Young immigrants shout down Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi

Young immigrants shout down Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi

Moments later, she was forced to leave the news conference. "We must strike while the iron is hot and get this done in a matter of days".

Pelosi, California Democrat, was speaking to a crowd in San Francisco, a group of so-called Dreamers or DACA recipients, people brought to the USA illegally as children, overtook the stage and began chanting. "They won't listen to any response.they don't know what we've done". "Democrats created an out-of-control deportation machine and handed it over to Trump. Make America dream again", Pelosi said to applause from the partisan crowd.

A discombobulated Pelosi exclaimed, "You don't?!". "They don't want any answers".

DACA recipients and their supporters have been pressing for what they call "a clean Dream Act", meaning protections without conditions. DACA has been controversial since former President Barack Obama implemented the policy because of questions regarding its constitutionality.

"We're in this fight to win for the dreamers, when it's easier and when it's harder", she told reporters later after a similar - but quieter - event in Sacramento.

Trump recently announced plans to halt DACA.

United had hoped to have him back in time for the clash with rivals Liverpool on October 14, but could be without him for longer. BBC reporter Phil McNulty has claimed that Everton "knew from March" that striker Romelu Lukaku would leave the club.

Last week, Pelosi and Democratic Senate Leader Chuck Schumer met with Trump twice and discussed a deal to extend the program.

"You called this press conference in our name to defend the so-called Dream Act, but you already traded in our parents in our name", the Dreamers chanted amid a series of other accusations.

The appearance at Pelosi's press conference was intended "to demand a clean youth bill that doesn't hurt parents, community members, and leads to more deportation and crackdowns", the California Immigrant Youth Justice Alliance wrote on its website.

Numerous demonstrators were carrying signs reading "Democrats are Deporters".

Schumer and Pelosi said they reached a deal with the White House that did not include funding for Trump's promised border wall.

The protestors, who described themselves as undocumented youth, were denouncing Pelosi's tentative agreement with President Trump to work together on passage of some form of relief for immigrant youth. "We undocumented youth will not be a bargaining chip for Trump", according to coverage by Doug Sovern of KCBS News.
