House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is an anti America idiot. Pelosi said that illegal immigrant parents who brought their children to the U.S. in defiance of the law “did a great thing,” giving the country an infusion of successful young people. Pelosi’s comments strike a dissonant note from many analysts, who while saying the Dreamers are sympathetic since they had no say in the decision, say the parents do deserve blame for creating the problem.
The comments came after she was shouted down by protesters earlier this week who interrupted her at an event, and demanded she do more to protect all illegal immigrants. Mrs. Pelosi, at her weekly press conference in Washington said she does want to protect a broader swath of illegal immigrants, but that’s not the debate at this point.
President Trump’s decision earlier this month to phase out the legally questionable Obama-era deportation amnesty for young illegal immigrants, known as DACA, has ignited a fierce push in Congress to grant a more permanent legal status for the Dreamers. Most lawmakers say they believe the children deserve special consideration because they are without blame, having been brought to the U.S. as minors without any say. Those lawmakers say the children shouldn’t be punished for their parents’ decisions.
She said Democrats are rallying around a bill
that would greatly expand the number of illegal immigrants eligible for
legal status beyond the DACA program. Any illegal immigrant who came to
the U.S. under age 18, who has been in the U.S. for four years and who
has worked toward a high school diploma could qualify. According
to the bill, even those who came on their own and weren’t brought by parents
— some of those who streamed into the U.S. as part of the Unaccompanied
Alien Children (UAC) surge of the Obama years — would qualify.
