Families who have been impacted by crimes committed by illegal aliens stormed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office on Tuesday, demanding that the California Democrat “build the wall.”
Pelosi reportedly refused to meet with the families, who have lost family members to illegal aliens, which comes as Democrats have refused to work with the Trump administration to provide national security funding to secure the southern border.
The families gathered in front of the U.S. Capitol Building with Reps. Mo Brooks (R-AL), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Women for Trump, and others to “put faces to the statistics of Americans killed or injured due to illegal aliens and the drugs that flow in the U.S. at the southern border.”
After the gathering, the families went to Pelosi’s office where they chanted “build the wall.”
This is the second incident Pelosi has had to deal with this week as right-wing activist Laura Loomer brought a group of alleged illegal aliens to Pelosi’s home in California on Monday.
“Come on, you can’t say everyone is welcome here and then lock your door,” Loomer said, adding: “only bigots lock their doors.”
“You’re killing us, Nancy!” Loomer continued. “You’re killing us!”
According to a report from right-wing outlet The American Mirror in 2018 (see photos, here), and begrudgingly backed by left-wing fact-checking site Snopes, Pelosi has a barrier around a multimillion-dollar property she and her husband own in Napa Valley.
According to The Washington Post, the estate was worth around $5 million in 2011, and brought in “at least $5,000 worth of grape sales from the vineyard, according to financial disclosure forms for 2010.” (Nancy and Paul Pelosi, by the way, are estimated to be worth somewhere between $58.7 and $72.1 million.)
An ad from the pro-Trump group America First Policies this week highlighted Mary Ann Mendoza, whose son Brandon was killed when he was hit by an illegal alien who was driving intoxicated.
“I want to have the border wall funded,” Mendoza said. “We need to have border security.”
“The system absolutely failed Brandon, failed myself, and is failing America,” Mendoza continued. “I just feel like we’ve become collateral damage.”
On Tuesday, Mendoza said while in Washington, D.C., with U.S. lawmakers: “It’s not a matter of if you’re going to be affected by illegal alien crime, it’s when you are going to be affected.”
“As the president and Congressional Democrats square off on border security, more asylum seekers are beginning the long trek through Guatemala and Mexico to declare their intent to enter the U.S. at a handful of border crossings in California and Texas,” The Daily Wire reported on Tuesday. “The new caravan numbers near a thousand, though reports indicate they are leaving in shifts of 300-500.”
