Ronna McDaniel, who is running for a third term as US Senator, denounced Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for her role in the attempt by President Donald Trump to have the US Supreme Court uphold his unprecedented immigration order, which will almost certainly have devastating effects on the working and middle classes of the nation.

This is not surprising, since the Obama administration is dominated by politicians who have been deeply anti-working class and have spent most of their political careers on the right.

Pell, who was raised by an immigrant mother and was a community organizer in Oakland, Calif., also said that “the
