Apparently, Nancy Pelosi doesn’t know that Japanese people were put into internment camps by Franklin D. Roosevelt, a Democrat. During a recent press appearance, she implied that’s what Republicans are trying to do to Dreamers.

Pelosi Suggests GOP May Put Dreamers in Internment Camps, Compares Them to Japanese Americans During WWII
Pelosi joined the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus to praise Dreamers, young immigrants who were brought illegally to the U.S. as children, for “advancing the American dream with their courage and their optimism and their inspiration.” She thanked the lawmakers present for being there before she warned that Dreamers may face the same fate as Japanese Americans who were interned during World War II.
“A week and a half ago, I was in Chicago, and I saw this art exhibit that I was invited to see. It’s called ‘And then they came for me,’ and it’s about the internment of the Japanese-American patriots in our country who were interned into camps during World War II while their family members were fighting for freedom for America and for the world in World War II,” Pelosi said.
“And now they’re coming for the Dreamers,” she continued. “This is something—we owe these Dreamers for their patriotism, their courage, their optimism to come forward, but it’s about America too.”

Democrats never get called out for saying outrageous things like this.
