A group of activists, including multiple alleged illegal aliens, climbed the wall surrounding the house of Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the house and California’s representative, while noting that Pelosi has such a wall while being against a wall along the United States border with Mexico.
Video footage showed the group erecting a white tent with the word “immorality” spray-painted on it. Pelosi has referred to a wall along the southern border of the country as “an immorality.”
The footage was being streamed live on Infowars, the platform for Alex Jones.
The group said three illegal aliens from Guatemala and Mexico were among them. The men described as immigrants said they were happy to be on Pelosi’s property but spoke little throughout the video.
Laura Loomer is trending on Twitter.

“We need to set up sanctuary here because Nancy is a very, very rich Democrat, she believes that everyone is welcome here and that asylum is a human right,” said Laura Loomer, a firebrand who frequently confronts Democratic figures.
“They are setting up sanctuary,” another member of the group said.
It’s not clear where Loomer found the alleged illegal aliens.
A number of cities and states across the nation have declared so-called sanctuary status, meaning law enforcement officials there cannot work with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) or other federal agencies when illegal aliens allegedly commit crimes.
The system often leads to alleged criminals going free until their court dates as opposed to being held in jail on ICE detainers. ICE places holds on people here illegally after they allegedly commit crimes, and will deport them either when the charges are dropped or after a sentence is served.
“We are in Nothern California, this is one of Nancy Pelosi’s many mansions, what you see behind me is a group of people with Laura Loomer, they’re illegal immigrants, they jumped over this small wall, they are setting up sanctuary,” said another group leader. “For anyone whose seeking sanctuary, right here is a prime location, you can come right here, according to Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the Democrats.”
Later, the group hung the pictures of people murdered by illegal immigrants from the tent, which stood in Pelosi’s vast lawn.
Loomer led the group as they walked on Pelosi’s driveway to her house. They chanted “Nancy, Nancy,” as they went, saying they wanted to see if Pelosi locked her doors.

Loomer said after finding that the doors were locked that it was hypocritical of Pelosi to not have “open doors and borders” on her own property while the lawmaker engages in a standoff with President Donald Trump over funding for the border wall.
Police officers eventually arrived on the scene but had trouble processing the group as members refused to show identification, arguing that in California it’s not necessary to do so.
Two of the three men described as illegal immigrants who were with the group didn’t have identification so they were temporarily detained by the police. Officers eventually chose to give them a ticket and removed the whole group from the property.
Loomer was not arrested or given a ticket. She was let off with a warning for trespassing, for scaling the wall, and trying the doors on the house.
