House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said on Wednesday that voting for Democrats will give “leverage” to illegal aliens, implying that the Democratic Party will take steps to help those who broke the law to enter the United States, Breitbart reports. While speaking, she also didn’t distinguish between legal and illegal aliens when describing amnesty and instead described it as “inevitable for America.”
During a news conference, Pelosi was speaking about the crucial midterm elections in November, and rather than speak about her ideas for helping hard-working Americans, the traitor made the case for using illegal aliens as ‘leverage’ to win back control of Congress.
Pelosi said people hearing more stories about immigrants will change their perception, adding that President Donald Trump has been swaying people to believe in the idea of limiting immigration to the U.S.
Here’s part of what she said:
“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 it is inconceivable, but 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. Because it gives hope, because of the leverage it gives to families who may have followed dad home for a family funeral and now can’t come back into the country.”
This is not the first time Pelosi has made troubling comments about prioritizing illegal aliens in America.
As noted by Conservative Daily Post in March, Pelosi criticized federal immigration officials for arresting hundreds of illegal aliens in a raid. She described the illegals as “hard-working, law-abiding” citizens who are “patriotic.”
With her remarks on Wednesday, Pelosi appears to be arguing that the Republican Party and President Trump are not compassionate towards immigrants and do not want to help those genuinely seeking a better life.
Despite that being obviously utterly false, the president has stated on numerous occasions that he supports “legal immigration” to the country. But because President Trump and the GOP have cracked down on illegal immigration and want enhanced border security, Pelosi apparently believes that’s unacceptable.
Pelosi also implied that if Democrats retake control of Congress in the midterms, it will give more “leverage” to illegal aliens. It’s unclear what she means specifically, but many conservatives will view that as her vowing to prioritize illegal aliens over Americans and direct more resources to them.
It’s unclear why Pelosi seems more concerned with slamming federal officials than protecting the actual Americans she claims to represent. Anyone who enters the U.S. without authorization broke the law, and many would agree that doesn’t make them “patriotic.”
Her comments on Wednesday offer a chilling glimpse into what the Democratic Party will do if they retake Congress in November.
