Gridlock in Washington: Majority of Americans Say Immigration Reform Unlikely Anytime Soon

LifeZette Editor-in-Chief Laura Ingraham warned that there is "an entitlement mentality for a whole new generation of people who are in this country" illegally after a group of immigrants shouted down House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) at a Monday press conference, during an interview Tuesday on Fox News' "Fox & Friends". The Bay Area protesters took their ire out on Pelosi since she and U.S. Congressman Chuck Schumer, also a Democrat, had been in discussions with President Donald Trump about the issue.

He pointed out that Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer met with President Trump in an effort to strike a deal on the "Dreamers" behalf, and now "Dreamers" and DACA-supporting protesters are turning on them.

"We're in this fight to win for the dreamers, when it's easier and when it's harder", she said at the Sacramento event. The Obama-era policy provided temporary status for some people brought to the country illegally as children.

A new poll shows that only 35% of likely US voters think it's likely comprehensive immigration reform legislation will pass the Senate and House and be signed by President Trump in the next six months.

However, she could not speak over the protests.

At the Sac State event, Pelosi said No. 45 is on board with allowing DREAMers a lawful passage for permanent residents and American citizenship.

"There are some who showed up in San Francisco and said all or none, we're not going to do the DREAMers unless we do comprehensive immigration reform", she said, adding, "we don't have that opportunity now".

We remember all too well how for eight years the Democrats laid siege to our communities, raiding and deporting almost three million people, of our family members and loved ones.

Only the August 26 PPV that was headlined by Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor is expected to outsell Saturday's PPV this year. Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin are two of the very best in the sport today, and perhaps of all time .

Russian helicopter 'accidentally fires rocket near onlookers'
A spokesman said: "As a result of a strike by an unguided rocket, a cargo vehicle with no people on board was damaged". RBC news agency reports that the injured people "weren't civilians", according to comments quoted by The Guardian .

LifeZette's editor-in-chief said that the scene the illegal immigrants created with Pelosi Monday offers further evidence that Trump's emphasis on enforcing the rule of law, cracking down on illegal immigration, and promoting national interests is needed desperately. Outside the venue, Pelosi told reporters, "We want comprehensive immigration reform". But the shouting did not stop.

They also complained that the Obama administration had systematically deported hundreds of thousands of people.

"I think we will recall what happened when [Trump] went to Europe for his first big trip to Europe, when he urged our allies to contribute more under the obligations financially to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and to their military, to their own peacekeeping and defense", she said.

Pelosi replied, "Yes, yes, yes, yes I am, yes I am", with the crowd responding, "You are a liar!".

In response to the Pelosi statement, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted that "DACA and border security were discussed", but "excluding the wall was certainly not agreed to".

The Democrats say a deal has been reached, but the White House denies it. "And basically our conversation with Trump is, we don't want to hear about anything that you may want to do unless we have shared values around the Dreamers". Eventually Pelosi was forced off stage.

Pelosi, meanwhile, told The Associated Press on Friday that she and Schumer are looking for ways to build trust and confidence with Trump.

"I'm a believer in America First", Joe Dahlstrom, 45, a Mesa golf course owner, said as misters sprayed him and his 4-year-old daughter, Gracyn, outside the Panera Bread where they stopped on Thursday night for a family dinner.
