House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was ambushed by a large group of illegal aliens who call themselves the “Immigration Liberation Movement” on Monday, warning Pelosi not to “sell [us] out.”
Pelosi was clearly overwhelmed and struggled to maintain control when the group shouted her down and unfurled a large banner calling for all illegal aliens to be legalized.
They are shouting that they will not vote for her and “this is what Democracy looks like”, they are illegals and should not be voting or making demands. They will be lucky not to be deported.
Others held up signs, including: “Fight 4 All 11 Million,” referring to the estimated total of all illegal aliens in the U.S.
In the “mic check” call-and-response style popularized by the Occupy Wall Street protests in 2011, the activists declared:
We remember all too well how for eight years the Democrats laid siege to our communities, raiding and deporting nearly three million people, of our family members and loved ones. Where was your resistance then? Ms. Pelosi, did you think we would forget? We send a clear message to our fellow undocumented youth and community: We are the resistance to Trump! Not the Democrats!
The activists also chanted “Brown power!” In a show of “intersectionality” — solidarity among left-wing groups — they also chanted “Trans lives matter!” and other slogans, while Pelosi stood silently behind the throng.
“You met with Trump, and you call that resistance?” they shouted in unison.
Earlier, Pelosi had spoken at the podium with community leaders and fellow members of Congress from the Bay Area in support of her legislative push for a bill that would legalize the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
President Donald Trump canceled DACA earlier this month, but left Congress a six-month window in which to find a legislative solution for the roughly 800,000 DACA beneficiaries. Pelosi said that she wanted the “DREAM Act,” a long-dormant Democratic Party bill that goes much further than DACA, “to be the basis of how we go forward.”
“We’re not giving up our fight to protect America’s dreamers,” she said.
However, she could not speak over the protests. “It’s clear you don’t want any answers,” she said.
"Yes or no, yes or no?" angrily demand protesters who interrupted San Francisco press conference. "To what??" asks a befuddled Nancy Pelosi. pic.twitter.com/3us6cD8XDC

As if to support her point, activists chanted: “All of us — or none of us,” meaning that they would only accept full amnesty for all illegal aliens, not just DACA beneficiaries.
Well, I guess they are in for a disappointment because President Trump is not going to grant all illegals amnesty so they can all leave.
