Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi raised eyebrows on Monday with a series of comments that she made about enforcing U.S. immigration laws.
Speaking at an event in Elmhurst, New York, Pelosi attacked President Donald Trump over the raids from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers that were scheduled to happen over the weekend but were delayed after sensitive information was leaked to the public about the locations of the raids.
"When I saw that the president was going to have these raids, I mean it was so appalling," Pelosi said. "It's outside the circle of civilized human behavior to just be kicking down doors, splitting up families, and the rest of that, in addition to the injustices that are happening at the border. We have legislation to go forward to address those needs, but in terms of interior enforcement, what's the – what's the point?"
Pelosi also claims that she told Trump that illegal aliens breaking federal immigration law "is not a reason for deportation."
Such flagrant disregard for US law from the Speaker of the US House of Representatives makes one question whether Pelosi is even fit for office.
