Just because someone violated federal law, doesn't mean they need to be punished.
That absurd logic is what House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has been babbling about in front of her constiuents as of late.
Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., claimed a "violation of status" was not a valid reason to deport illegal immigrants, during a Speaker of the House discussion on Monday.
Pelosi said she was uncertain of President Trump's plan to fix America's immigration system, but claimed being in the country illegally was not grounds for deportation.
"So, that is really kind of what happened. [Trump] didn’t say what he was going to do but, as the president said, 'oh, I’ll let you know, I’ll let you know.' [He] went into -- 'well, people broke the laws.' A violation of status is not a reason for deportation. That’s just not so," she said.
An ICE official who spoke with Fox News did not address Pelosi's comments directly but pointed to 8 U.S. Code Section 1325 (and 1326 for re-entry), and said anyone found to have violated U.S. immigration laws may be arrested, detained and – if found removable by final order – removed from the United States.
Pelosi also spoke about Trump's proposed ICE raids, which have now been delayed for two weeks to, he said, give Congress additional time to find a solution to the southern border crisis. She called the operation uncivilized and questioned its purpose.
This is why Trump beat Hillary - the Left has lost their minds. They care more about foreign invaders than American citizens.
