House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday at her weekly press briefing that the Trump administration’s immigration policy caused recent migrants deaths in the Rio Grande River which she believes has now become “the face of America around the world.”
Pelosi said, becoming emotional, “Can you just imagine, the father put the little girl on shore to go back to get the mother, and the little girl wanted to be with her father, she got back in. And then he couldn’t save her, and he couldn’t save himself. This is such a tragedy. ”
“Understand the consequences of policy,” Pelosi continued. “I’m sure that nobody decided to have a policy would say, and I don’t care if this happens,’ but it does happen.”
“I just think it’s such a shame for that to be the face of America around the world. So let’s just step back from it from a policy standpoint,” she added. “This family was coming in, but they have narrowed the number of people coming through the ports of entry, so they were coming in not through the ports of entry.”
These Deaths Happened Under Obama Also
Everyone’s heart goes out to this family and the horrific ordeal they went through.
But this also happened during the Obama administration–and some say his policies might have even encouraged such deaths.
Folks need to stop suggesting that people dying on the border is a new phenomenon. It’s been going on for years. Same story, from back in 2014…https://t.co/s7mhejKasG

Reporting on the many migrant deaths occurring in the same way we saw the tragedy this week, The Daily Mail reported in 2014, “How many precious lives must be needlessly lost, women raped, girls forced into sex trafficking or people trapped into the drug trade before the Obama administration stops luring them here with continued grants of amnesty, legal status, work permits, and benefits?’ asked Rep. Louie Gohmert.

“Democrats don’t care that Obama’s rhetoric is getting people killed,” Rep. Steve Stockman added. “They come here specifically because they believe Obama will give them amnesty. Democrats are willing to let illegals risk their lives just so Democrats can have a wedge issue to agitate their liberal base before an election.”
Did Democrats care as much when Obama’s policies were encouraging similar migrant deaths?
Did Nancy Pelosi?
