House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is completely out of step with the American people. As the leader of the Democrat Party, she has proven time and time again that she only cares about defeating President Donald Trump.
Now, she just got busted trying to slip “poison pills” into a major bill that many did not know about.
As noted by Breitbart, the Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives have introduced a bill that will dramatically increase the number of Latin American refugees allowed into the United States.
However, buried deep in the bill is a section detailing how Democrats want to increase the number of refugees admitted each year to 100,000.
That is so significant because the Trump administration has dramatically reduced the number of refugees admitted to the U.S., especially those from Latin America.
Below is a chart from reporter Matthew La Corte, which details how the United States has not taken more than 1,688 Latin America refugees since Trump took office.

For context, the United States took in around 23,000 refugees from all over the world in 2018.
If the Democrats bill were to pass, it would allow 100,000 migrants from Latin America alone — that does not include from other nations.
The bill is called the Northern Triangle and Border Stabilization Act, the majority of migrants in this latest border surge come from that Triangle: El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala.
Here’s more from Breitbart:
The new bill would, according to the Post, increase services to minor migrants in federal custody, create more ways for Central Americans to get refugee status before coming to the U.S., expand “dramatically” the support for migrant families while their cases are being processed, and increase financial investment in Central America to address the alleged problems migrants are fleeing.
The Post notes that the 100,000 number is “separate and apart from the refugees we take in from elsewhere.”
The Democrats are playing the emotional card, as evidenced on the House floor last week when Rep. Tony Cardenas (D-CA) expressed the idea that all immigrants are “human beings” who deserve the same rights as citizens.
“The United States of America has been the gold standard and that is the argument that we are making today,” Cardenas said. “This is not a game.”
“We are fighting for the lives of human beings who should have the opportunity to be like everyone else on this floor to be allowed the freedom to be who they choose to be, who God made them to be in the greatest place on the planet,” Cardenas said. “And that’s why we are fighting today.”
This comes just days after Pelosi bashed Trump’s historic deal with Mexico because she claimed it “violated migrants rights.”
“President Trump undermined America’s preeminent leadership role in the world by recklessly threatening to impose tariffs on our close friend and neighbor to the south,” Pelosi said. “Threats and temper tantrums are no way to negotiate foreign policy.”
Trump also hasn’t minced his words lately about Pelosi and her obstructionist agenda.
During an interview last month on Fox News with host Laura Ingraham from Normandy, France, Trump called Pelosi an untalented, “nasty, vindictive, horrible person.”
Trump was also not pleased about Pelosi saying she wants to see the president in jail instead of impeached.
“I think she’s a disgrace. I actually don’t think she’s a talented person, I’ve tried to be nice to her because I would have liked to have gotten some deals done,” Trump said.
He added: “She’s incapable of doing deals, she’s a nasty, vindictive, horrible person, the Mueller report came out, it was a disaster for them.”

While Trump is trying to secure the border and limit potential dangerous refugees from entering the country, Democrats want to bring in over 100,000 per year.
That could put every single American at risk.
