During a news conference on Tuesday with Rep. Lloyd Doggett of Texas, Speaker Nancy Pelosi stated that immigrants “make America more American,” and that we should not be “suppressing the vote of our newcomers to America.”
What exactly did she mean by that?
The Speaker of the House went on to say, “So, when we talk about newcomers, we have to recognize the constant reinvigoration of America that they are, that we all have been – our families. And that, unless you’re blessed to be Native American – which is a blessing in itself that we respect – but that constant reinvigoration of hope, determination, optimism, courage, to make the future better for the next generation, those are American traits. And these newcomers make America more American. And we want them, when they come here, to be fully part of our system. And that means not suppressing the vote of our newcomers to America.”
Pelosi continued her speech and even quoted Ronald Reagan in an attempt to portray the message that Reagan’s words showed that he was a supporter of illegal immigration.
President Reagan must be rolling over in his grave.
“In the campaign, the candidate that I, the president that I quoted the most was Ronald Reagan. Does that surprise you? Maybe. But Ronald Reagan said this: ‘This is the last speech I will make as President of the United States. And I have a message I want to communicate to the country I love.’ He went on to talk about the Statue of Liberty and what it means to the world – that beacon of hope, what it means to people who have come here and seen that statue welcoming them – he said, our ancestors, our grandparents, our parents. We, in California, see people coming from a different direction, but the same welcome. You see them coming, many from the south, southern border, but should be the same welcome. He went on to say, though, after talking about the Statue of Liberty: ‘the vital force of America’s preeminence in the world is every new generation of immigrants who come to our country. And when America fails to recognize that as our vital force, America will fail to be preeminent in the world’ – preeminent in the world.”
Reagan was referring to LEGAL immigrants, not ILLEGAL ones.
When talking about people coming from the south, Pelosi is referring to the illegal aliens that are crossing our border at record numbers.
The Speaker of the House is openly encouraging criminal actions that negatively impact our country and falsely using Reagan’s words to encouraged her twisted agenda.
The whole purpose of her speech was to portray the message that people coming across our southern border are making America more American and how we shouldn’t suppress their vote.
The Speaker fails to clarify if she is discussing legal or illegal immigrants but there is no data that suggests that legal immigrants’ votes are being suppressed so it seems to be clear that Pelosi is talking about illegal aliens.
The only reason Democrats like Pelosi care so much about immigration, is because of the votes they gain.

And there it is folks. What we all knew but no one would say. It’s only about votes for Democrats.
