Pelosi tells Dems to spread 'know your rights' campaign ahead of ICE raids

Source: Politico


By SARAH FERRIS 07/11/2019 11:20 AM EDT

Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday warned her caucus about President Donald Trump’s planned immigration raids this weekend, urging members to spread information about unauthorized immigrants' legal rights.

Speaking to a closed-door whips meeting, Pelosi urged members to spread the party’s “know your rights” campaign, according to two people in the room. Democrats took the same approach earlier this year, when faced with Department of Homeland Security’s initial threat of mass deportation raids.

Those mass arrests, first reported by the New York Times, are expected to begin Sunday in nearly a dozen metro areas. The raids — which are backed by Trump — had initially been delayed after disagreements within the administration.

Pelosi also told members that she planned to reach out to religious leaders to encourage them to oppose the efforts, as she did last month when Trump first threatened the raids, one person said. Pelosi also spoke to Trump by phone last month and urged him to call off his plans.

3. What lead you to believe that?

"I thought if Nancy gave him a bajillion dollars that he would call off the raids..."

What lead you to believe that?

8. When ICE is equipped with riot gear and military weapons

and they bust into homes, they do so knowing they are disregarding rights.

That is why they do it equipped with all that military grade equipment.

They get off on startling women and children in the dead of night all dressed up in black armor and military weapons.

Makes them feel big.

11. yep. hostility in spades
