that message seemed downright flabbergasted.
House minority leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has been fighting the good fight – as she sees it – for illegal immigrants, but it seems that she hasn’t been doing enough.
It turns out there are illegals out there that want even more.
NBC Bay Area reports:
Several dozen young immigrants shouted down the top House Democrat, following her recent conversations with President Donald Trump over the future of a program that grants many of them legal status.
“We are immigrant youth, undocumented and unafraid,” they chanted, taking over a scheduled press conference Pelosi, along with Reps. Barbara Lee and Jared Huffman, organized to call for the immediate passage of the Dream Act, a federal proposal that offered many of the same protections as the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, but was never approved by Congress.
Hey, if the so-called dreamers get all this protection, why can’t we get the same?
That question inspired this group of protesters to act and stand up for what they believe in, and Pelosi was not prepared to deal with it – at all.
The group also called Pelosi a liar.
“You’re fighting deportation,” the group asked, over and over again.
“Yes, I’m, yes, I’m,” Pelosi responded.
“You’re a liar, you’re a liar,” protesters said, attacking her about her efforts to stop deportation.
“You don’t know what you’re talking about,” a visibly upset Pelosi responded.
For most folks, yesterday’s jarring scene would serve as a gigantic wake up call.
We’re not too optimistic that it will have the same effect on Pelosi, but maybe there’s a tiny glimmer of hope that she’ll realize her line of thinking borders on the irrational.
You can check out the epic scene below, and be sure to keep it in mind next time Pelosi complains that we’re not doing enough for illegals.
