1. SOUNDBITE: (English) Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House:
"What he is proposing is not the best way for us to secure our borders. And let me just make a clarity, not only was the president unpresidential, surprise, surprise, yesterday in his behavior. I think the meeting was a set-up so he could walk out. But I'll say just that. And as I said to him yesterday, these people cannot go to their fathers to cover their payments, their cost. Can you? Can any of you if this happened to you? If you can, good luck, that's wonderful for you. But that doesn't speak for most families in our country."
2. SOUNDBITE: (English) Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House:
"So in any case just to recap in terms of the soap opera that the president's petulance and obstinance is creating, we all support border security. We take an oath to protect and defend the American people and to defend the Constitution as we do so. And that's what this debate is about. There's a better way, a more effective way to protect, to secure our borders and that is what the debate should be about."
3. SOUNDBITE: (English) Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House:
"Our staff all weekend, Saturday, Sunday, had been engaged in these conversations. The president just keeps upping the ante. In fact, I said to him you're moving the goalposts so many times they're out of the stadium."
