Along with undocumented Dreamers and other lawmakers, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was shouted down during a press event in San Francisco on Monday when a group of immigration rights advocates took over the room in protest of what they perceive as a show of political weakness by Democrats in Congress. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., and Jared Huffman, D-Calif., struggled to speak over chants of "all 11 million", a reference to the estimated total number of undocumented immigrants now in the country.

"Stop it. Just stop it now", Pelosi repeated over and over.

Pelosi is in her home city to call for legislation that would protect young immigrants brought to the USA illegally as children or by parents who overstayed visas.

Dianne Feinstein, also of San Francisco, was booed after she called for patience in dealing with Trump, saying she hoped he would change for the better. But the White House and Congressional Republicans say nothing is finalized.
