Protesters ambush nancy pelosi during event

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s recent closed-door talks with President Donald Trump have shaken up Washington, D.C., and led to a possible breakthrough on protecting young undocumented immigrants.

But Pelosi got a taste of the danger any California Democrat faces in getting too close to Trump when a group of angry young protesters hijacked her San Francisco news conference on Monday morning to denounce her negotiations with the president.

About 40 young protesters, including undocumented immigrants from the sanctuary state, surrounded her and unveiled protest banners as she prepared to discuss her work to pass the Dream Act in an event at College Track, an education nonprofit in San Francisco’s Bayview neighborhood.

Shouting at the top of their lungs, the protesters harangued Pelosi for using recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, known as Dreamers, as “bargaining chips” in negotiations with Trump, and for being “complicit” with stepped-up deportations under the eight years of the Obama administration.

Pelosi, who looked on uncomfortably from the middle of the protest, tried several times to talk with the demonstrators, telling them, “I totally agree with you.” But she barely got a few words in edgewise as they continued their call-and-response chants.

“You met with Trump and you call that resistance?” they chanted. “This is what resistance looks like!” they chanted

After about 30 minutes of ceaseless protest, Pelosi walked out the back door of the building, followed by Reps. Barbara Lee, D-Oakland, and Jared Huffman, D-San Rafael, who were also at the event.

  1. Add my name to that list. Pelosi Needs to be forced to donate her entire wealth to the people she stole it from. And that would be “US”… Ice cream included.
