#TSRPolitics: Who said politics couldn’t be entertaining or shady? House Speaker #NancyPelosi is known to match #Trump’s shade, but lately, she’s really had her petty boots on when it comes to his immigration policy.
Right out the gate, Nancy called out Trump’s proposed “merit-based” immigration plan that would also curb family-based migration, saying its real aim was to “make America white again,” according to @huffpost.
Nancy took things a step further by throwing a lil shade at the first lady. “I don’t know if merit counted for when his wife’s family came into the country,” Nancy said of Trump. “I don’t know. Maybe it did. God bless them if it did. But he calls that ‘chain migration,’ which he wants to get rid of.”
Whew! Nancy had even more to say.
“Should we attach a green card to the diploma of so many scientists and engineers and all the rest and graduate students who train in the U.S. so that they can stay here?” Nancy added. “Of course. But that’s not the point. The point is that the president does not share the view of even Ronald Reagan and two Bushes in recent history.”
Trump outlined his immigration proposals in a White House Rose Garden speech last week. The proposals aim to curb family-based migration and increase the number of visas offered to skilled workers.
Several lawmakers have noted that the plan is unlikely to garner bipartisan support.
Nancy, meanwhile, is receiving some criticism as she continues to resist growing calls to begin the process of impeaching Trump, who last week shared a doctored video of her on Twitter.
Roommates, what are your thoughts on Trump’s proposed immigration policies and Nancy Pelosi’s response? Let us know!
