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.

[inaudible conversations]

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?

Are electric vehicles REALLY the best solution? Here are the FACTS

Electric vehicles are the wave of the future. They are so much better for the environment. At least that's what we have been told, but is this correct?

On his TV special, Glenn Beck explained how electric vehicles (EVs) might not actually be the environmental solution we've been led to believe. In fact, they may not be a solution at all.

Glenn shared a recent article from LiveScience that reported:

A 2014 study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences looked at the entire life cycle of an EV's emissions, from mining the metals required for the batteries to producing the electricity needed to power them, and then compared this with the average emissions of a gas-powered vehicle. The team found that when electric vehicles are charged with coal-powered electricity, they're actually worse for the environment than conventional gasoline cars.

He next shared an article from The Greenage, which stated:

The Union of Concerned Scientists has calculated that manufacturing a mid-sized EV with an 84-mile range results in about 15 percent more emissions than manufacturing an equivalent gasoline vehicle. For larger, longer-range EVs that travel more than 250 miles per charge, the manufacturing emissions can be as much as 68 percent higher.

Noting how electric vehicles and other fossil-fuel alternatives require the use of mined minerals like lithium, cobalt, zinc, copper, and nickel, among others, Glenn quoted an International Energy Agency report that warned reaching the goals of the Paris Agreement "would mean a quadrupling of mineral requirements for clean energy technologies by 2040. An even faster transition, to hit net-zero globally by 2050, would require six times more mineral inputs in 2040 than today."

"Can [you] predict which country is the world leader in processing the minerals needed for these batteries? Right, China," Glenn stated. "The average EV requires over 200 kilograms of minerals. The average gas vehicle requires 40 kilograms of minerals, mostly copper. A single EV has 22 pounds of lithium in it ... yet another way that the green reset of American energy is putting us all at the mercy of Communist China."

"Oh, and remember during the Obama administration when the world was gonna end' over fracking?" Glenn asked. "Well, the Institute for Energy Research now says, and I quote, 'Mining and processing of lithium, however, turns out to be far more environmentally harmful than what turned out to be the unfounded issues with fracking.'"

Glenn Beck Presents: The 1776 Report the Left Didn't Want You to See

We've heard a lot about the 1776 Commission over the past several months. From the mainstream media, you've heard lies and slander: It was a racist panel put together by President Trump to peddle a whitewashed version of American history.

In reality, the 1776 Commission was established by President Trump in the fall of 2020 with the purpose of promoting "patriotic education." Not to mandate it, not to propose legislation – simply to PROMOTE it. The media and academia lost their minds over this now controversial idea that we should teach young Americans to appreciate the nation they've inherited. And predictably, just hours after Biden took the oath of office, he signed an executive order to dissolve the 1776 Commission, calling the commission's report "offensive and counterfactual."

Glenn Beck presents the 1776 Commission's report in its entirety, because unlike the media and President Biden who want to hide it from you, Glenn wants you to seek the truth and celebrate Independence Day with pride.

Watch a preview below or catch the FULL, 5-part presentation of the 1776 Report on BlazeTV.com or Glenn Beck's YouTube channel.

The Left’s WORST Nightmare: Our Constitution | 1776 Report | Part 3

Glenn presents Part 3 of the 1776 Commission's report, examining the U.S. Constitution and its unique design for limited government. It is a testament to the wisdom and skill of America's Founders that the Constitution they produced remains the longest continually operating written constitution in all of human history. They managed to design a government with enough power to secure rights, without having so much power that it enables government to infringe rights. But protecting those rights against Marxism and similar ideologies is a never-ending struggle. WATCH the full special without the wait at https://blazetv.com/glenn

WATCH: Green New Steal: The Great Reset of Energy

The Biden White House is working overtime on the great reset of energy. A major part of the president's agenda is focused on the leftist pipe dream of the U.S. reaching net zero emissions, economy-wide, by no later than 2050.

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the fine print, dirty secrets, and very inconvenient truths about the Left's green agenda to "save the world." The Left's solutions of solar, wind, and electric vehicles are driven by climate change hysteria that will doom America to long-term failure and submission to our foreign enemies. But as Glenn reveals, not everything is as green as it's being sold to you.
