Illegal migrants “embody the best of our nation,” says the leader of the Democrats in the House of Representatives, Rep. Nancy Pelosi.
The flattery for migrants came December 21 as Pelosi urged the House Committee on Rules to include an amnesty for 3.25 million ‘dreamer’ illegals in the two-week budget resolution. According to Politico:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi urged the committee to add an amendment to the short-term spending bill that would attach the bipartisan DREAM Act, H.R. 3440 (115). Pelosi said Congress had a “duty and obligation” to protect undocumented immigrants …
“They embody the best of our nation: patriotism, hard work, perseverance,” Pelosi said of DREAMers. She added that Congress shouldn’t “leave them to celebrate the holidays in fear, watching their DACA protection expire.”
Pelosi’s for migrants flattery failed to persuade the GOP-majority panel, which rejected her proposal.
