Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi stooped to a new-low on Tuesday afternoon, insinuating President Donald Trump was considering relocating DACA enrollees to Japanese-style internment camps throughout the United States.
Pelosi was speaking on the steps of the Capitol when she made the outrageous remarks, saying the Trump administration was “coming for the ‘dreamers'” the same way the federal government rounded-up Japanese Americans in the midst of the Second World War.
“A week and a half ago, I was in Chicago, and I saw this art exhibit that I was invited to see. It’s called ‘And then they came for me,’ and it’s about the internment of the Japanese-American patriots in our country who were interned into camps during World War II while their family members were fighting for freedom for America and for the world in World War II,” said the House Minority Leader.
“And now they’re coming for the Dreamers […] This is something—we owe these Dreamers for their patriotism, their courage, their optimism to come forward, but it’s about America too,” she added. “We cannot let them come for them, so while the president thinks that giving six months time for Congress to act, we want to do that sooner. We want to do it within six weeks and hopefully we can by supporting the Dream Act that is in the House and the Senate.”
