House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said a bipartisan immigration bill with Republicans would be “a compromise with the devil” in a press conference Friday.


When asked if she had talked with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan about coming together over a bipartisan immigration bill, Pelosi said, “They have never been interested.”

“Sometimes you all repeat it — that it’s a compromise,” Pelosi added, “but it’s not a compromise.”

She continued, “It may be a compromise with the devil, but it’s not a compromise with the Democrats in terms of what they have in their bill.”

“Their bills are anti-family, perpetuate child detention, undermine existing protections [and] cut off many people who have been waiting lawfully to enter the country,” Pelosi said of Republican bills.

Rep. Bob Goodlatte’s immigration bill was declined Thursday, which complied with many of the issues President Trump was willing to sign into law if an immigration bill was brought to his desk. (RELATED: Goodlatte Immigration Bill Fails In The House)
