House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi slammed President Trump’s administration after Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers arrested 150 people who were suspected violators of U.S. immigration law in Northern California.
“The Trump administration’s raids were a shocking abuse of law enforcement power,” Pelosi said in a statement Wednesday. “Yet again, the White House has reached into our communities to indiscriminately detain scores of hard-working, law-abiding immigrants.”
“Fully half of those swept up in the ICE raids have no criminal record,” she said. “This raid was intended solely to terrorize innocent immigrant families and instill fear in the hearts of our communities – not to keep Americans safe. Parents will now be torn from their children, and spouses ripped away from their loved ones.”
“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.
Pelosi statement comes days after Libby Schaaf, the Democratic mayor of Oakland, warned residents that “multiple credible sources” had told her there would be ICE raids.
It is not an abuse of power. They’re just enforcing the Law. Actually, letting criminals go free is an abuse of power!!!
With this disgraceful comments, Pelosi is betraying her country. I think Pelosi needs a dictionary so she can look up the definition of “law abiding”… Pelosi and her liberal cohorts don’t seem to understand that the illegals broke our laws by illegally entering our country so they CAN NOT be law-abiding citizens.
But then, who said a liberal is capable of understanding anything more complex than their names!
