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.

Aug. 8, 2005 — "The Situation Room's" debut on CNN wherein the host first said: "I'm Wolf Blitzer and you're in The Situation Room, where news and information from around the world arrive in one place simultaneously!"

The state of play: When the pandemic took off in the U.S. in March, Blitzer started working 7 days a week for 60+ days, until he took a Sunday off. Then he continued 7 days a week until he took a few days off.
