Pelosi on White House Immigration Framework: ‘A Campaign to Make America White Again’
Pelosi on White House Immigration Framework: ‘A Campaign to Make America White Again’ (The Washington Free Beacon)
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) on Friday castigated the White House's newly released immigration reform proposal as a "campaign to make America white again."
Her comments came the day after the White House released a framework for immigration reform that proposes a pathway to citizenship for 1.8 million young illegal immigrants in exchange for $25 billion to go toward a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border and other border-security measures.
Speaking at the United States Conference of Mayors, Pelosi blasted the framework with racially-charged rhetoric, suggesting that the White House plan seeks to hurt minority groups.
