America Last—Pelosi wants taxpayer money sent to Central America to ‘alleviate’ conditions that made Immigrants flee
Putting ‘America Last’ is an accurate way to put it. It should certainly be a sight to see all those Angel Moms in attendance at the State of the Union Tuesday February 5th, 2019. This woman has ignored them and Kamala Harris’ office has even threatened to call police on them.
The truth is that Democrats are masochistic and care about nothing but getting more and more power and spending taxpayer money on anything they please, even so much as finding ways to line their own pockets. Ask yourself this — why are all these members of Congress worth many millions of dollars when they’re only paid $174,000 a year?
One could argue that they make proceeds from speaking engagements for large corporations and organizations and sell many books (of course, it would take a lot of speaking and certainly a lot of books to sell to be worth $72 million like Nancy, $70 million like Da Nang Dick, $90 million like Mark Warner and many others.
Of course, there are some worth way more that made their money legitimately prior to running for office and being elected, like Rick Scott and Donald Trump.
The question is though — Pelosi has always been a career politician, so how on God’s capitalist earth is she worth $72 million? Go find out yourselves and draw your own conclusions.
As reported by CNS
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Wednesday that congressional conferees working on a border security deal agree that there should be “sizable funding for food, clothing, medical care for immigrants,” as well as funding for more judges to adjudicate immigration cases, and sending taxpayer money to countries in the northern triangle to “alleviate” the conditions there that made them flee.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi won’t support a border wall, but she’s in favor of using taxpayer money to provide food, clothing, and medical supplies to illegal aliens.
While speaking at the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities on Wednesday, the California Democrat spoke about the border security package that congressional conferees are currently putting together.
Pelosi claimed that the conferees agree that there should be “sizable funding for food, clothing, medical care for immigrants” who come to the United States, including those who broke the law to illegally enter the country.
“We’re hoping that we can find common ground as soon as possible so that we can not only meet our responsibility to protect our border, to treat people coming here with dignity and respect but also to keep government open. Some of the things that we have in there I think will be very acceptable, goes on both sides of the ledger,” she said.
“We both care, all of us on either side of the wall question — but all care about treating the people who come, so there will be sizable funding for food, clothing, medical care for immigrants coming across the border so we don’t have people dying in our custody – children,” Pelosi added.
She continued: “There’ll be sizable funding for additional judges to more quickly adjudicate these cases so that it doesn’t become, well, they’re here such a long time. Well, it’s because we have such a backlog too, so we’ll have that.”
She also voiced her support for sending taxpayer money to Central America to “alleviate” the conditions there that made them flee.
“There’ll be funding to send money to the countries where most of these people are coming from – the northern triangle – to try to alleviate some of the conditions that have exacerbated the situation there, to mitigate for the horror that some of them face,” Pelosi said.
The California Democrat then claimed that thousands of migrants attempt to illegally enter the country every single day because they “have no choice” and are just looking for better opportunities.
“They come here, because they have no choice. It’s just a matter of life or death or danger for their families,” Pelosi said, adding, “there are other areas where we can find common ground, but those three are very personal in terms of the adjudication of the case, the care and feeding of them coming, and trying to help them stay at home.”
Pelosi then spoke about asylum seekers, saying when they illegally cross the border into the U.S., “that’s okay, too.”
She claimed that foreign nationals who enter the United States — even unlawfully — have the right to seek asylum, “under international law and any sense of decency.”
