While speaking to the Westchester-Playa Democratic Club in Los Angeles on Tuesday, Rep. Maxine Waters said that if President Trump is impeached, he can’t build the wall on the southern border to keep illegal immigrants out of the U.S.
“We are in church you all. We have got to do what God would have us do. And I believe we are the kind of people that would do that. So I’m hoping and praying the wall will never be built and if we impeach him we know it is not going to get built,” she said.
The Washington Free Beacon added:
In her speech, Waters discussed young undocumented immigrants often referred to as “dreamers,” who are protected from deportation by former President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) executive order.
Waters said that the United States is their country.
“These are people who have hope. These are people who have gone to school. These are young people who want careers. These are people who are contributing to our society,” Waters said. “And all of sudden, they are thought to be folks who don’t deserve to be here and would be sent back to places they’ve never been. People they don’t know. Systems they don’t understand. This is their country.”
Waters also brought up the inaccurate story being reported this week of the Trump administration deporting a dreamer.
Here’s video of her statement. The comment comes at about the 2:49 mark:
Keep in mind this is the same Maxine Waters who claimed she’s never called for Trump’s impeachment…
And she still hasn’t condemned calls and threats to murder the president…
