San Francisco values: Pelosi says enforcing immigration laws is “un-American”

As I noted yesterday, the next big shamnesty push is underway at the White House. And Nancy Pelosi is performing her own open-borders sideshow in the House circus tent. If her rhetoric trashing federal ICE agents sounds familiar, well, it’s because Barack Obama engaged in the same smearing during the campaign — when he accused ICE agents of “terrorizing” families.

Pelosi the Patriot goes one step further and asserts that enforcement actions by ICE are “un-American.”

These are San Francisco values at work:

Texas Rep. Lamar Smith gives Pelosi a well-deserved tongue-lashing:

Ranking Member Lamar Smith (R-Texas) today criticized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for recent remarks that insulted federal law enforcement officers.

Congressman Smith’s comments came on the House Floor in response to Pelosi’s remarks at a weekend immigration rally in San Francisco, at which Pelosi said enforcement actions by ICE were “un-American.”

A longtime supporter of efforts to uphold the rule of law, Smith said the comments were particularly regrettable since more than 12 million U.S. citizens and legal immigrant workers are jobless. According to the most recent Pew estimates, more than seven million illegal immigrants are working in the U.S.

Smith commented on the House floor:

“The Wall Street Journal recently reported that Speaker Pelosi called worksite arrests and deportation of illegal workers ‘un-American.’ That’s quite a powerful word – ‘un-American.’ And it’s quite a spectacle to have the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives call the actions of our law enforcement men and women ‘un-American.’

“We should praise them, not insult them, for enforcing our immigration laws.

“Twelve million Americans are out of work. Seven million illegal workers hold jobs that should go to citizens and legal immigrant workers. Let’s let the American people decide what is ‘un-American.’ We should not criticize law enforcement personnel; instead, we should be grateful for the job they do.”

You know what’s un-American?

This. And this. And this. And this.
