In what has to be a first in the United States, the reigning Speaker of the House of Representatives spent her weekly address giving legal advice and counsel to illegal aliens, telling them how they can avoid deportation. Speaking ahead of planned nationwide raids by ICE, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Thursday that immigrants in the country illegally did not need to obey warrants from federal immigration authorities.
“An ICE deportation warrant is not the same as a search warrant,” Pelosi counseled. “If that is the only document ICE brings to a home raid, agents do not have the legal right to enter a home. If ICE agents don’t have a warrant signed by a judge, a person may refuse to open the door and let them in.”
Also on Thursday, Pelosi met with members of the House Democratic caucus, advising them to spend the weekend distributing “know your rights” information to illegal aliens in their respective districts. She said she would reach out to religious leaders in districts with high alien populations to make sure they were on board with protecting these migrants from the long arm of the law.
“They were very concerned that this goes too far because these raids were not what they signed up for with President Trump. And I think their calls to the president made a difference,” Pelosi said of faith leaders she’d spoken to. “Hopefully the president will think again about it or these groups will weigh in once again.
“Families belong together,” she said. “Every person in America has rights.”
Is that so? Well, what about the rights of American citizens, Ms. Pelosi? Because it’s all too uncommon for Democrats to talk about those these days. It seems that every time we turn around, the Democratic Party is laser-focused on “brown kids in cages” or the poor downtrodden people in caravans or providing healthcare to the millions of illegal aliens currently living in this country. If you’re not opening up sanctuary cities, you’re doing everything in your power to stop the Trump administration from figuring out how many non-citizens there are in America.
For his part, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said that Pelosi could blame herself for the impending raids.
“Tell me one thing that this majority has done in the amount of time that the speaker called the president and asked him to delay it? Has there been a hearing? Has there been a bill produced? Have we asked to stay over a weekend and solve this problem?” McCarthy asked on Thursday. “I think if the president actually saw the House actually taking action, he probably would delay even further to make sure the problem gets solved.”
Democrats just want to stand in the peanut gallery and obstruct, obstruct, obstruct. If “taking action” means doing something to actually stop illegal immigration, you can count them out.
Democrat voters, we hope you’re watching. We hope you understand what – and who – your party really stands for.
And if you do, and you vote for these degenerates anyway, then to hell with all of you.
