House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) suggested Tuesday that Republicans want to put "Dreamers" in internment camps while speaking at a press conference.

Pelosi joined the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus to praise Dreamers, young immigrants who were brought illegally to the U.S. as children, for "advancing the American dream with their courage and their optimism and their inspiration." She thanked the lawmakers present for being there before she warned that Dreamers may face the same fate as Japanese Americans who were interned during World War II.

"A week and a half ago, I was in Chicago, and I saw this art exhibit that I was invited to see. It's called ‘And then they came for me,' and it's about the internment of the Japanese-American patriots in our country who were interned into camps during World War II while their family members were fighting for freedom for America and for the world in World War II," Pelosi said.
