House Minority Leader, Nancy Pelosi, is getting a taste of her own medicine. Blaming her for deportations, illegals were shouting in her face during a press conference on Monday. Planning to discuss new proposals, Pelosi was visibly shaken by the loud protesters. After telling the crowd “it’s clear you don’t want answers,” she walked-out.
Upholding a campaign promise, President Trump is rescinding Obama’s “Deferred Action for Immigrant Childhood Arrivals” legislation. However, he is delaying implementation of his order to allow Democrats to come-up with an alternative. Their alternative is the Dream Act.
Significantly, the Dream Act, will grant protections and provide a path to U.S. citizenship for the nearly 800,000 people who currently benefit from DACA. But, that isn’t enough according to the crowd. Despite efforts by Democrats, illegals are demanding protections for all 11 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S.
The group of angry immigrants said as much, while storming Pelosi’s press conference. “Democrats – created – out of control – deportation machine!” yelled one protester. In addition, suggesting that Democrats are using them, illegals made their feelings clear to Pelosi. “We are not your bargaining chip,” they were chanting at the Democratic leader.

Nevertheless, showing signs of frustration, Pelosi could not even speak over the shouting crowd. After noting to her aides that “these people don’t want answers,” she walked away from the podium. However, the protesters continued their chants in her absence.
Interestingly, Pelosi is a staunch supporter of illegal immigrants. Which, makes their attack on her even more confusing. Nonetheless, their open display of hostility is evidence of a bigger problem. One can only wonder why they aren’t making these demands of their own countries.
Could it be because their homeland does not want them back? Given that Mexico is spending $50 million to help keep illegals in America, we’d day the answer is yes.
Regardless, there is something incredibly ironic about a group of criminals insisting they be protected. They are, thanks to leftists, openly breaking the law. Even worse, they honestly think they deserve a reward for their efforts.
