Laura Loomer on Pelosi estate Jan2019Conservative spokesman Gary Bauer says a recent demonstration in California highlights the hypocrisy of the left's position on border walls.

On Monday, conservative activist Laura Loomer (pictured) hopped over the fence surrounding the California estate of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to build a "caravan sanctuary" for people she claimed were illegal immigrants. Loomer stated Pelosi is "a very rich Democrat, and she believes that everyone is welcome here, and sanctuary is a human right." (Related article)

Then the police showed up and told her she and her companions were trespassing on private property and requested they provide identification.

Loomer: "[California Governor] Gavin Newsome said we don't need driver's licenses because it's like a form of profiling."

Police: "You're on private property, so you're trespassing."

Loomer (et al.): "I'm really confused. Nancy said that everyone was welcome here. Nancy Pelosi said asylum is a human right, but now they're saying I'm trespassing – and Nancy said everyone is welcome here. What's private property? Is that kind of like crossing over the border? What happens if you cross over the border? Is that trespassing?"

Gary Bauer of American Values boils it down: "The demonstrators were highlighting the hypocrisy of the left's position on things like security and walls and so forth."

According to Bauer, Pelosi and Senator Chuck Schumer, the Senate minority leader, showed some more hypocrisy when some mothers whose children were killed by illegal immigrants showed up on Capitol Hill.

Bauer, Gary (American Values)"And in both cases," Bauer explains, "Pelosi and Schumer hid behind the walls of their offices – with the security that the American taxpayer provides for those offices – and would not meet with these mothers who have been permanently separated from their children because of deadly violence by illegal immigrants."

According to The Washington Times, Loomer and her companions weren't arrested, but were escorted from the property with a warning for trespassing and for trying the doors of Pelosi's house to see if they were locked.
