‘So Inhumane’: Pelosi Scolds Trump, Claims He Called Undocumented Immigrants ‘Animals’
It appears it wasn’t just the mainstream media that took President Trump’s remark about dangerous MS-13 gang members out of context.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) also piled on after Trump described the brutal gang as “animals” during a roundtable at the White House on Wednesday.
“You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people, these are animals, and we’re taking them out of the country at a level and at a rate that’s never happened before,” Trump said.
Media outlets including C-SPAN, the New York Times, ABC News, NBC News, CBS News and CNN did not put Trump’s words in context or ran with stories claiming he used the term “animals” to describe illegal immigrants more broadly. Some outlets later corrected or clarified their reporting, but others – including The Washington Post – did not.
Pelosi apparently didn’t get the memo, claiming the president had generally referred to undocumented immigrants as “animals.”
This is interesting; they use the term “Undocumented Immigrant” to describe a terror group. The more interesting part is nobody seems to understand the term “Immigrant”. They confuse it with “Refugee” and “Illegal Alien”. An immigrant will petition legally to come to a new country and generally bring value to that new home. A refugee comes to a new country fleeing persecution from people or ideals that threaten bodily harm for religion, race or beliefs but again, they apply legally for entrance and shelter. Any person who has already entered without alerting the United States Government is a criminal. It doesn’t matter whether their intentions were good or bad or if they pose no clear and present danger to American citizens, they came in secret and those actions are against the law, period. No good can come from a group of people who make the conscience decision to commit a crime as the first act toward moving to a new country and ours is the only country where our elected public servants are siding with criminals over the safety, health and welfare of their constituents. They seem more worried about the plight of those who first break the law and then demand to stay in our country of laws.
I think this MS-13 Gang issue is a very clear indication that we DO need a border, we DO need to be vigilant against illegal entry and we DO need to deport anyone who knowingly breaks the law. WE need to demand the constitution be followed with regard to immigrants, they MUST enter legally, they MUST prove they bring value to their new home, they MUST learn our language and they MUST obey the law as we all are expected to. Anything else is unacceptable and if those in Congress want to defend illegals over citizens then I think it’s high time they went! Those like Nancy Pelosi seem to think that they are ruling us and have forgotten that WE, the people are the boss and THEY are simply public servants expected to do what WE say and live to the exact same standard as those they serve. No Perks, no special deals and no more than eight years in office for life. Public service was never meant to be a full time job and those like Pelosi seem to think they are more important than those they serve and the Constitution they swore to defend!
