The House minority leader told reporters that Congress will just grant ‘DREAMers’ citizenship, not amnesty.
Touting negotiations on a possible DREAM Act with President Trump, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that Democrats are only looking to give illegal immigrants brought to the United States as children only citizenship, not amnesty.
Pelosi’s statement is confusing given that citizenship granted to illegal immigrants could be a form of amnesty.
“We’re not looking at amnesty. We’re never looking at amnesty,” Pelosi told reporters. Instead, Pelosi is trying to achieve an “earned path to citizenship” for DREAMers.
“This is an earned path to citizenship. whether it’s work, military service, education,” she said.
Pelosi also lamented how some people in the United States are not considered citizens, and that those people should be allowed to “earn citizenship.”
President Trump made similar comments on the plane to Florida this morning:
Asked whether he favors "amnesty," @POTUS – boarding Air Force 1 – shouted back: "The word is DACA."
