Pelosi Says GOP Wants To Put Dreamers In Camps… Like Japanese Americans Were Interned By FDR
Dear Nancy, they are to be deported out of our country… Putting them in “internment camps” would imply we will take care of them. Nope! We will send them back to their country.

Pelosi gave the speech before reporters in front of the Capitol Tuesday.

“[I]t’s about the internment of the Japanese American patriots in our country who were interned into camps during World War 2 while their family members were fighting for freedom for America and for the world in World War II, they were in camps,” she said.
“And they came for me,” she said, repeating the name of the exhibit, “and now they’re coming for the DREAMers.”
“This is something,” she added, “we owe these DREAMers for their patriotism, for their courage, their optimism to come forward. But it’s about America too. The fight is for who we are as a country too. They are the manifestation of that fight right now. But we cannot let them come for them.”
