Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Monday questioned "the point" of having scheduled deportations and immigration raids. Her statement was a clear reference to the massive operation that was scheduled to take place in 10 cities on Sunday but was put on hold at the last minute.
Pelosi told a group of people in New York that President Donald Trump's raids were "appalling," TheBlaze reported.
"When I saw that the president was going to have these raids—I mean it was so appalling; it's outside the circle of civilized human behavior to just be kicking down doors, splitting up families, and the rest of that, in addition to the injustices that are happening at the border," Pelosi said. "We have legislation to go forward to address those needs, but in terms of interior enforcement, what's the – what's the point?"
According to Pelosi "a violation of status is not a reason for deportation."
Is she serious?
This woman is running the House of Representatives. She's the third in line to take control of our country, should things go really, really south. And she doesn't understand that breaking an immigration law is reason for deportation?
It's really not that complex or hard to understand. We have immigration laws. Our immigration laws say people who want to live and reside in the United States need permission to come to our nation. They need to fill out paperwork, pay a fee, go through the interview process and prove themselves worthy of becoming American citizens. We have a right to know who is coming to our country and why. We have a vested interest in who decides to come here. It's a matter of national security.
When someone breaks our laws, walks across our border and stays in our country without us knowing who they are or why they're here, it is a reason for deportation. If these people can't follow our immigration law, the very first set of laws they come in contact here, how do we know that they're going to be law-abiding citizens? They don't respect us enough to follow our legal immigration process and yet we owe them something? No.
Liberals need to come to this realization and come to it quickly: America owes no one a thing. People from other nations act as though they ought to have a right to come to the United States. They don't. It has to be a mutually beneficial relationship. What is this person going to contribute to our society? How are they going to make America better? Do they have a skillset we can utilize? Are they doctors, scientists and engineers? Or are they low-skill labor? We have to evaluate all of these things.
Other countries turn people away. Other countries protect their borders. Hell, Mexico does it, and no one has a problem with it. But when the United States does it, we're suddenly horrible people who hate anyone and everyone not born here. It's absolutely ridiculous. We have to take a vested interest in our national security and weigh the cost-benefit of letting each individual here.
It's comments like Pelosi's that spark the influx of illegal aliens flocking to our southern border. It sends a very strong signal that we don't enforce our laws and anyone and everyone is welcome here. Democrats like to take credit for being the "humanitarians" and providing "humanitarian aid" but they won't close the border to prevent future crises from taking place. They won't build the wall, even if that would keep people from walking thousands of miles through the desert to get to our southern border. And conservatives are labeled as "monsters." How rich.
