(CNSNews.com) - House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) told the U.S. Conference of Mayors on Friday that President Donald Trump’s immigration plan is “a campaign to make America white again.”
By contrast, she said, new immigrants “make America more American.”
Here is an excerpt from Pelosi’s remarks at the conference, which was held in Washington, D.C.:
Last night the president put forth a plan. Let me just say what I said last night: That plan is a campaign to make America white again. It is plan that says over 50 percent of the current legal immigration will be cut back, that many people will be sent out of the country. If you read through it you are thinking: Do they not understand that immigration has been the constant reinvigoration of America. People come here with their hopes and dreams and aspirations and their optimism and their courage to make the future better for their families. They are honoring our Founders, who predicated on everything they do, every generation would make the future better for the next.
And with those same values, these newcomers make America more American.
