Pelosi shouted down by immigration activists

Immigration activists interrupted House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi during a press conference in San Francisco, which she held with DREAMers to reaffirm her support for pro-DACA legislation.

"You have the audacity to tell us you have been fighting deportation ... You are a liar," protestors shouted. Drowned out by protestors, Pelosi responded, "Yes I have ... You don't know what you're talking about."

The context: The activists said they protested Pelosi because she and other Democrats are negotiating with Trump and congressional Republicans about a legislative replacement for DACA, the Obama-era order that shielded about 800,000 illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children from deportation, and allowed them to apply for work permits.

Worth noting: Pelosi and Chuck Schumer raised DACA with Trump at a White House meeting earlier this month, and have said replacing it will be a top priority in the coming weeks and months.

The Trump White House and its allies, over the past 18 months, assembled detailed lists of disloyal government officials to oust — and trusted pro-Trump people to replace them — according to more than a dozen sources familiar with the effort who spoke to Axios.

Driving the news: By the time President Trump instructed his 29-year-old former body man and new head of presidential personnel to rid his government of anti-Trump officials, he'd gathered reams of material to support his suspicions.
