Nancy Pelosi has said some pretty disturbing things during her tenure, but this one beats them all.
After the mayor of Oakland was ripped for tipping off illegals about the upcoming ICE raid, Pelosi took her back by calling the ICE raid against criminal illegals “unjust and cruel.”
Read that again so it settles in there nice and cozy… she said a raid to capture illegals that were convicted criminals, some of them for violent crimes, was both “unjust and cruel.”
Mayor Libby Schaaf has been getting roasted in the media as well as by our Justice Department for tipping off residents that she had been alerted to ICE activity in the area.
While many Americans are calling for her to be brought up on charges for obstruction of justice or aiding these illegals in escaping, liberals are flocking to her defense.
Keep in mind, the people targeted in this raid had prior convictions, such as rape or gun possessions. These were not just your run of the mill illegals.
ICE released a statement saying that as many as 800 illegals were able to avoid capture due to Schaaf’s warning.
In addition to the ICE rebuke, Jeff Sessions announced the Department of Justice filed a lawsuit against the entire state of California citing three recently passed laws that violate federal immigration policies.
Sessions stated, “The Department of Justice and the Trump Administration are going to fight these unjust, unfair, and unconstitutional policies.”
The policies to which Sessions is referring forbid local police officers and business owners from helping the federal agency in rounding up these illegals. The laws even make it illegal for federal agents to go into employee only areas of businesses to search for illegals.
So, think about that…
John Smith tips off ICE that Acme Bakery has 10 illegals working there. ICE heads over to the business to check it out and the illegals run into the employee only area where ICE is forbidden to go to round them up. California laws are actually protecting not only illegals, but the business owners that are hiring them.
Pelosi continues to miss the point, however, and continues to call these illegals just immigrants rather than the criminals they actually are.
Nancy Pelosi stated, “The people of California will not be bowed by the Trump administration’s brazen aggression and intimidation tactics. Californians will continue to proudly keep our doors open to the immigrants who make America more American. We will fight this sham lawsuit and will fight all cowardly attacks on our immigrant communities.”
Hate to tell you Nancy, but we are not talking about the law-abiding LEGAL immigrants, but rather the illegals that are committing crimes.
I know I am glad I don’t live in California, but I would love to hear how the citizens of that state feel about one of their elected representatives sticking up for criminal illegals and basically advocating they be allowed to remain free on the street.
