Pelosi recently mentioned how illegals can provide “leverage” for Democrats. But could it hide something more sinister? The Free Beacon reports:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) claimed on Wednesday that a vote for the Democratic Party in the coming midterm elections would provide “leverage” to illegal immigrants in the immigration debate.
She made those comments during a press conference held in El Paso, Texas, with immigrant-rights advocates and Veronica Escobar, the Democratic nominee in Texas’ 16th Congressional District. The minority leader officially journeyed to the region in order to gauge the impact of policies instituted by the Trump administration to mitigate unlawful border crossings.
While discussing her opposition to the president’s zero tolerance policy on illegal immigration, which has since been rescinded, Pelosi was asked how long migrants, both lawful and unlawful, would have to wait for Congress to act on comprehensive reform.
The congresswoman asserted she didn’t “want to be political” in her response, before alleging reform would be impossible as long as the Republican Party remained in control of Congress.
The right of CITIZENS of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.
The Congress shall have the power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
NOTE: This amendment does not give anyone the right to vote more than once in the same election or in precincts other than their own. Nor does it confer the right to vote in US elections to foreign nationals. And of course deceased persons are not allowed to vote, even by proxy. Requiring identification to vote does not discriminate against anyone but those not eligible to vote in the first place.
