One day after glowering and pouting her way through President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi held a news conference where she let fly with her predictably-hyperbolic partisan nonsense. Ignoring the president’s call for bipartisanship and unity, Pelosi made it clear that she was only interested in furthering the Democrat Party’s one true agenda, which is to divide this country along racial, ethnic, and gender lines until there’s no such thing as “America” any longer.
Pelosi said the chances of a deal to save the so-called Dreamers were dwindling because of Trump’s demand to bring an end to chain migration. Of course, Pelosi refuses to use the term, instead engaging in the left’s favorite practice: Using political correctness to confuse the issues. No, she uses the benign term “family reunification,” just as she uses “undocumented Americans” to describe people who came here illegally. And while this kind of Mad Libs approach to policy sounds laughable when you see it for what it is, the sad truth is that it works. Which is why, incidentally, political correctness is not just annoying – it’s an active threat to our country.
But we’re off the subject.
“Without any basis on evidence, data and the rest, he makes these statements about newcomers to our country and equating it in a criminal way. What was that about?” Pelosi asked. “It was — I wouldn’t say confusing. It was worse than that. It was dangerous what he said last night. It instilled fear. What he is doing brings tears to the eyes of the Statue of Liberty, and instills fear in the hearts of the people who are concerned about our Dreamers.”
Brings tears to the eyes of the Statue of Liberty? Really??
This kind of nonsense might stir the hearts of her San Francisco constituents, but it’s unlikely to fly in the rest of the country, where people are quickly losing their patience with the Democratic Party’s willingness to put illegal immigrants over the citizens of this nation. If you want to save the Dreamers so badly, Trump has given you every opportunity to do so. Fund the wall, end the Diversity Visa Lottery, and restrict chain migration to immediate family. That’s all you have to do, and Dreamers can have their amnesty. But you won’t. Why not?
They won’t do it because the Dreamers mean more to them as a piece of propaganda than as people. Yes, Democrats want as much immigration from Latin America as they can get, because it is terrific for their bottom line. But in the meantime, they’re quite happy to use Trump’s “racism” as a campaign tool to take back the Senate in November.
We’ve got a sneaking feeling, though, that it’s not going to go the way they think.
