Pelosi Says Border Wall 'Undermines Who We Are As a Country'
Cybercast News Service ^ | February 16, 2017 | 11:59 AM EST | Susan Jones

Building a border wall “undermines who we are as a country,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told a news conference on Thursday. She said she is “opposed to the wall”—“politically, substantively, officially, spiritually, religiously, personally.”

She also described recent ICE raids across the country as “another assault on our values.”

“In the past week, we have witnessed ICE raids across our nation targeting parents, students and a DACA-protected dreamer...We have seen press reports that federal immigration agents went to the El Paso County courthouse and arrested an undocumented woman who had just received a protective order after suffering domestic violence. The agents apparently detained the woman after receiving a tip, possibly from her alleged abuser. What is this?” Pelosi asked. “You know, It’s supposed to be—they’re only supposed to be—” (She trailed off and did not finish her thought.) …

This “Who were are...” phrase is so worn out. Just shows how bankrupt the left is.

Pelosi’ definition of ‘who we are as a country’ is the exactly the redefinition of our society that the global socialist movement has been working to create for many years......a socialist state overseen by a class of demonically inspired oligarchs.

Well gosh... I certainly wouldn’t want to “undermine who we are”!

That would be awful.

And after all, who’s all that concerned about a few terrorists anyway... Let’s leave our borders wide open.

We will be beyond hope—permanently beyond hope—if we let airheads like Nancy Pelosi defnine whom we are. The women is totally and irredeemably clueless.

For a rational & historic recognition of "Who We Are?"

Reminds me of the history teacher at my son’s Baptist school who told his freshman class that building a wall is, and I quote, “very rude.”

The way the Left uses the term is really an example of the “Big Lie” technique, used effectively by such other “idealists” as Lenin, Stalin, Hitler & probably Pol Pot. It has that false ring of virtue, that appeals to Lenin’s “useful idiots.” In the Pelosi usage, it is bow shot across the very concept of a nation.

Who the bleep are we, then, in your tiny mind, Pelosi?

1. Americans pay attention to immigration laws in other countries because when they travel, they’d like NOT to be stuck in a foreign prison.

2. Illegals know DAMN WELL that they are illegal here, they know they are breaking the law, but since they don’t have to face ANY retribution, they feel confident.

I guess what you are really saying, clueless old bitch, is that we are a nation who from time to time enjoys profiting from SLAVERY. Slavery for workers, and slavery for votes. Yes, that is who YOU are, but it’s not who America is. All you need to know is in our Constitution.

Every nation has borders.

This, “That’s not who we are” phrase is used in the most condescending and pejorative manner by Obama, Pelosi as they talk down to the rest of America from their political dung heap.

I suggest they keep using this phrase because it is like nails on a chalkboard to millions of Americans. I have even seen Democrats blanch at the constant arrogant lecturing by these self appointed elitists.

“This ‘who we are”...phrase is so worn out.”

I was thinking the same thing, Awgie. “Who we are” is being used by people who are talking about long ago when it was “who THEY were”. “We” have now recovered, and the blinders are off. America for Americans should be the new phrase. I’m hoping TPTB will add a new paragraph to the base of the Statue of Liberty indicating new immigrants should be packing some job skills,vigor, and a work ethic in their baggage or don’t bother coming.

“In the past week, we have witnessed ICE raids across our nation targeting parents, students and a DACA-protected dreamer...”

She left out Flynn and Scapegoat. I mean since she’s listing other false lefty talking points might as well be thorough.

It is a law. The Secure Fence Act of 2006 has not been repealed. It passed with 26 Democrat senate votes (including both California senators) and 64 Democrat house votes.

Just like other immigration laws, it has simply not been enforced. Enforce the law! Or change the law. But until changed, enforce the law!

...

Those arrests were pretty much the same as the arrests under Obama.

I read somewhere that the illegals are costing us over 50 billion per year. Seems high. Billions of dollars are confiscated from the drug trade.

It makes good economic sense Ms. Pelosi.

Illegal Aliens and un-assimilated immigrants undermine who we are as a country.
Pelosi is not acting in the interests of the Republic. She should be considered a foreign agent.

Which is the globalist agenda because the dems views on this subject is not popular with Americans and does not garner them votes so why continue to go down this anti-American path unless your real goal is the destruction of the US no matter if it destroys your party?
