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.”

"This scares me," Sara Haines responded to Pres. Trump's claim that Russia connection was invented to explain his election. "From our own president, we're getting something that ... was made up. There was proof there was meddling from a foreign power in our election. That is not arguable!"

GENE SIMMONS TELLS IMMIGRANTS TO LEARN ENGLISH

Gene Simmons



KISS frontman Gene Simmons appeared on HuffPost Live and spoke with host Ricky Camilleri about KISS's new tour and the reality series "4th and Loud." But the conversation quickly turned into Simmons opining about immigrants today and their reluctance, in his mind, to learn English.


Gene Simmons: "I'm actually saying the thing that needs to be said, because the politically-correct climate is bullshit."



Ricky Camilleri: "What is the politically-correct climate in regards to immigrants though?"



Simmons: "You don't want to upset anybody by saying, 'Learn to speak goddamn English.' So, as an immigrant, I'm telling you: learn to speak goddamn English. It is the key that will unlock the keys to the kingdom. If you make the effort then all the possibilities of this culture will open up for you and give you all the rewards that I've gotten."



Camilleri: "You don't think that's easier said than done for some people though?"



Simmons: "Of course it's difficult but why should it be easy?... How about this: if Siri can't understand you, you're in trouble."
