Nancy Pelosi is entirely out of touch.
After spending three decades in Congress, she has forgotten who she is supposed to support.
And instead, she just admitted who the Democrats really are supporting.
Who Do Democrats Really Support?
While Democrats claim to support everyday Americans, their policy on the border makes that hard to believe.
They often spend their time advocating for fully open borders in rhetoric, but generally, have to claim publicly that they support some form of border patrol.
One Democrat who is famous for doing that is former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
During a press conference in El Paso, TX she stated that voting for Democrats gives “leverage” to illegal immigrants.
She also went after Republicans who believe in secure borders, stating that voting for Democrats will allow them to have the leverage to pass their pro-illegal immigrant agenda, stating:
“We believe that we will have leverage [on immigration] when we win in November. And why that’s important.”
Just prior to making those statements, Pelosi went on about her belief that those who support stricter immigration laws do so simply because they have not met an immigrant family.
She then stated that anybody who has a “positive view” of immigrants should support Democrats in order to give those who cross the border illegally leverage.
By leverage, she is almost certainly alluding towards how Democrats would allow those illegal immigrants to gain citizenship status in the United States.
Nancy Pelosi’s Sanctuary State
In the state of California, where Pelosi lives, illegal immigrants are already welcomed with open arms.
The state itself is known as a “sanctuary state,” so those who are illegal are able to stay in the state without fear of punishment from state or local authorities.
That is as close to open borders one can get, and is a policy that Pelosi supports.
Since President Trump has been elected, the Democrats have gotten more and more extreme with their pro-illegal immigrant rhetoric.
In the past, even politicians like Nancy Pelosi supported stricter immigration laws.
It was Democrats that pushed for a border fence and used many of the same arguments that Trump used.
A Shift To The Left
But in the past few years, the Democrats have taken a sharp shift to the left, with immigration being perhaps the most extreme issue they have taken up.
With more extreme people like the openly socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez joining Congress in the coming months, the far-left shift seems to only be continuing.
Now there are high-profile Democrats calling for abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and bashing the agency tasked with securing our border and catching violent criminals.
If any of these Democrats had to live in a community ravaged by violent illegal immigrant gangs, they would almost certainly have a different view, and in the past did.
Now it is clear that the Democrats are more open to supporting illegal immigrants than everyday Americans, especially those in Middle America.
But thankfully, President Trump is giving those people a voice.
Do you support President Trump in his fight to secure the border?
