At House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s weekly briefing on Capitol Hill, she claims that God spoke to her and told her and other Democrats to fight to protect recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) as part of a deal to fund the government, reports Breitbart.
After Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer did not mention to the press during their opening remarks that conversations about amnesty for DACA recipients was discussed with the president when they met with him on Thursday.
The reporter asked if the Democratic leaders had “changed your mind at all about being willing to accept some border wall funding or immigration crackdown funding within a DREAM Act fix?
Pelosi at first got kind of defensive on the question, saying that “we said to the president the night he agreed to the DACA legislation that we have a responsibility to protect our border and we think there are many things we can do, working together to do that, and members have been working in a bipartisan way to address that.”
Pelosi was adamant about not making the recipients of DACA being the one who pays the price for the failure of Congress to come to a bipartisan agreement: “So, we’re not backing off anything, and including meeting the needs of protecting our border. We are not going to turn this country into a reign of terror of domestic enforcement, and have the DACA. The DREAMers pay that price.”
Pelosi still tries to remain optimistic though and is now reverting to saying that God is on the side of the Democrats.
“‘But I’m optimistic. I always have been. God is with us on this. Our country is great. We know their greatness springs from the vitality that newcomers bring to our country. Eighty percent at least of the American people support the DREAMers,’ Pelosi said.”
Then the House minority leader gets on a weird tangent about a “Holiday party” versus a “Christmas Party.”
“‘Some members at the president’s holiday event the other night—he calls it a holiday event, by the way—it wasn’t a Christmas party, it was a holiday event. Republican members were saying to me, ‘This is 80 percent in my district, people support the DREAMers.’ I had some of their spouses say, ‘We have to get the DREAM Act.’ Again, this is bipartisan support. We can find our common ground,’ Pelosi said.”
That’s crazy Pelosi for you. Going on weird tangents and claiming that God is speaking to her about saving illegal immigrants, and that is who Democrats are trusting to lead them. God help them.
