Pelosi Shouted Down by Activists Over DACA Deal With Trump

Pelosi and Reps. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., and Jared Huffman, D-Calif., appeared at an event in her home town of San Francisco to call on Congress to immediately pass the Dream Act, bipartisan legislation that would enshrine legal protections for hundreds of thousands of "dreamers" into law.

"We are not your bargaining chip!" the group shouted while many held signs that read "Democrats Are Deporters" and "Fight 4 All 11 Million"-a reference to the full number of undocumented people estimated to live in the United States, as opposed to the approximately 800,000 who DACA is created to protect". He's since held meetings with Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer to discuss renewing it and increasing border security.

Recounting the White House dinner that produced progress on immigration, the only woman among 11 people around the Blue Room's rectangular table said she was responding to Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross when "the others" interrupted.

"All of us or none of us", they said later.

After about a half hour, staff members of the California Democrat ushered her up the stairs and out of the building as the protests yelled out "You're a liar". "We all are fighting for comprehensive immigration reform", Pelosi said. DACA has been controversial since former President Barack Obama implemented the policy because of questions regarding its constitutionality.

When the protesters began shouting again, Pelosi herself raised her voice.

Pelosi then tried to bring the press conference back to regular order, telling the protesters that it is "beautiful to our ears" to hear their opinion.

During the 2016 presidential election, Trump ran on a hardline immigration platform, promising to end DACA and build a wall on the border with Mexico to stop immigrants from entering and increase jobs for U.S. workers.

"They don't want the Dream Act", Pelosi told the media after leaving the event, according to an NBC Bay Area report.
