Nancy Pelosi inadvertently tells the truth about why she is pushing for amnesty for illegals

It hasn’t exactly been a well-guarded secret that the Left’s long-term plan is to allow as many Hispanic immigrants into the country as possible because of their marked propensity for voting Democrat. In the 2016 election, as a case in point, 65% of Latinos voted for Hillary Clinton, while 29% voted for Donald Trump — and the latter number was surprising, say analysts who predicted a much greater turnout for Clinton.

Despite the fact that the number of Latino voters has grown by 37% over the last two decades, the trend toward “browning the vote” hasn’t been fast enough for Democrats, who have thus become champions of throwing the borders open to illegal aliens.

Although this crusade has been taking place in plain view, Democrats have long made a point of keeping mum about their plan. That was until Wednesday when minority House leader Nancy Pelosi spilled the beans at a news conference. Here she is, speaking about the midterms. A transcript follows:

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

But everything is about time, and we want to shorten the distance as your question indicated between what we think is inevitable for America. They think it is inconceivable, but we believe that we can get this done. We are not going to be able to get it done under the republican leadership in Congress. We believe that we will have leverage when we win in November.

And why is that important? Because it gives leverage to every family, to every mom who courageously brought her child across the desert to escape — to escape death, rape, gang violence, and the rest. Because it gives hope, because of the leverage it gives to families who may have followed dad home for a family funeral and now can’t come back into the country. [Emphasis added]

This is shades of Barack Obama whispering to then-Russian President Dmitri Medvedev in 2012, “This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.” But unlike Obama, who wasn’t aware his words were being picked up by a hot mic, Pelosi said exactly what she meant.
