When the Democratic minority leaders of the Senate and House emerged from the White House in September, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi claimed that President Trump had agreed to a deal that would protect so-called Dreamers from deportation. The media spin implied that Trump has a soft spot for the illegal aliens who, we’re told, were brought to our country as children through no fault of their own.
But in fact no deal was reached, as the White House soon clarified. Trump later told reporters that “We’re not looking at citizenship” for Dreamers, and on Twitter he insisted that “CHAIN MIGRATION cannot be allowed to be part of any legislation on Immigration!”
The Dreamers are not children, as globalist opponents of border security pretend. Often those in favor of open borders can be heard referring to Dreamers as “kids” when typically they are adults in their 20s, or even older.
Back home in San Francisco during Congressional recess, Nancy Pelosi held a press conference at which she intended to introduce a carefully selected group of sympathetic Dreamers. Much to her dismay, she was confronted with a mob of 60 angry aliens who feared they would not qualify for the Dreamer deal with Trump.
“You’re not helping the cause,” Pelosi pleaded to the mob of “undocumented youth” who shouted her down. “Just stop it now!” Pelosi declared to the liberal protesters, who can never be appeased.
In the age of Trump, Pelosi knows that any hope of a deal depends on persuading the public that a handful of sympathetic young people are typical of the millions of illegal immigrants. “All of us or none of us,” the rioters chanted for nearly an hour.
The mob scene in San Francisco should have been enough to discredit any DACA deal, but even worse was what happened the same day at the federal courthouse a few blocks away from where Pelosi was prevented from speaking. There, famous leftwing Harvard Law professor Laurence Tribe, filed a massive lawsuit against President Trump, claiming that he has no right to phase out the DACA program.
