House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi revealed on Thursday that “now” is the time to talk about a comprehensive amnesty bill.
When speaking to CNN’s Chris Cuomo, Nancy Pelosi said she’s “100 percent” sure she will become House Speaker. She also said, “now we can talk about how we can come together and put together bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform.”
Talk is all Pelosi will get.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said on Thursday that “now” is the time to talk about comprehensive amnesty legislation because Democrats have regained control of the House.
Pelosi, who also said she is “100%” sure that she will regain her Speakership, told CNN’s Chris Cuomo that “now we can talk about how we can come together and put together bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform.”
Conceding that illegal immigration is a losing issue for Republicans, Pelosi revealed that she suggested to Democrats running for Congress to not get into fights with the Trump administration on immigration and instead “stick with lower healthcare costs, bigger paychecks, integrity in government” so they could win their races.
“Everything is about timing,” said Pelosi, who also told Democrats to “just win, baby,” even if it meant telling voters that they would not support her.
Pelosi noted that the Gang of Eight’s comprehensive amnesty bill passed the Senate three years ago but then-House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) refused to bring it up in the House.
“That was really a very sad thing for our country—that they would not bring it up,” she continued. More
You can talk about whatever you want Nancy, by all means, pass the exact bills we were warning you’d pass and watch them go on the front page as evidence we were right. Cheaper than campaign commercials and it gets straight to the point.
If my senators vote for any sort of amnesty, even bundled with something we need, they will never get my vote again. Amnesty is out of the question, does not need to be part of any deal. You cannot reward someone for breaking our laws.
You could have talked about that 2 years ago.
