On Wednesday House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi filibustered on the floor of the House of Representatives to shed a light on illegal aliens.
Not for the damage that they cause this nation, but to thank them.
Using her advantage as party leader, in the House only the Speaker and party leaders can hold the floor indefinitely unlike the Senate, Pelosi decided to take a stand for the plight of said ‘Dreamers.’
These so called sleepy thinkers are illegal aliens who were brought into the USA as minors.
“I say to their parents: Thank you for bringing these Dreamers to America. We’re in your debt for the courage it took, for you to take the risk, physically, politically, in every way, to do so,” she said.
Yes, you heard her right.
Pelosi is thanking illegal immigrants for coming into our country illegally.
Via Breitbart: Democrats actually failed to pass any legislation on immigration when Pelosi was Speaker, though her party controlled both Capitol Hill and the White House from 2009 to 2011.
President Barack Obama created the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in 2012, using — or abusing — his executive powers of prosecutorial discretion on a massive scale to shield some 700,000 applicants from deportation.
Pelosi declared Wednesday that she would speak until Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) promised a vote on legislation to protect the “Dreamers” — something he has already promised to do, at least with regard to Republican legislation on the issue.
