President Donald Trump has repeatedly claimed that the Democrats are impeding his efforts to reform immigration and address the crisis at the southern border.

Republican lawmakers such as Sen. Ted Cruz, Rep. Dan Crenshaw and Rep. Matt Gaetz have joined the president in criticizing their political opponents’ disingenuous exploitation of the issues.

And they are telling the truth.

A recent report from National Review quoted Nancy Pelosi giving advice to illegal immigrants on how to avoid arrest and deportation.

“An ICE deportation warrant is not the same as a search warrant,” Pelosi said at a press conference. “If that is the only document ICE brings to a home raid, agents do not have the legal right to enter a home. If ICE agents don’t have a warrant signed by a judge, a person may refuse to open the door and let them in,” Pelosi continued.

If that wasn’t bad enough, Pelosi went on, behind closed doors, to explain her “know your rights” campaign for illegal immigrants.

If the fact that the Speaker of the House is advising illegal immigrants on how to avoid apprehension from Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers doesn’t sit well with you, you aren’t the only one.

Former Florida Rep. and retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel Allen West responded with the serious charge that Pelosi’s actions bordered on treason.

“Unless I am grossly mistaken, Ms. Pelosi just violated her oath of office and has committed a high crime and misdemeanor,” West tweeted.

“High crimes and misdemeanors” is a classification of offense for which Art. II, Sec. 4 of U.S. Constitution provides grounds for impeachment.

And West may be right.

According to Jon Roland of the Constitution Society, high crimes refer “to those punishable offenses that only apply to high persons, that is, to public officials, those who, because of their official status, are under special obligations that ordinary persons are not under, and which could not be meaningfully applied or justly punished if committed by ordinary persons.”

Put another way, “a high crime is an affront to the state, to the people, the body politic,” as Jeffrey A. Engel, director of the Southern Methodist University Center for Presidential History, says.

West’s accusation could be true if Congress found Pelosi’s statements and actions constituted “violations of public trust.”

Congressional action against Pelosi is extremely unlikely, but her words and conduct reveal how far the Democrats are willing to go to resist immigration reform.

While one can stand for both American sovereignty and reasonable reform for immigration policy, you can’t be pro-America and champion complete disregard for the rule of law all while thwarting enforcement of current immigration standards.

    “Congressional action against Pelosi is extremely unlikely.” Why? The only reason these traitorous bastards keep doing shit like this is because they’re allowed to get away with it. Prosecute the mother fuckers to the fullest extent of the law and make an example of them and put a stop to this shit once and for all!

    They should be arrested and convicted under U.S. Code 1324 +1325 violations.

    Piglosi could never be charged with that, she’s a demonrat. Plus the entire corrupt party would cover for her. So nothing will ever come of this.Just like the Clintons, getting away with literally anything & everything.

    The actions demonstrate how far the Democrats will go to pander to a constituency to obtain votes. In this case, they are committing acts that are contrary to law. Unfortunately, there appears to be no means for citizens to remove members of Congress from their position for committing illegal actions or breaches of duty. This was an oversight by the founding fathers.

      Sure was….she can be arrested and prosecuted. The senate will do their part. It probably will fail, but it will be on her record and Should prevent her from being able to run again….30 years is way to long anyway.

      She can be impeached/expelled just as she tried to do all the time to Trump, they are not immune from removal unlike certain other positions like mayoral.

      If a federal official commits a crime or otherwise acts improperly, the House of Representatives may impeach—formally charge—that official. If the official subsequently is convicted in a Senate impeachment trial, he is removed from office.

    Most of the Democratic party needs impeached or imprisoned for their treasonous actions.

    Draining the swamp is a tough job. The slimy creatures are desperate and getting more so by the day. If they don’t get illegal votes, they will never win 2020. Thus the fight against the census question of citizenship and the fight against deporting their voting base.

    I forgot to add this to my last comment. Put a bag over her head, so when she gets to the jail she won’t scare the rest of the inmates. They’ll think it’s Halloween if they she her face.Trick or treat.

    Start putting all these traitors behind bars. Better yet, send them to the countries they are defending. Take their titles,all pay(including retirement),all benefits and their right to vote.We the people are tired of hearing this but seeing no ACTION.If I committed a crime, I’d be behind bars before I could blink.WE WANT JUSTICE DONE NOW!!!!
