“Ms. Pelosi has said she will not vote for the measure. She was protesting its lack of protection for the Dreamers, young immigrants who were brought to the United States illegally as children and have been shielded from deportation by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, an Obama-era initiative that President Trump has suspended.”

Nancy Pelosi should be removed from all positions of leadership in the Democratic party, for endangering the chances of the Democrats, Independents and environmentalists of winning back the house or the senate.
Our planet depends on smarter, more strategic leadership.
Then, in her new found spare time, she might have time to read David Leonhardt, or Brett Stevens, and many others, including yours truly. Stevens writes in large brush strokes, that focusing on DACA and dreamers, while ignoring the needs of anxioius, middle class white Americans, is surely not the way to win in the next election. Leonhardt breaks it down, with facts, poling data, and figures. It is hard to believe that anyone who read his two colums on this, could continue to loudly fight for DACA, when it turns off the very people we need to bring back to the democratic fold: the millions of voters who voted for Obama before, but then Trump in the last election. I’m am not against the DACA reforms, but heaven help us, if the Democrats are so dumb as to make it the big issue that it isn’t for so many struggling middle class Americans, who vote in extremely high numbers. 69% of the voting public are white people, many of who are stressed out, according to Leonhard’s reporting and data.
