"We undocumented youth will not be a bargaining chip for Trump". Before activists interrupted her, Pelosi said any deal entered into by the Democrats should include an avenue for immigrants brought to the USA before turning 16 to stay permanently, ideally through a path to citizenship. "And now you tell us, you have the audacity, to tell us you have been fighting deportation?" one protester yelled. They repeatedly called the minority leader a "liar".

"You've had your say, and it's lovely", Pelosi told the demonstrators at one point.

"You don't know what you're taking about", a visibly upset Pelosi responded.

As others have also stated, the group of protesters rejected the idea that Pelosi, along with Senate Minority Chuck Schumer (D-NY), should capitulate or make a deal with President Donald Trump over the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. But the White House and Congressional Republicans say nothing is finalized.

Pelosi, and Reps. Barbara Lese and Jared Huffman were expected to call for the immediate passage of the DREAM Act at Monday's news conference.

"What I interpret from what you are saying that you do not want us to proceed with the DREAM Act because it is not comprehensive immigration reform". She says it does not matter whether or not she and Trump like each other.

Meanwhile, a group of six DACA recipients took legal action against Trump in a San Francisco federal court over his decision to end the program, arguing that he "was motivated by unconstitutional bias against Mexicans and Latinos" in a move to upend the lives of 800,000 immigrant youths and their families.

The lawsuit joins others filed over President Donald Trump's decision to end DACA, which has allowed almost 800,000 immigrants to obtain work permits and deportation protection since 2012.
