Nancy Pelosi Calls for DREAM Act to Be Passed – This Surprising Group Shuts Her Down

What happened?

A group of young undocumented immigrants shouted down House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi at a news conference Monday in San Francisco. She was advocating for the DREAM Act, legislation that would protect illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children, to be passed into law immediately.

Pelosi tried to respond to the crowd but eventually had to give up and leave. She had started her speech by calling the “DREAMers,” a term used for illegal immigrants brought here as children, “an inspiration to all of us.”

What did they want?

A local CBS outlet reported a list of their demands:

  • “We undocumented youth demand a clean bill.”
  • “We undocumented youth demand that you do not sell out our community and our values.”
  • “We undocumented youth will not be a bargaining chip for Trump.”

Glenn’s take:

“If you live by lawlessness, you are going to die by it,” Glenn said, explaining how Democrats have tried to push the boundaries of the law, and their unlawful decisions are now backfiring on them. The undocumented immigrant protesters were using the same tactics that other liberal causes have employed, shouting down Pelosi before she could even speak.

“She looked helpless,” he said of Pelosi at the press conference.

GLENN: If you live by lawlessness, you are going to die by it, and that is the double-edged sword that first the Democrats are starting to be cut by. But the Republicans will be cut by it just the same.

Nancy Pelosi experienced it firsthand yesterday. Dreamer press conference in San Francisco.

She looked helpless, and even a little bit scared as pro-immigration activists shouted her down, using the same tactics that Occupy Wall Street used on conservatives just a few years ago.

VOICE: We are immigrant! You are undocumented and unafraid.

VOICE: We are immigrant. You are undocumented and unafraid!

GLENN: So how did Pelosi not see this coming? When the Democrats used hurricane relief funding for a budget deal, hardly anybody on the left even batted an eye.

But now they've done basically the same thing with DACA. And they've shelved it to pursue legislation that has already failed.

In other words, they're holding it ransom, while they watch the political fallout from another failed bill.

We have to ask ourselves, both left and right, does anybody who actually believes in open borders and mass amnesty still think the Democrats still care about DACA and children?

No. It's about power, and it's about money. Does anybody on the right actually believe that the Republicans still actually care about border security, and when it comes to health care, freedom of choice and small government?

No. It's about money and power.

We are going to wake up to some real problems if we don't start focusing on things that matter and start telling the truth.

Trump, Schumer, and Pelosi, they're all making deals. The problem is, they're bad for both sides. Vast majority of those on both the left and the right want real lasting change. What happens when everybody in the country that wants change has four to eight more years of the status quo? We just keep switching seats, switching sides of the argument, but nothing is changing.

Maybe the better question is: Who is going to eventually rise up that isn't rising up on violence or hatred? Who is it that is going to rise up and promise something different, promise a true choice, true freedom, and real peace and prosperity?

INSANITY: High schooler ARRESTED after not wearing mask at school tells her story

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

Jason Whitlock: Raiders coach fired by NFL as a ‘SIGNAL’ to others

Raiders Head Coach Jon Gruden was forced to resign (fired) by the NFL on Monday due to 'misogynistic' and 'homophobic' language found in several of his old, private emails. But Jason Whitlock, sports writer and host of 'Fearless' on BlazeTV, tells Glenn that Gruden's words never should have resulted in his job lost: 'We should have accepted his apology and kept it moving.' But instead, Whitlock says the NFL chose to use Gruden as a 'signal' for all other employees who may oppose the football organization's current, far-left political stances: 'Taking over sports, taking over the NFL, is crucial to the goals of the left and what they're trying to do.'

How an ‘orchestrated’ revolution is bringing America TO ITS KNEES

Victor Davis Hanson, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, joins Glenn to discuss his new book, 'The Dying Citizen.' He explains how America's hippies from the 1960s are the progressive elites running our institutions today and how their 'well orchestrated' moves have created a top-down revolution that's 'bringing us down to our knees.' So, what's the solution? Davis Hanson tells Glenn what we can do to push back against the far left today…

Who Is More Evil: Government or Facebook? | Robby Soave | Ep 120

The Left and Right agree: Social media companies like Facebook are abusing their power — whether through censorship or harmful, groupthink-creating algorithms. But is the solution really more censorship and regulation, like government fearmongers and leftist "whistleblowers" have insisted? Glenn sits down with the senior editor at Reason, Robby Soave, who has a much more refreshing solution laid out in his latest book, "Tech Panic: Why We Shouldn't Fear Facebook and the Future." Politicians have weaponized the fear we have about social media. So, maybe we should be looking at the positives. Glenn and Robby take a look at the (very familiar) history of tech panic and censorship, balance the consequences of changing Section 230, and expose the real threat to the future of free speech: Progressive tyranny entrenched in the old school media.
