'Angel Mom' Blasts Pelosi for Resistance to Trump's Border Proposal: 'She's Out of Touch With Reality'
Pelosi, D-Calif., tweeted her disdain with Trump's proposal shortly after the president's announcement, during which he offered Democrats a three-year protections extension for 700,000 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients.
What is original in the President’s proposal is not good. What is good in the proposal is not original. Democrats will vote next week to add additional border security funding for ports of entry, advanced technology for scanning vehicles for drugs & immigration judges.

Mary Ann Mendoza, whose police officer son was killed in 2014 by an illegal immigrant with a criminal record who was drunken driving, said on Fox & Friends that there's almost "nothing more to say" when it comes to the House speaker.
"Her time's up," Mendoza said. "[Pelosi] needs to step down because she's out of touch with reality, and really she's losing a lot of respect from women in our country."
Mendoza said that Pelosi has refused to meet with her and other parents whose lives have been affected by illegal immigration.
Nancy Pelosi and some of the Democrats turned down my offer yesterday before I even got up to speak. They don’t see crime & drugs, they only see 2020 - which they are not going to win. Best economy! They should do the right thing for the Country & allow people to go back to work.

She also said that there needs to be some type of DACA reform, but that conservatives should understand the give-and-take in negotiations.
