Young immigrants shout down Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi in San Francisco

19 September, 2017, 00:28 | Author: Brenda Erickson

Protesters angrily confronted House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., on Monday about her emerging agreement with President Trump to provide legal protections to young undocumented immigrants.

The group of protesters took over the scheduled press conference where Pelosi, along with Reps. DACA has been controversial since former President Barack Obama implemented the policy because of questions regarding its constitutionality. At that point the demonstrators started shouting above her. VIDEO: TIMELINE: What led to Pres. Trump's decision to end DACAEventually Pelosi said if they weren't going to listen she was going to walk out and she did that with fellow Congresswoman Barbara Lee and Congressman Jared Huffman.

"We undocumented youth demand a clean bill..."

"Let me say this, because you've had your say, and it's attractive to our ears to hear you protecting your self dignity", Pelosi began.

"Democrats created an out-of-control deportation machine and handed it over to Trump", protesters shouted as they surrounded Pelosi while holding banners that read "fight 4 all immigrants" and "Democrats are deporters".

The lawsuit joins others filed over President Donald Trump's decision to end DACA, which has allowed almost 800,000 immigrants to obtain work permits and deportation protection since 2012.

Pelosi eventually left the news conference as protesters yelled, "You're a liar".

On the sidewalk outside the building, she told ABC7 News they are fighting for comprehensive reform but the first act will be to pass something along the lines of the DREAM Act.

Trump ordered the phasing out of the program but gave Congress six months to work out a deal to fix it.
