Nancy Pelosi has not even been voted in as the next Speaker of the House of Representatives and she is already talking about pushing through an amnesty bill for illegal aliens.
On Thursday, Pelosi told the media that she thinks it is time to “talk about” a comprehensive amnesty bill.
Ballots are still being counted in some 2018 midterm races, but Pelosi is already lining up her destructive agenda for 2019.
Pelosi has formally announced that she wants to be re-installed as House speaker by the incoming Democrat majority and in anticipation of that she is already priming the pump with a reactionary agenda.
According to Breitbart News:
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.
With her effort to push full amnesty for tens of millions of lawbreaking illegals, Pelosi insisted that giving sudden citizenship to illegals would be “good for our economy.”
This has been a long campaign for the San Francisco liberal. In 2014 she said, “It’s the biggest thing that we can do, and that’s why I’ve said to the speaker, to the press, to these groups, I would rather pass [a] comprehensive immigration reform bill than win the elections in November. There’s nothing we could accomplish in winning that would be as big as passing immigration reform.”
With Pelosi already fanning the flames of racial division and amnesty for illegals, you can bet the next few years are going to be a long, hard slog.
But we know why she is doing it. These millions will become instant Democrat voters if she gets her way.
