Nancy Pelosi held a town hall event on CNN to try and present a Democratic alternative to Donald Trump.
At the event, a grieving mother whose son was murdered by an illegal immigrant asked Pelosi how she could support sanctuary cities.
Her answer left many Americans wondering just what planet she was on.
Laura Wilkerson’s son was captured by an illegal immigrant, beaten, tortured, and lit on fire.
She questioned Nancy Pelosi how she could support illegal immigration and back sanctuary cities when those policies lead to the death of innocent Americans.
Wilkerson also demanded Pelosi to answer which one of her grandchildren she’d be willing to consider as “expendable” just so illegal immigrants can continue to flout our laws and remain in America.
Pelosi was visibly shaken when confronted with the real world consequences of her open borders policies.
She stumbled through her answer, and then responded with a massive lie, saying that sanctuary cities house people who are not disobeying the law.
Lifezette reports on the exchange:
“In 2010, one of the illegals slaughtered my son,” the woman continued, her voice hoarse and cracking with grief. “He tortured him, he beat him, he tied him up like an animal. And he set him on fire. And I am not a one story mother. This happens every day. Because there are no laws enforcing the border,” the woman said.
“We have to start giving American families first. This is not — bad to not put Americans first. We have family that fought and died for this country. How do you reconcile in your head about allowing people to disavow the law?” she asked.
Pelosi was visibly stunned, if not shamed, by what the woman said next. “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 grandbabies, which one of them could you look in their eyes today, and tell them that they’re expendable? For another foreign person to have an a nicer life? Which one would you look to say, ‘You, my child, are expendable for someone else to come over here and not follow the law and have a nicer life’?” the woman asked.
Pelosi’s response was to insist that sanctuary cities do not protect criminals like the one who killed the woman’s son. “I do want to say to you that in our sanctuary cities that our people are not disobeying the law. These are law-abiding citizens [sic], it enables them to be there without being reported to ICE in case of another crime that they might bear witness to,” Pelosi insisted.

Pelosi’s false claim that sanctuary cities are a place where law abiding citizens seek refuge is jaw-dropping in its stupidity.
First off, every illegal immigrant is breaking the law just by the nature of their presence in America.
Second, her own San Francisco provided one of the most famous examples of the dangers sanctuary cities pose to America citizens.
In 2015, Kate Steinle was viciously murdered when she was gunned down by an illegal immigrant who had previously been deported five times.
ICE had a detainer for the illegal immigrant, but San Francisco ignored the order and set him free.
It’s clear Nancy Pelosi has no choice but to employ alternative facts in order to claim sanctuary cities aren’t home to dangerous criminals.
