Nancy Pelosi on ‘Un-American’ Immigration Law

Posted:

At a recent San Fransisco event, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi denounced the Immigration and Customs Enforcement arrests of illegal immigrants. The raids, which included ICE officials separating children from their parents, was denounced by Pelosi as “un-American.”

Nancy Pelosi also recently told a group of both legal and illegal immigrants and their families that enforcement of existing immigration laws, as currently practiced, is “un-American.”

“Who in this country would not want to change a policy of kicking in doors in the middle of the night and sending a parent away from their families?” Pelosi told a mostly Hispanic gathering at St. Anthony’s Church in San Francisco. “It must be stopped….What value system is that? I think it’s un-American. I think it’s un-American.”

In 2003, Pelosi accused ICE of terrorizing workers after agents raiding numerous Wal-Mart stores for hiring and contracting undocumented janitors. During the 2008 primary elections, Barack Obama also reported that some communities were terrorized by ICE “raids. ”

At a news conference last week, Pelosi clarified her explanation that ICE raids that separated parents from their children in the middle of the night are un-American, and she still stands by that.

In the past years, ICE’s efforts have targeted ‘immigration fugitives,’ people who have violated a judge’s deportation order.

“You are special people. You’re here on a Saturday night to take responsibility for our country’s future. That makes you very, very patriotic,” said Pelosi on Saturday night in front of a cheering crowd at St. Anthony’s. The crowd was chanting “Si, se puede” which means “Yes we can.”
