US House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi of California holds a press conference on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, December 17, 2015. US lawmakers have announced the creation of a group to promote US interests as newly restored US-Cuba relations evolve. Twelve lawmakers from both parties did so in a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi. The Cuba Working Group in the House of Representatives is to be formally created on December 17, 2015. It will push to "advance policy proposals that are in our national interest in an era in which the US-Cuba relationship is rapidly being reshaped," the letter said. Thursday marks the one year anniversary of the announcement by the US and Cuba that they would restore ties severed during the Cold War.

A group of angry illegal immigrants disrupted House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s press conference on Monday and chanted that Democrats are a “deportation machine” that must help push for legal protections for 11 million people who are now living illegally in the country.

The Democratic lawmaker was slated to speak about the Dream Act, which would grant protections and provide a path to U.S. citizenship for the nearly 800,000 people who benefit from President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

But the protesters  came to the event to call for every illegal immigrant be protected by the government, not just DACA recipients. Read more at The Washington Examiner.
