House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Saturday the House of Representatives would hold the Trump Administration “accountable for its dangerous anti-immigrant, anti-refugee agenda.”

Pelosi issued a statement to recognize World Refugee Day, using it to blast the president.

“This year’s UNHCR [UN Refugee Agency] report shows the heartbreaking reality of the ongoing refugee crisis, with nearly 80 million people, one percent of the global population, forcibly displaced, 40 percent of whom are innocent children,” Pelosi said.

“Shamefully, despite this growing crisis, the Trump Administration has significantly cut the number of refugees admitted to the United States, abandoning our international obligations and our history as a beacon of hope and opportunity for people around the world,” she added.

“This outrageous policy is made even worse by the administration’s deliberately cruel and inhumane treatment of asylum seekers at our southern border, including its barbaric family separation policy and the denial of basic human rights to vulnerable men, women, and children,” she said.

“These disgraceful actions undermine our bedrock values and have no place in our country,” Pelosi continued.

“To honor all those who come to our country to find peace and to seek their American Dream, House Democrats will continue to demand the Senate vote on the House-passed H.R. 6, the American Dream and Promise Act, to protect TPS and DED recipients and provide a pathway to citizenship,” she said.

“We will hold the administration accountable for its dangerous anti-immigrant, anti-refugee agenda as we work to build a brighter and more prosperous future for all,” she said.

Pelosi's remarks come days after the Supreme Court blocked the Trump's bid to terminate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

Pelosi last month said the next round of coronavirus relief would include a $1,200 check for every illegal alien in the country.

The House Speaker also held up much-needed aid for American citizens.

The news comes days after the Supreme Court blocked the Trump's bid to terminate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program for illegal aliens living in America.

Chief Justice John Roberts joined the court’s four Democratic-appointed justices to rule with a 5-4 majority.

The decision was announced just over eight years former President Barack Obama launched the program.

At the time, Obama said it would be a “temporary” program.

But Trump vowed on Friday that his administration would 'shortly' restart the regulatory process to end Barack Obama’s “DACA” amnesty for illegal aliens.
