House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is claiming that although deaths of people by illegal immigrants are tragic, they don’t constitute a crisis at the border.
WASHINGTON, D.C. — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stood by Democrats’ belief Thursday that the border issue is a “manufactured crisis” created by Republicans and President Donald Trump, and claimed there is not enough data about those who have suffered at the hands of illegal aliens to say otherwise.
The Daily Caller asked Pelosi at her weekly presser if she would still describe the border issue as a “manufactured crisis” to people who have lost relatives to overdoses from the drugs flowing across the border, or to families that have lost loved ones to crimes by illegal immigrants, like Corporal Ronil Singh’s. Singh was allegedly murdered by an illegal alien during a traffic stop in California in December.
“What I would say to families like that is what I would say to the president regularly,” Pelosi replied. “These are tragic situations. There’s a tragic situation at the border. Two little children died in the custody of Border Patrol but the plural anecdote is not data.”
“And as painful and as horrible one death is, whether it’s the corporal or whether it’s the children, but the fact is we have to have public policy that secures our border and there’s what the president is proposing will not eliminate those possibilities,” Pelosi added.
