Pelosi and Reps. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., and Jared Huffman, D-Calif., appeared at an event in her home town of San Francisco to call on Congress to immediately pass the Dream Act, bipartisan legislation that would enshrine legal protections for hundreds of thousands of "dreamers" into law.

Pelosi was holding the conference with fellow California Democratic House members Barbara Lee and Jared Huffman to call for the passage of the DREAM Act, which would allow recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) and other undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as minors to remain in the country. No concrete details have yet been released about the deal-in-the-works, and the president himself has offered contradictory statements on whether an agreement has been reached at all. Former President Barack Obama hit record deportation numbers during his first term, although removal rates fell later in his presidency. "We all are fighting for comprehensive immigration reform", Pelosi said.

"Where was your resistance then?" the protesters said to Pelosi. "It is unconscionable that we would accept any deal that essentially trades our safety for that of the safety of our family members and neighbors", Itzel Guillen, who works with the Southern Border Communities Coalition, said in a statement.
