Democrat SLAMS Pelosi over Racist “Make America White Again” comment…
Later she used the same race-baiting statement in a live speech. (VIDEO BELOW)
I have offered DACA a wonderful deal, including a doubling in the number of recipients & a twelve year pathway to citizenship, for two reasons: (1) Because the Republicans want to fix a long time terrible problem. (2) To show that Democrats do not want to solve DACA, only use it!

Pelosi’s statement came after President Trump basically offered amnesty to the 800,000 DACA “dreamers” plus one million more illegal immigrants. Instead of saying “Thank you President Trump,” she tweeted the following: (VIDEO BELOW)
“The Trump Administration’s anti-immigrant framework is an act of staggering cowardice which attempts to hold the
#DREAMers hostage to an unmistakable campaign to make America white again.”
Hold them hostage? How is allowing them to stay, and giving them a path to citizenship, holding them “hostage”.
** Pelosi actually used the race card in a live speech, as well. Check out the video below.

One Democratic Senator, Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia, was not amused at all by Nancy Pelosi’s statement.
Manchin (D-West Virginia) is a moderate Democrat and a leader of a bipartisan Senate group working on immigration. In a separate interview on Sunday on NBC’s Meet the Press, he said he thought the White House plan was “a good starting point.”
Trump is insisting on $25 billion in funding for a border wall with Mexico and tougher immigration enforcement. His proposals call for a crackdown on chain migration and the diversity visa lottery program.
In a speech at the United States Conference of Mayors 2018 winter meeting on Friday, Pelosi said the 50 percent cut to legal immigration and the “recent announcements to end Temporary Protected Status for Central Americans and Haitians are both part of the same cruel agenda. They are part of the Trump administration’s unmistakable campaign to make America white again.”
