Refusing to Be Bargaining Chips, Dreamers Shut Down Pelosi's Pro-Dreamer Event

Along with undocumented Dreamers and other lawmakers, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was shouted down during a press event in San Francisco on Monday when a group of immigration rights advocates took over the room in protest of what they perceive as a show of political weakness by Democrats in Congress.

The group of protesters, as local Fox affiliate KTVU reports, shouted: “You’re a liar!” and “You met with Trump and you call that resistance?”

As others have also stated, the group of protesters rejected the idea that Pelosi, along with Senate Minority Chuck Schumer (D-NY), should capitulate or make a deal with President Donald Trump over the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

“We are not your bargaining chip!” the group shouted while many held signs that read “Democrats Are Deporters” and “Fight 4 All 11 Million”—a reference to the full number of undocumented people estimated to live in the United States, as opposed to the approximately 800,000 who DACA is designed to protect.
