A couple days after being shouted down by an angry mob of DREAMers, Nancy Pelosi is still trying to make amends for having done the unthinkable: disagree with a key ‘constituency’.
Yes, apparently illegal aliens in California are now considered constituents.
Worse still is that Pelosi declared in her weekly presser yesterday that illegal parents of DREAMers ‘did a great thing’ by dragging their children across the desert illegally to enter into a life of exploitation and tenuous legal status.
Meanwhile, the nation’s broken immigration structure continues to penalize immigrants who choose to follow the law.
Once upon a time, it was a great and very common thing, in this our nation of laws, to actually respect and obey the rule of law.
Not so much these days.
Here’s more from Redstate…
Fresh off getting chased out of a press conference by pro-amnesty activists, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is still prostrating herself at the feet of the Dreamer crowd.
During her weekly press conference on Wednesday, Pelosi — a lawmaker — said that illegal immigrant parents “did a great thing” by bringing their children to the U.S., despite it being against the law to do so.
“These families did a great thing for our country bringing these kids here, who are working, who are in the military, who are in school, who are a brilliant part of our future,” said Pelosi.
Pelosi said she’s still at odds with the mob that raided her press conference with Reps. Barbara Lee and Jared Huffman on Monday.
“While I respect the concerns of the people who came to our meeting, we are not in a situation where we can say all or none,” said Pelosi. “We have to save the Dreamers now.”
Pelosi then called the Dreamers — illegal immigrants brought into the states as children — as a “constituency.”
“The constituency is there for our country,” added Pelosi. “It’s success will lead to other success.”
To refresh the noggin, “constituency” means a body of voters with the power to elect a representative in government. Illegal immigrants do not have the power to vote in our country.
