Incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Saturday that House Democrats will create a strong border by supporting illegal immigrants both at the border and throughout the country. “In the Majority, Democrats will work to reverse the Republicans’ destructive anti-immigrant agenda,” the California Democrat said in a statement released on her website. “Our House Democratic Majority will once again pass the Dream Act to end the uncertainty and fear inflicted on patriotic young men and women across the country,” she said. “We will protect (Temporary Protected Status) recipients and those fleeing unimaginable violence,” she added. Pelosi was responding to a letter from the Democratic Hispanic Caucus that demanded the Dream Act be passed to give the children of illegal immigrants who were born in America a “path to citizenship.” Dream Act legislation would impact individuals currently in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program that was implemented by former President Barack Obama. Obama’s executive actions creating the program are being challenged in court. The letter from the Hispanic Caucus also called for an end to the “militarization of our borderlands.” To deal with the arrival of migrants from caravans moving through Mexico, President Donald Trump sent soldiers to support Border Patrol agents and harden border crossings. The statement said Democrats “will hold the Trump administration accountable for their inhuman policy of separating families, and the trauma and anguish they have inflicted on vulnerable children and families at our border.”
