House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said racism is part of why some Republicans’ have blocked Democrats’ efforts to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill.
“I think race has something to do with them not bringing up the immigration bill. I’ve heard them say to the Irish, ‘If it was just you, it would be easy,’” Pelosi said, when a reporter asked if race was a factor in Republicans stances and how they treat the president and others.
Yesterday, Attorney General Holder hinted that he and the president are treated worse because of the color of their skin.
“I think generally speaking, they are disrespectful of the representatives of the president’s administration,” Pelosi said, adding that she didn’t “want to go to that place” about whether the GOP were disrespectful to the president.
