Nancy Pelosi: Trump’s immigration raids are a ‘shocking abuse of law enforcement power’

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., tore into the Trump administration Wednesday 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.”

    First of all, the are NOT immigrants, they are ILLEGAL INVADERS. ICE is just getting rid of unwanted ILLEGAL INVADERS just as Eliot Ness (was an American Prohibition agent, famous for his efforts to enforce Prohibition in Chicago, Illinois) enforced prohibition. This went on until it was repealed in 1933. ICE will continue following the current immigration laws until changed but not just ignored by any state

      But, but, but, Jose, they aren’t referred to as “illegal” anything, remember, that title was changed by the Progressives, to “undocumented Immigrant”, everything is hunky-dory now!
      In fact it has worked so well, I propose that we retitle other problematic situations. Bank Robbery could be retitled as “Undocumented Withdrawals”. Murder as “Undocumented Termination”. Rape as “Undocumented Sexual Activity”! Just think of all the money we would save by not prosecuting these unfortunate souls, It would free up our Courts to prosecute really serious crimes like owning a firearm, or stating your opinion outside of the designated area!

    Nancy, you are as crazy as we all expected you to be. To be an immigrant in this country you must have come here legally. If California wants more immigrants why are you not standing at the immigration office and recruit all the new Americans that come in legally.
    I think you are protecting the coyotes that are bringing these poor people in illegally to slave labor work in your state and that is a crime. California would then be considered a slave state and the Federal government law enforcement teams would be these immigrant’s only salvation.
    God protect the poor souls from these ignorant politicians.
