Today’s quote comes to us from House Minority Leader, and would-be Speaker Of The House, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
Here, from yesterday’s press conference in El Paso Texas, is the key part of what she had to say about facilitating/making legal the entry of people who jump the border and illegally enter the United States:
“Because this is the right thing to do, I have confidence that we will get where we need to go. But everything is about time and we want to shorten the distance, as your question indicated, between what we think is inevitable for America, they think is inconceivable.
“We believe that we can get this done. We are not going to be able to get it done under the Republican leadership in Congress.”
“We believe that we will have leverage when we win in November. And why is that important? Because it gives leverage to every family, to every mom who courageously brought her child across the desert to escape, to escape death, rape, gang violence, and the rest.”
Yes, Nancy, it gives leverage to every well-meaning desperate mom who brought her child…etc.
But you forgot to mention that it gives exactly the same leverage to everyone else, including MS-13 gang members, drug dealers and serial criminals who have been deported numbers of times already.
I award Nancy Pelosi Quote Of The Day honors for making the Democrat platform on illegal immigration perfectly clear for all to see.
If you agree with her, you should seriously consider voting for her party – the one that is on board with this policy. If you don’t agree with her, you should seriously consider voting for the other party, the one that is not on board with this policy.
Thank you, Nancy.
