Pelosi on Illegals: ‘We Cannot Prohibit a Path to Citizenship’

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said today that the United States, as a country, “cannot prohibit a pathway to citizenship” for illegal aliens.

“As a country, we cannot, let me say, we cannot prohibit a path to citizenship,” Pelosi said Tuesday at the Peter G. Peterson Foundation annual economic summit in Washington, D.C.

“I don’t think we as a country want to be a country that says, ‘You can do our work, but you can’t have the rights of a citizen in our country,’” said Pelosi. “It’s more about who we are as a nation.”

Pelosi joined other politicians, including New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Sens. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) and Rob Portman (R-Ohio) to discuss the economy and other topics, including immigration reform.
