Rep. Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday evening joined Sen. Kamala Harris in calling for the head of DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in response to the separation of illegal immigrant families at the border. She can’t think of anything more barbaric than using children as leverage.
.@SecNielsen must resign. This is not an immigration issue, it is a humanitarian issue. Children are being used by the Trump Admin to create leverage, with a goal of passing Trump’s anti-immigrant agenda. I struggle to think of anything more barbaric. #FamiliesBelongTogether

Maybe Pelosi should turn her attention instead to her pal Sen. Chuck Schumer, whose approach to the whole issue seems less than genuine.
Top Senate Dem preemptively comes out against all GOP proposals on family separation issue. “Schumer said they want to keep the focus on Trump.”
Rejecting compromise solutions looks cynical amid humanitarian crisis. Is this about the kids, or Trump? https://t.co/y0oom8ayYH

It seems as though the focus ought to be on passing bipartisan legislation rather than calling for resignations and keeping the focus on Trump.
Not an immigration issue? https://t.co/98xYFbhSr3

No Nancy, it's a legal issue. https://t.co/v6KoOteChM

Sigh. What is inhumane is adults dragging children through Central America/Mexico OR sending them with traffickers because they think children are a "get in free" card. So why don't you and Chuck get to work on legislation. @NancyPelosi https://t.co/wtYGn0JKcK

Children are being used by you & Democrats just like you did to DACA/Dreamers then refused to come to the table to resolve it. Pelosi & Democrats are nothing more than child abusers… criminals who do not go by Rule of law. Pelosi a damn liar and should resign. #TermLimits

Nancy, it appears you are using children as leverage. Cross the border at any of the 25 LEGAL Port of Entry, families stay together.Cross illegally and the adult is charged with a misdemeanor and is separated from their children until the legal issue is resolved, like US citizens

@realDonaldTrump is only keeping his promise and doing what he said he was going to do. Just go away, Foolosi. @SecNielsen isn’t going anywhere. I’m sure your constituents would love to know that you care more about foreign invaders than the American people

Unfortunately we’ve known who she and the others like Swalwell and Harris are. We can’t seem to vote them out due to the illegals and socialists who have taken over the Bay Area. It’s beyond time for a change.

It would have been nice when Dems under O worked together to create a better/permanent reform! What you all did was just patch up the issue, use immigration as a platform to get re-elected, now we have a mess in our hands and all you can’t think about is calling for resignation?

Congress, which includes you, needs to carry out its responsibility. You have been dodging this issue too long & that’s why we are in this situation today – Congress has failed to do its job. Executive branch carrying out the law you passed. You’re being disingenuous as usual.

How long have you been in office again Nancy? Are the laws on the books from 1996 (Clinton administration)? Did Obama administration separate children? Did those children end up with human traffickers? #WeThePeople know more than you think….
