As they say, elections have consequences. Now that Nancy Pelosi and Democrats are taking control of the House, they are going right back to their old ways. Pelosi is already talking about amnesty.
Pelosi: ‘Now We Can Talk About’ Comprehensive Amnesty Bill
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said on Thursday that “now” is the time to talk about comprehensive amnesty legislation because Democrats have regained control of the House.
Pelosi, who also said she is “100%” sure that she will regain her Speakership, told CNN’s Chris Cuomo that “now we can talk about how we can come together and put together bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform.”
Conceding that illegal immigration is a losing issue for Republicans, Pelosi revealed that she suggested to Democrats running for Congress to not get into fights with the Trump administration on immigration and instead “stick with lower healthcare costs, bigger paychecks, integrity in government” so they could win their races.
“Everything is about timing,” said Pelosi, who also told Democrats to “just win, baby,” even if it meant telling voters that they would not support her.
Pelosi noted that the Gang of Eight’s comprehensive amnesty bill passed the Senate three years ago but then-House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) refused to bring it up in the House.
Thank goodness Republicans retained control of the Senate. Pelosi won’t get far on this.
