House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi weighed-in on the recent ICE raids that occurred in the San Francisco Bay Area this weekend, saying the sweeps were just another example of the President’s “shocking abuse of law enforcement” to crackdown on illegal immigrants.
The former Speaker of the House slammed President Trump’s clampdown on undocumented workers in California this week; claiming the “bigoted” administration was “indiscriminately detaining scores” of people throughout the community.
“The Trump administration’s raids were a shocking abuse of law enforcement power,” Pelosi said Wednesday. “Yet again, the White House has reached into our communities to indiscriminately detain scores of hard-working, law-abiding immigrants.”
“The administration continues to brazenly target the cities that refuse to bow to its blatantly bigoted anti-immigrant and mass deportation agenda. The people of the San Francisco Bay Area will continue to oppose these cowardly attacks, and we will remain open to the patriotic immigrants who are the constant reinvigoration of America,” she added.
