Nancy Pelosi is wasting no time getting to work on the Democrats’ favorite pet issue. She wants to pass amnesty for illegal immigrants as quickly as possible. They’ve got to shore up their voter base for 2020, after all.
Nancy Pelosi Promises to Pass Illegal Alien Amnesty via Dream Act
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) promised over the weekend to pass the Dream Act in the new Congress, which would provide amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants.
Pelosi, who will likely become the next speaker of the House in January, said in a statement on Saturday that she will work to pass the Dream Act with her new House Democrat majority.
“America draws strength from our long, proud heritage as a nation of immigrants. In the Majority, Democrats will work to reverse the Republicans’ destructive anti-immigrant agenda,” Pelosi contended. “Our House Democratic Majority will once again pass the Dream Act to end the uncertainty and fear inflicted on patriotic young men and women across the country.”
Pelosi released the statement in response to a letter from the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, which urged Pelosi to take up legislation in the first 100 days of the new term to protect Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) illegal aliens and Temporary Protected Status (TPS) refugees.
Luckily, Republicans still control the Senate, so Pelosi might find this isn’t as easy as she’s hoping.
