‘NOT A BARGAINING CHIP’

DREAMer Protest Shuts Down Nancy Pelosi Press Conference

A group of DREAMer protesters on Monday interrupted a press conference run by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, demanding she “not sell out” by compromising with President Trump to pass immigration legislation. “We undocumented youth will not be a bargaining chip for Trump's xenophobic agenda,” they shouted. The protest comes after Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said last week that they made a deal with Trump to extend protections for young undocumented immigrants and finalize a border security deal that does not include building a wall along the Mexican border.
