Nancy Pelosi: Enforce Our Immigration Laws? #ChildPlease

The Left WANTS OPEN BORDERS!!! Why would they want to enforce our interior immigration laws?

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) got torn into on Twitter after asking what the “point” was of enforcing interior immigration laws and claiming that a person’s illegal immigration status does not constitute their deportation.

While discussing immigration policy during an event in New York on Monday, Pelosi — first elected to the House in 1987 — claimed that she believed President Donald Trump‘s postponed Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids were “outside the circle of civilized human behavior” and “appalling.”

She then questioned what the “point” was of enforcing “interior” immigration laws.

Watch the video here:


“We have legislation to go forward to address those needs, but in terms of interior enforcement, what’s the – what’s the point?” Pelosi asked.

While discussing her phone call with the president last week regarding his planned ICE raids, the speaker also claimed during the event that an individual’s “violation of status” did not serve as a “reason” to deport them from the country:

“So that is really kind of what happened. He didn’t say what he was going to do, but the president said, ‘Oh, I’ll let you know, I’ll let you know.’ Went into, ‘Well, people broke the laws.’ A violation of status is not a reason for deportation. That’s just not so.”

Watch below:


Under U.S. law, a person who has overstayed their visa — people who accounted for 62 percent of undocumented immigrants from 2016-2017 — for more than 180 days will face deportation proceedings.

Some users on Twitter were not impressed with what the speaker said, calling her out for her “total, utter nonsense.”

 

 

 

 

The speaker’s comments came the same day that she agreed to hold a vote on border legislation to provide aid to alleviate the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border.

As IJR Red previously reported, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway called on Pelosi and the House Democrats to do “their job” and address the nation’s “broken” immigration policy.
