U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other Bay Area congressional representatives came together Monday morning to push for the immediate passage of the DREAM Act, but they were quickly shouted down by young immigrants protesting her conversations with President Donald Trump on immigration policy. They want more and weren't afraid to confront officials of the state.
They walked in shouting, "Undocumented and unafraid, we are the immigrant immigration movement."
Then it got really good.
When Pelosi had a brief moment to talk
she said,"What I interpret from what you are saying is that you do not want us to proceed with the DREAM Act because it is not comprehensive immigration reform. We all are fighting for comprehensive immigration reform. We have said to everyone - be very careful, report to us any deportations because they are telling us they are not happening. And wait a minute, wait a minute."
At that point the demonstrators started shouting over her.
Eventually, Pelosi said if they weren't going to listen she was going to walk out and she did that with fellow Congresswoman Barbara Lee and Congressman Jared Huffman.
On the sidewalk outside the building, she told ABC7 News they are fighting for comprehensive reform but the first act will be to pass something along the lines of the DREAM Act.
Wow, these are not wimpy beltarians who are afraid to rock even the smallest of boats.Here's what demonstrators want from @NancyPelosi and @realDonaldTrump. #dreamers pic.twitter.com/Nf26vYzmwo— Lyanne Melendez (@LyanneMelendez) September 18, 2017
And at this point, they aren't demanding anything but getting the government off their backs.
All libertarians should cheer and learn some lessons on how not to be wimps.
