Nancy Pelosi, Doris Matsui and Democrats Urge DREAM Act Passage

22 September 2017

As the Chronicle reported, in speaking to reporters, she commented that she understands where the activists are coming from, and that she "understands their fear". President Donald Trump has given Congress six months to come up with an immigration reform package if it wants to continue protecting 800,000 immigrants brought into the US illegally as children. Obama's unilateral executive action had no legitimate continuing legal authority, but Tribe's lawsuit claims that it is somehow unconstitutional for Trump to discontinue the program.

"Democrats created an out-of-control deportation machine", the protesters yelled.

"We demand accountability. Democrats are not the resistance of Trump". After smiling and occasionally trying to speak through much of the protest, an aggravated Pelosi told the protesters to "just stop it, now", shortly before she was led out of the room. Trump said in early September he will halt the program if Congress does not act to continue it.

Rep. Adam Schiff on Sunday criticized President Donald Trump for having "no ideology" other than being "pro-Trump", but said Democrats should work with him when their interests "align".

Some had seen DACA as a bargaining chip to get enough Democrats to vote for a USA taxpayer-funded big border wall between the US and Mexico that the president had promised his base.

Trump will need all the support he can get, because establishment Republican leaders are already pushing back.

Asked whether the protesters she faced were emblematic of wider Democratic Party concerns about her discussions with Trump, Pelosi said that from a political standpoint, she has no choice.

"I know some people think this hurts the cause of undocumented folks, but undocumented people will always be scapegoated", Luis Serrano, one of the group's organizers, told the San Francisco Chronicle.

The will of the American people is to protect our borders and to deport illegal aliens who should not be here. This game by the left has continued even though the U.S. Supreme Court has repeatedly slapped down and reversed the liberal lower court rulings and held in favor of Trump, often unanimously.

But she, too, has no problem with Trump agreeing to let the Dreamers stay in the United States, so long as they don't commit crimes.

The leader of California's state Senate, Democrat Kevin de Leon, suggested the comments made Feinstein complicit in what he called Trump's "reckless behavior".

"You're a liar, you're a liar", protesters said, attacking her about her efforts to stop deportation. I'm a DACA recipient and I do not want to be represented in this way. Liar!"VIDEO: Young immigrants shout down Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi When the Democratic leader found a moment to speak over the chorus of chants 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". Campos said her parents brought her to the United States from Mexico before her first birthday. She said protecting the families of Dreamers is "the next logical step" if Congress can secure a DACA fix. "It's all or none".
