    Pelosi Tells Illegal Immigrants That Work Site Raids are Un-American

    Pelosi Tells Illegal Immigrants That Work Site Raids are Un-American.

    Quote Originally Posted by By William Lajeunesse, Wednesday, March 18, 2009
    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi recently told a group of both legal and illegal immigrants and their families that enforcement of existing immigration laws, as currently practiced, is "un-American."

    The speaker, condemning raids by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, referred to the immigrants she was addressing as "very, very patriotic."

    "Who in this country would not want to change a policy of kicking in doors in the middle of the night and sending a parent away from their families?" Pelosi told a mostly Hispanic gathering at St. Anthony's Church in San Francisco.

    "It must be stopped....What value system is that? I think it's un-American. I think it's un-American."
    While I am no fan of some of the enforcement tactics, I think that Pelosi is really off base with what she is doing here. We should not be letting illegal immigrants get the idea that it's okay to be here illegally. And I think essentially that is what she is doing. With the economy the way it is we need to be thinning the herd a bit and reducing the number of entitlement dependent people in the U.S. Starting with illegal immigrants.

    While I disagree with the armed LEO's raiding houses and separating parents from children thing, I truly believe we have to make this country a nice place to visit, but not stay (unless you're legal). Penalizing employers heavily and cutting off welfare benefits are a start. Traveling around telling groups of people, some of whom are presumably illegal immigrants, that anti-immigration enforcement is un-American is ridiculous. Workplace enforcement of immigration laws is necessary.

    Pelosi should step down.

    She's a huge offender of labor laws in the first place, hires mostly illegals as contract workers, part owner of a couple of plants in American protectorates exempt from the minimum wage(surprise surprise) etc. No wonder she doesn't want one of her resources eliminated by that pesky enforcement duty of INS.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    This is not news to those of us who know that Pelosi has never been right on just about everything.

    But this also isn't just about Pelosi; Pelosi is no different than the majority of Democrats who feel and act the exact same way, particularly those Democrat members from the state of California.

    It is encouraging, however, to see the Liberals who voted for these buffoons start to get it; they say that recognizing the error of one's ways is the first stage to recovery.

    It is always best to hear ignorance when it comes directly from the proverbial "horses" mouth, but in this case it is the "jackass" mouth; thanks for posting this Tallou.

    I didn't vote for Pelosi (even if I lived in her state and district I wouldn't have) and have never liked her. Many Democrats have very good ideas, some don't. Many Republicans have very good ideas, some don't. The Republicans in Congress are just as guilty as the Democrats on screwing this country with regard to illegal immigration.

    The difference between you and I seems to be that I can lay down my partisanship on this issue and call a spade a spade.

    What makes you think she is going to get ousted? You do realize she's held that seat since 1987 and won by a huge majority in every regular election she's ran in right? The Dems have held the 8th District since the late 40's. She's not going anywhere unfortunately.

    Like Barney Frank & Maxine Waters the said truth is Pelosi probably isn't going anywhere.
