Nancy Pelosi held a town hall-style meeting on CNN and argued that ‘sanctuary cities’ make American safer, until a woman whose son was killed by an illegal immigrant challenged such a claim.
“It makes us safer because people (illegals) can — can, go to school,” Pelosi said. “They can get driver’s licenses, be witnesses against other violence they see in the community.”
That is when a woman challenged her, citing the violence she felt in her own community, violence perpetuated against her own son by an illegal immigrant.
The woman is Laura Wilkerson, an “Angel Mom” who recently started an organization called Enforce the Law, which advocates for enforcing America’s immigration laws, defunding sanctuary cities, and securing the border.
“You’re not only choosing to disavow a law,” the woman challenged, “but you are adding sanctuary to people who come there and disavow the law.”
“How do you reconcile in your head about allowing people to disavow the law?”
That’s when Wilkerson gave the second part of her question, which left Pelosi floored:
“The second part of my question is this — if you need to go home tonight and line up your babies as you say, and your grand babies, which one of them could you look in their eyes today, and tell them that they’re expendable? For another foreign person to have a nicer life? Which one would you look to say, you, my child, are expendable for some one else to come over here and not follow the law? And have a nicer life?”
