WATCH: Pelosi Argues “a Violation of (Immigration) Status is Not a Reason for Deportation”

Speaker Nancy Pelosi made waves by arguing that violating immigration status should not be a reason for “deportation.”

Her comments come just after President Trump delayed ICE raids, and Democrats are pushing for mass amnesty.

Daily Caller reported that Pelosi said Monday that a violation of immigration status should not be a reason to deport someone illegally living in the U.S.

At an event in New York, Pelosi recalled a recent phone call with President Donald Trump, where the two reportedly spoke about the Democrats desire to delay scheduled deportations. On the phone call, Pelosi reportedly told Trump that “a violation of status is not a reason for deportation,” saying there are over 10 million people who could face deportation.

“I said ‘a violation of status is not a reason for deportation,’ that’s just not so,” Pelosi said she told Trump. “If you have some case you want to make about somebody who’s been accused … that has nothing to do with violation of status, because then we’re talking about over 10 million people who may be subjected to this treatment, and what we need there is comprehensive immigration reform with a path to citizenship.”
