    Pelosi give up that chair as speaker of the house - let the squad take over already - you make no sense to the American people who love this country.

    If you raise my tax withholdings because I have to financially support illegal immigrants I want the names of those illegal immigrants I'm supporting to add them to my taxes as a deduction next tax time.

    It has finally occurred to me that the democratic strategy to deal will illegal immigration is to turn the USA into a place where no one even wants to come to.

    People who describe other humans fleeing US sponsored dictatorships as "aliens" have no merit! The immigrant children dying in cages have inherent merit and the criminals who've separated them from their families should be jailed.
    Pelosi is silent on US concentration camps and kidnapping. She is the co-facilitator of Trumps crimes.

    Is she so desperate as to try to convince the public that the immigration needs now are the same they were in the 80s? "Merit," is defined in the laws made by congress, not the president! I'm so sick of them acting as if they are not the lawmakers! Trump is enforcing the law, that's his job! Maybe Pelosi and the rest of them should look up what their jobs are!

    See if you can understand this: If your parents break the law to get you into college, you should be expelled from school, they should be indicted, charged and convicted of a felony and may serve some time in jail. ALTHOUGH . . . .If your parents break the law to get you into this country .... You should be given a FREE education, healthcare on the American taxpayers dime and EVERYONE should be given AMNESTY. That my dear friend is the logic of a Liberal Democrat.

    I keep hearing the Democrats complain about everything that Trump does but I can’t find what they would rather do. I will vote democrat next time if they truely intend to give Medicare for All, but the border must be closed first. However, I’m starting to hear rumors that the Democrats are now thinking Medicare for Some. Since I’m middle income that usually means others will get it and I will pay for it, but I won’t get any benefit from it.

    What I don't understand is why do all newcomers have to be people of color I'm white and feel like nobody wants white people coming into the country anymore like there's something wrong with us I mean why is everybody so racist against white people it makes me feel like nobody wants white people around as a white person I feel that way and especially since they're acting like it's a bad thing for white people to come into the u.s. I feel like there is horrible
    racism against white Americans than there is against people of color I refuse to be ashamed of my skin these days it's very important to not fall into a racism trap way of thinking it's important to make all rights equal all races equal I'm white and I have never felt special or important

    The Democrats controlled all of congress for two years during president Obama's first term (who promised to address immigration and gun control in his first term), for a time with a filibuster-proof senate. They did absolutely nothing on immigration nor gun control. NOTHING! They had the votes, opportunity and duty to make substantive changes to these issues and didn't. Can any Democrat explain this please?

Vote all DemoRATS out in 2020, we don't want you anymore! Trump 2020! And shut the border down, turn the illegals away or flew them on a jet back to,their country as soon as possible!

    Good God Nancy! Do the 'strawman' much? Redefine terms? I know that you are not stupid so obviously you are lying! Since POTUS has made a point to define what he means by 'merit' multiple times why don't you use HIS definition instead of making up your own?

    Leave it to Nancy Pelosi to find the word "merit" condescending! Nancy, it's all good, absolutely nothing wrong with the word, just relax!!! And by the way, Americans do support legislation that includes a pathway to citizenship, but we want good people that will love and be proud to be Americans. Americans support Trump's plans for a "merit-based" immigration policy, not your plan to bring in anti-American flag burners, drug dealers, criminals, and all the bad apples that want to enter the United States illegally.

If you think she is doing everything for her base and not her own personal agenda you would be wrong.

    She doesn’t want merit she wants low educated dependent immigrants that democrats can hook on social programs and get them to vote for democrats. It’s the same plan Lyndon Johnson had for blacks in the 60’s. It’s like a drug dealer. Give them just enough so they can survive and they will never move up and will always come back for the fix. It’s the worst kind of racism known to man, just above slavery.

      Someone with a legal mind needs to understand that the law that allows anchor babies was intended to prevent children of slaves from being disenfranchised from their birthright. It was never intended for illegals or foreign nationals to come here and produce American citizens.

      @Steven Rodriguez No one saying to stop immigration. They're saying to start controlling it like we always have. All four of my grandparents were immigrants. They had to have money in the bank, a place to live, a job ready for them before they could even come here. And they waited and waited until they were allowed. They didn't rush the border or come here illegally as if they were more important than anyone else.

Here is the Speaker ‘s immigration reform plan 🧐🧐🧐: 1) Eliminate ICE, border patrol agents, US Customs agents and teardown that “immoral wall.” 2) Allow IMMEDIATE entry to all those seeking “asylum,” irrespective of criminal background 👏😊! 3) Rapists, the criminally insane, MS 13 gang members, drug and human traffickers, child molesters, murders, drug addicts, welfare families with lots and lots of children and people with active tuberculosis, measles,etc,etc,etc, and etc are all welcome in the NEW PROGRESSIVE COUNTRY 👏🇺🇸👏🇺🇸✋🇺🇸👏🇺🇸👏!
