Protesters Force Nancy Pelosi Off Stage at DACA Rally

Protesters Force Nancy Pelosi Off Stage at DACA Rally

A vocal group of undocumented youths and their supporters drowned out House Minority Nancy Pelosi Monday at a news conference where she was calling on the Trump administration to immediately pass the DREAM Act.

But dozens of young people instead rushed the stage and began chanting, "we are not a bargaining chip" and "all or us or none of us". "So we are working on a plan", Trump said, hours after hosting a working dinner with top congressional Democrats on the so-called "Dreamers", who were protected from deportation under an Obama-era scheme called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

Emerging from an Oval Office meeting with Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, a beaming Trump touted the deal for his imminent removal from office.

'You're a liar! You're a liar!' they shouted, and 'Democrats created an out-of-control deportation machine!'

Laith Ocean, a 20-year-old Northern California junior college student who was among the protesters who shut down Pelosi's event Monday, said Wednesday that the students had acted to make their voices heard.

Trump recently gave Congress six months to come up with a solution before the Dreamers' protections would end, though what he would actually do absent congressional action is uncertain. "You've had your say, and it's handsome music to our ears", she told the crowd as it erupted again in loud shouts pressing for protections for "Dreamers".

Back-and-forths between demonstraters and Pelosi followed, with the protesters reminding her that Obama had deported hundreds of thousands: "Did you think we would forget?" "We are!" they shouted.




Pelosi has called for those in her party to embrace their success and the almost 700,000 lives it will save, which is certainly no small accomplishment.

A group has gathered at an event in San Francisco where they interrupted Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi as she was set to speak in support of the Dream Act.

"They are not always in tune", Rollins said of GOP leadership.

According to The Washington Post, the approximately 40 protesters were frustrated with the unspecified increased border security attached to the deal, a clear sign that this is a tenuous compromise and not, in their words, a "clean bill".

"Hey! Stop it!" she continued to yell at them.

The willingness to engage with a president reviled by their party also worries liberals like Rep. Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz., who warned against "proceeding toward normalizing him". Offering them legal protection while this country finally sorts out its immigration reform mess is an act of compassion and intelligence - these are the kind of hardworking go-getters who already are assets to this country. "Don't use the Latino community as a way to expand your own political. you know". They are messing up any chances of us getting the help that we need. That said, only 41% think it's unlikely the federal government will be able to secure the border even if a reform measure is passed.
