A “shocking abuse of law enforcement power”
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi issued a statement Wednesday attacking the Trump administration over raids on over 150 illegal aliens in Northern California, calling it a “shocking abuse of law enforcement power.”
“Yet again, the White House has reached into our communities to indiscriminately detain scores of hard-working, law-abiding immigrants.” Pelosi wrote, despite the fact that she admitted that half of those swept up have criminal records, and all of them are in the US illegally.
Trump Admin raids in the San Francisco Bay Area were a shocking abuse of law enforcement power which solely served to terrorize innocent immigrant families.
Fully half of those swept up in the ICE raids have no criminal record. Tearing parents away from children & spouses away from loved ones – it’s clear the intent of this sweep was not to keep Americans safe. Read my full statement: https://goo.gl/3saiqr
