SAN FRANCISCO (KTVU) – Undocumented youth got loud and disruptive in San Francisco on Monday at a news conference where Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi called for the passage of the Dream Act.
Young people chanted, “You’re a liar!” and “you met with Trump and you call that resistance?”
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday night said they had reached a deal with President Donald Trump that would protect certain unauthorized immigrants as part of a broader border-security agreement.
Miriam Moreno wrote on Facebook, “Wooow. They are messing up any chances of us getting the help that we need. I’m a DACA recipient and I do not want to be represented in this way. Not all DACA recepients act in this manner.”
Pelosi was joined by Congresswoman Barbara Lee and Congressman Jared Huffman. She tried to calm down the crowd, and then left.
In a statement before the event, Pelosi said that “following the Trump Administration’s reckless decision to end the DACA initiative, communities across the country have joined together to advocate for protections for patriotic and courageous Dreamers.”
The event was held at College Track San Francisco at 4301 3rd Ave. in San Francisco.
