House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi trashed her Republican colleagues this week, saying their recent push to solve the escalating border crisis was a “compromise with the devil.”
Pelosi was speaking with reporters Thursday when she was asked about the fate of Paul Ryan’s “moderate” immigration bill; claiming the Republicans were “never interested” in working with the Democrats.
“Have you spoken with the Speaker about doing some bipartisan agreement?” asked one reporter.
“They have never been interested,” fired-back Pelosi. “It may be a compromise with the devil, but it’s not a compromise with the Democrats in terms of what they have in their bill.”
“Their bills are anti-family, perpetuate child detention, undermine existing protections and cut off many people who have been waiting lawfully to enter the country,” she added.
