Pelosi Advises Illegal Immigrants on How to Avoid ICE

Pelosi speaker Nancy leftSpeaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday offered advice to illegal immigrants seeking to avoid arrest and deportation by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers.

“An ICE deportation warrant is not the same as a search warrant. If that is the only document ICE brings to a home raid, agents do not have the legal right to enter a home. If ICE agents don’t have a warrant signed by a judge, a person may refuse to open the door and let them in,” said Pelosi, reading from prepared remarks at her weekly press conference.

Pelosi’s comments come as ICE plans to begin raids in ten major cities Sunday targeting 2,000 illegal immigrants who have ignored deportation orders.

During a closed-door meeting on Thursday, Pelosi urged members of her caucus to help disseminate the party’s “know your rights” campaign to illegal immigrants in their districts who may be targeted during the raids, Politico reported. She also told her colleagues that she plans to appeal to religious leaders to speak out against the planned raids.

After the meeting, Pelosi told reporters that she believed opposition from religious leaders played a significant role in Trump’s decision to call off a sweeping ICE raid in early June.

“They were very concerned that this goes too far because these raids were not what they signed up for with President Trump. And I think their calls to the president made a difference,” Pelosi said. “Hopefully the president will think again about it or these groups will weigh in once again.”

“Families belong together,” she added. “Every person in America has rights.”

Trump agreed in June to delay the planned raid to give Congress time to reach a compromise on an immigration bill that would include a tightening of asylum laws. House minority leader Kevin McCarthy said Thursday that the impending raids could have been avoided if his colleagues across the aisle were more willing to negotiate.

“Tell me one thing that this majority has done in the amount of time that the speaker called the president and asked him to delay it? Has there been a hearing? Has there been a bill produced? Have we asked to stay over a weekend and solve this problem?” McCarthy said. “I think if the president actually saw the House actually taking action, he probably would delay even further to make sure the problem gets solved.”

“[Pelosi] asked the president to delay it and he said he would,” McCarthy added. “It is the speaker who is causing this problem.”

Nancy is correct. Every person in America has rights and so do I. I have the right and expectation to believe that those that have sworn an oath to uphold the laws of this country will do so. If they do not then I also have the right to see they are charged with the crime of aiding and abetting in order to circumvent the laws that are in place. If you don’t like the laws then change them or resign from your position. We are a nation of laws and as elected officials you do not get to pick and choose what laws your emotions dictate. As the New England Patriots say DO YOUR JOB or get out

She should be arrested for aiding and abetting criminals.

Dr. Jed Snyder

What part of Illegal resident is hard to understand? They have broken the law, some for years, and they should be held accountable for breaking our laws. Other nations will not put up with this kind of nonsense. We should not. Illegal is illegal is illegal!

BajaRon

Democrat Party = Anti-American Party

Judy

Nancy Pelosi should be impeached. She needs to be removed from office and we need to set term limits in place. These corrupt politicians should not be guaranteed a lifetime salary for not doing their job. Worse for actually trying to destroy America.

Marilyn Clayton

Isn’t that illegal?? She’s going against the law she should be terminated.

Time to do a few things here; Stop announcing what you are going to do, Seals do not teal, Sub sailors are called the silent Service and NIS never said they were going to raid so WTH set the policy not to tell what the hell you are going to do. It is about time to arrest a lot of congress and some others, for adding and abating criminals. Party does not matter and throw the book at them. Leaders first lets set the example, she has over 40 years and she just broke the law. While we are at it some governors and mayors should be arrested also.

C. Williamson

Pelosi should be brought up on dereliction of duty or malfeasance of office

Sharon Trampe

Pelosi is adding more fuel to the fire by her statements. The Democrats want to be in control, yet do nothing feasible to help stop the influx of illegals. They are more concerned with supporting the rights of the illegals, than defending the laws and rights of the legal American Citizens. I have no issue with someone who comes to this country LEGALLY. it is the people that have ignored our laws and policies and think they can just expect and even demand that we cater to them. There is a reason we have a system set up to legally accept people into our country. They need to apply for a visa or citizenship, follow the rules. One of my biggest concerns, and there are many, is that they come into this country and bring all kinds of disease that we have almost eradicated. Democrats are blaming President Trump, when… Read more »

When elected, she took an oath to uphold the laws of the USA. She should be impeached and tried to TREASON!!!

Nancy

Pelosi is breaking the law by aiding and abetting criminals. She needs to be arrested.
Breaking the law is breaking the law.

Trumps #1 Fan

She should have made copies of the keys to her house and gated wall to give out to the illegals she so desperately wants to protect. If everyone in America has rights, that’s the best reason I know to remove those that don’t belong here in the first place.

Marilyn Clayton

Isn’t Pelosi going against the law she should be terminated!!!

Bill

Why aren’t these politicians prosecuted and imprisoned for violating Federal Laws??? Any person who . . . encourages or induces an alien to . . . reside . . . knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such . . . residence is . . . in violation of law, shall be punished as provided . . . for each alien in respect to whom such a violation occurs . . . fined under title 18 . . . imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both.” Section 274 felonies under the federal Immigration and Nationality Act, INA 274A(a)(1)(A): A person (including a group of persons, business, organization, or local government) commits a federal felony when she or he: * assists an alien s/he should reasonably know is illegally in the U.S. or who lacks employment authorization, by transporting, sheltering, or assisting him or her to obtain employment,… Read more »

If families belong together then why come to the states separated.
Pelosi is definitely not a patriot. She is crazy

Randall Abernathy

How can this not be against the law? Subverting the Constitution and rule of law? She needs to be thrown in jail in solitary confinement/no bail until she can be tried for treason.

James Panzer

What a traitor

Brenda Blunt

Pelosi should be held in jail for obstructing justice! She has sanctuary cities in her state and thus doesn’t want to lose votes! She should be held responsible legally, morally, and ethically! She should step down!! Impeach her!!!

Sally

Sounds treasonous to me. Why is she not being held accountable?

Tolbert Barton Jr

Then ICE should obtain search and sezure warrants
