[Ed. – Law-abiding?]
At a press conference on Thursday on Capitol Hill in support of President Barack Obama’s executive order to provide protection from deportation for millions of illegal aliens, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said the Republicans have failed to act and Obama’s action will help “law-abiding families” enjoy the holiday season.
“In the face of the failure of Republican leadership in the House to follow the lead of the Republicans in the Senate to work in a bipartisan way – in a strong bipartisan way — the president of the United States has appropriately announced action – executive action – to help,” Pelosi said.
“Thanks to the president’s immigration accountability executive actions, millions of hard-working, law abiding families will be able to celebrate the holidays with renewed hope – hope in the future free from the fear of separation and deportation,” Pelosi said.
