Pelosi: "Enforcement of immigration laws in the United States is "un-American."

"House Speaker Nancy Pelosi recently told a group of both legal and illegal immigrants and their families that enforcement of existing immigration laws, as currently practiced, is "un-American."

The speaker, condemning raids by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, referred to the immigrants she was addressing as "very, very patriotic."

Oh but remember they keep telling us that these jobs are the ones Americans won't do. You know like paint, building, drywall, landscaping,etc. No Americans want to work in factories or do construction or any skilled labor.

Well Pelosi said she will fight for their right for the illegal's to work here. That ought to make every unmployed American, very happy.

It sure makes me happy! When will the public as a whole wake up and see what these politicians are doing and saying? When will we hold them accountable for all the promises they don't keep?
