Pelosi: We Are All Americans Now!

Nancy Pelosi has been on the Southern border, trying to demagogue the tragic influx of tens of thousands of Central American minors, largely unaccompanied. She gave a press conference today. Breitbart reports:

Saturday at a press conference from the Rio Grande Valley, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) discussed her tour of a border holding facility and addressed the humanitarian crisis of thousands unaccompanied minors flooding across the U.S.-Mexico border, which she called a “humanitarian opportunity.”

Pelosi explained, “We are all Americans — north and south in this hemisphere,” and urged America to see this as not a crisis but an opportunity “to be helpful.” She also said she wished she could simply “take home” the thousands of children temporarily housed in the overburden facilities.

You can see much more at the link. Pelosi is a low-IQ BS artist, and today’s press conference was typical. “We are all Americans”–what is that supposed to mean? She clarifies: we all live in the Western Hemisphere! So maybe all of these people will be welcome in Canada? It is hard to find a point there.

Pelosi said repeatedly that she wants to take all the kids she has seen in Texas home. Actually, she could: not all, but quite a few of them. The Obama administration certainly wouldn’t stop her from breaking the law. And Pelosi’s various mansions could house quite a few Central Americans. Her husband Paul, the brains of the family, is a very rich man, which frees Nancy to fool around with politics. This is the Pelosi mansion in San Francisco:


Nancy could house 20 or 30 Central Americans there. But that’s nothing. The Pelosi vineyard in Napa Valley could be home to several hundred. Look at the low population density!


Yes, hundreds of immigrants could be housed on the Pelosi vineyard. As long as they don’t try to join a union, anyway: the Pelosi vineyard is strictly non-union.

This is all a fantasy, of course. Nancy Pelosi has no intention of housing thousands of Central American immigrants, legal or illegal, in any of her several neighborhoods. The consequences of importing tens of millions of new unskilled immigrants to drive down wages and devastate the American working class will be dire, but they won’t be felt by the likes of Paul and Nancy Pelosi.
