Nancy Pelosi Joins Forces with Mexican Officials at the Border
Nancy Pelosi Joins Forces with Mexican Officials at the Border House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was at the southern border this weekend to share a hug with a Mexican official and affirm her opposition to President Donald Trump’s national emergency declaration. Pelosi was in Laredo, Texas, for a ceremony sponsored by the Washington’s Birthday Celebration Association of Laredo which annually brings together officials from Mexico and the U.S. to promote friendship. On Saturday, video showed Pelosi hugging a Mexican official during the International Bridge Ceremony. “I’ll remember this trip for years to come,” Pelosi wrote on Twitter. Saturday’s event came one day after Pelosi helped launch the House Democrats’ effort to fight Trump’s state of emergency declaration. The House will vote Tuesday on a measure that would block the declaration.
