Nancy Pelosi says a lot of stupid things, but this isn’t one of them.
Adding millions more Democrats to the voting rolls and millions more welfare recipients is the long game. Losing an already lost midterm election means losing a battle, not the war. It’s a worthwhile sacrifice play.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who spoke just before the vice president, said she “desperately” wants to pass new immigration laws this year and implied she would be willing to sacrifice more seats in the House to do it.
“I believe it is more important to pass comprehensive immigration reform to me and to my caucus than to win the election in November,” she said.
Pelosi added she would be willing to make any compromise necessary except on the inclusion of a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants — a key division between Democrats and Republicans.
Because at some point Voter ID laws might really kick in and a lot of Democrats will suddenly start losing elections unless the deck is stacked with enough legalized illegals beforehand.
