Other Opinion: Trump dares to dream

Nancy Pelosi gets into yelling match with Dreamer protesters ‘Just stop it now

"Dreamers" is a nickname used for young immigrants brought to the country illegally as children or by parents who overstayed visas. VIDEO: TIMELINE: What led to Pres. Trump's decision to end DACA " I think where we might disagree is that we have an opportunity now to protect hundreds of thousands of DREAMers while we keep working on the bigger picture of comprehensive immigration reform", he said. They said they would not help Dreamers without the guarantee of certain other measures, potentially including ones that would slash legal immigration and ramp up deportation efforts.

Pelosi's advisory said she was joining Reps.

At a San Francisco press conference on Monday to promote a bipartisan DREAM Act, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and fellow Democratic representatives Barbara Lee and Jared Huffman, all of California, were shouted down by pro-DACA protesters who complained that the lawmakers were compromising with President Trump too much.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi praised parents that travelled to the USA illegally with their children as having done "a great thing" for the nation during her weekly press conference Wednesday.

The protesters chanted "We undocumented youth demand a clean bill ..." "But when they interrupt again, she says 'Just stop it now!'"

Pelosi is in her home city to call for legislation that would protect young immigrants brought to the USA illegally as children or by parents who overstayed visas.

Earlier this month, the Trump administration said it would end the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program in six months, unless congress acted to approve it.

Prior to the protesters showing up, Pelosi described a dinner she had with Trump and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, where they discussed what it would take to get the DREAM Act - which has been kicking around the Senate since 2001 - passed into law.

By doing so, they would answer, to their own detriment, the question Trump posed on Twitter Thursday morning: "Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military?" "Democrats are not the resistance to Trump".

Sacramento State students seniors and music majors Beatriz Figueroa, left, and Diana Campos, right, hold signs opposing deportation of DACA recipients at the news conference featuring House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, Congresswoman Doris Matsui and other local legislators in the University Union Redwood Room Monday.

The Dream Act would seal the fate of 800,000 DREAMers now protected under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA.

"Democrats created an out-of-control deportation machine and handed it over to Trump", they said. "She says, 'You're not helping the situation.' The Democrats are the situation, and I'm not talking about the guy from the Jersey Shore". But she and her colleagues are against some other things the President is trying to throw in the deal, such as building wall on the border of Mexico. They also demanded a "clean bill" without any provisions for additional border security, as Mr. Trump said he wants.
