A Republican congressman who was confronted on the floor Friday night by House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi over his immigration comments told Fox News that the former speaker was “visibly shaken” during the encounter.”
Pelosi lashed out at Rep. Tom Marino, R-Pa., after he accused Democrats of neglecting the immigration issue when they controlled the White House and Congress in 2009 and 2010.
She could be seen walking over to him and pointing her finger at him — he later said Pelosi called him “insignificant.”
Speaking to Fox News on Monday, Marino offered additional details.
“She came up to me wagging her finger and saying that I was a liar, a liar, and I simply said, ‘No, I do my research — I have my facts straight, perhaps you should try that,'” he said.
Get the rest:
Nothing infuriates a Democrat like being reminded that people haven’t forgotten the things they’ve said and done, or in this case the thing they didn’t do.
Tom Marino was absolutely right. During the first two years that Obama was in office the Democrats controlled both houses but chose to focus on passing ObamaCare while ignoring immigration.
Obama himself has repeatedly been heckled by immigration activists for making promises he never kept. At the time he made excuses that he didn’t have the authority to act on his own.
Now all of a sudden the Democrats want to make immigration the top priority and if Congress won’t act the way Obama wants he threatens to issue Executive Edicts.
But don’t you dare point these facts out to Nancy Pelosi. It’s all a lie, it never happened.
