A DACA recipient and advocacy director for the DREAMers protection group, United We Dream, named Greisa Martinez Rosas called White House chief of staff John Kelly a “bully” on CNN’s New Day Wednesday morning.


“I didn’t think he had a lack of love,” commented Rep. Luis Gutierrez on Kelly’s supposed remarks calling DACA recipients “too lazy” to sign up for DACA.

“And he demonstrated that because his boss says that they’re all criminals basically, and now he’s saying they’re all lazy. And so, God, it’s really a sad situation because he was supposed to be the adult in the room, he was supposed to be that guiding, mitigating force in the room, and he’s not,” Rep. Gutierrez continued.

“So Greisa, what did you hear when he said that?” asked Camerota.

“I heard a bully,” Rosas responded. “Someone that is picking on people who are afraid, that are scared, that are younger than him and smaller than him and using the White House as a bully pulpit, and to hurt people,” Rosas stated.
