Pelosi Shouted Down by Activists Over DACA Deal With Trump

Pelosi, standing alongside Reps.

"Stop it. Just stop it now", Pelosi repeated over and over. Many of those so-called Dreamers are set to lose work permits and deportation protections after Trump rescinded the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. Barbara Lee and Jared Huffman, both Democrats from California.

The Democratic leader was barely able to speak over the chorus of chants Monday, including shouts of "undocumented and unafraid".

Democrats are not the resistance of Trump.

The Democrats say a deal has been reached, but the White House denies it.

After the Republican-led Congress' failure to repeal President Barack Obama's health care law, when Trump cracked open the door of bipartisanship, the two Hill veterans barged through full-force. "They won't listen to any response.they don't know what we've done". They were looking for ways to "build some trust and confidence" with Trump, Pelosi, D-Calif., said in an interview Friday.

When the protesters began shouting again, Pelosi herself raised her voice.

During the 2016 presidential election, Trump ran on a hardline immigration platform, promising to end DACA and build a wall on the border with Mexico to stop immigrants from entering and increase jobs for USA workers.

As Pelosi stood there with her staff, the crowd of protesters closed in on her, surrounding those assembled for the news conference.

"Shut down ICE!" Dreamers confront Nancy Pelosi about immigration, negotiations with Trump over DACA.

"They don't want the Dream Act", Pelosi told the media after leaving the event, according to an NBC Bay Area report.
