NANCY PELOSI STATEMENT ON TRUMP ICE RAIDS

Nancy Pelosi



Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi issued this statement after the Trump Administration conducted sweeping raids across Northern California that resulted in the arrest of more than 150 men and women, at least half of whom did not have a criminal record:


“The Trump Administration’s raids were a shocking abuse of law enforcement power. Yet again, the White House has reached into our communities to indiscriminately detain scores of hard-working, law-abiding immigrants.


“Fully half of those swept up in the ICE raids have no criminal record. This raid was intended solely to terrorize innocent immigrant families and instill fear in the hearts of our communities – not to keep Americans safe. Parents will now be torn from their children, and spouses ripped away from their loved ones.


“The Administration continues to brazenly target the cities that refuse to bow to its blatantly bigoted anti-immigrant and mass deportation agenda. The people of the San Francisco Bay Area will continue to oppose these cowardly attacks, and we will remain open to the patriotic immigrants who are the constant reinvigoration of America.”

Jorge Garcia's Family On "The View"



Jorge Garcia, the undocumented father of two deported to Mexico this week, speaks out along with his family.


On why Jorge was deported


"The system failed us." Jorge's wife, Cindy Garcia said. "It's a broken immigration system and it needs to be fixed."


On their family's dread knowing Jorge's deportation date was coming.


"We didn't want to let him go." Jorge's wife and children emotionally share their experience: "It was devastating, because we knew our nightmare was coming to life... We were grieving. It was a death."


Jorge's message to Pres. Trump


"We're supposed to only deport people that are criminals. That's not what's going on. They're only basically hurting the economy and separating families just like mine."


On losing the family's primary source of income


"God is gonna pull me through this." Cindy discussed how she will support her family after her husband Jorge, who has been the family's primary source of income, was been deported to Mexico. "[God has] given me the power to speak up for everybody."

"We're at a point now where he's done so much stuff, it's hard to even pinpoint the most shocking thing he's done — I wasn't surprised by this at all," guest co-host Yvette Nicole Brown said.


"I don't know if the evangelicals will care about it because they don't care about what he does," Joy Behar said. "It goes against their religion, they don't care — as long as he gets whatever they want."





Hot Topics: The co-hosts reflect on the Garcia family's story


"We were all immigrants at one point in time and throwing people out who have become Americans, who are not a threat to society, no criminal record ... it goes against ... the values that our country is based on," Meghan McCain said.


"The party of family values needs to step in and keep this family and others like it together and stop preaching lies about family values!" Behar said.


"We are better as a country [because of] our diversity," Sunny Hostin said. "But we know that. The man that is in power now does not know that ... even though he wants his wives to be imported in..." Yvette Nicole Brown added.
