Pelosi's statement on Trump's deportation threat: 'Utter malice and bigotry'

2 min read

She’s not mincing words, folks. Nor should she.

The statement:

“The President’s new threat of a mass deportation dragnet is an act of utter malice and bigotry, designed solely to inject fear in our communities. This plan revives the horror of the President’s family separation policy, inflicting its inhumanity on countless hard-working families across America.

“Since Day One, the Administration’s failed policies – from family separation, to child incarceration, to gutting asylum protections – have created senseless tragedy and heartbreak both at the border and throughout our country, and have turned America’s back on a decades-long, bipartisan understanding of the value of immigrants to our nation.

“The President must walk away from these cruel, ineffective and discriminatory policies, and work with Democrats to support smart, effective immigration reform that honors our values and keeps families together and safe. The President must also stop sabotaging good-faith, constructive and bipartisan efforts in Congress to address the root causes of the situation by blocking funding for humanitarian efforts in Central America.”

Left unsaid is that Trump’s latest threat is just cruelty for cruelty’s sake — or at the very least it’s a cynical clarion call to his base, which eats this stuff up like the bottomless fries at Old Country Buffet.

He wants to look “tough,” but he punted that chance away with his bone-spur-beleaguered feet decades ago.

And toughness without compassion is simply, as Speaker Pelosi notes, “utter malice.”

Then again, that’s what this abomination of a human being is and always has been — malicious.
