Laura Loomer Nancy Pelosi Home Video Reportedly Used 'Undocumented Immigrants' to Stage Protest

Right-wing activist Laura Loomer filmed herself knocking on Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s home with three “undocumented” men, who she purportedly tricked into trespassing onto the Speaker the House's Napa Valley, California, home.

Online blogger and conspiracy theorist Jacob Wohl tweeted a video of Loomer and the three men knocking and trying to open Pelosi’s door. “WATCH: Laura Loomer proves that Nancy Pelosi’s mansion isn’t a sanctuary for illegal aliens,” Wohl wrote.

The video was reportedly shot on Monday when Loomer hopped the fence at Pelosi’s estate in Napa Valley. Loomer then tricked three men described as undocumented immigrants into joining her, leading to a confrontation with police.

Loomer told The Daily Beast that she met the men at a Home Depot parking lot and got them to stage a protest at Pelosi’s home. It was unclear whether the men knew what they were doing was a crime, the outlet reported.

In the video shared by Wohl, Loomer can be heard leading the men in a chant of “Nancy! Nancy!” while traditional mariachi music plays in the background. When they find Pelosi’s doors locked, Loomer has the men repeat “You’re killing us Nancy!”

The three men required a Spanish translator when police officers arrived on the scene. Officers appeared to ignore Loomer and instead focused on the three men, footage of the incident showed.

One sheriff’s deputy allegedly told Loomer that she had placed the men in a difficult situation when she set them up to have a confrontation with police, The Daily Beast reported.

The Napa County Sheriff’s Office later decided to let the men go. A Pelosi representative declined to press charges and the men were released without fines. This reportedly annoyed Loomer’s group, with one of her friends shouting, “Catch and release," which can be heard in videos of the incident.

This has not been Loomer’s first publicity stunt. In November, Loomer was booted off Twitter after criticizing U.S. Representative Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, one of the first Muslim women to be elected to Congress.

In Loomer’s tweet, she claimed “Ilhan is anti Jewish” and made comments against Islam.

After being kicked off the social media network, Loomer staged a protest at Twitter headquarters in Manhattan. She handcuffed herself to the building and told employees they worked for an “evil” company.

“I am not going to stand by as people like Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg [try to] silence the voices of millions of conservatives,” she reportedly said, according to NBC News.

In 2017, she was banned from both hide-sharing services Uber and Lyft after tweeting the need for someone to create “a non Islamic form of Uber or Lyft because I never want to support another Islamic immigrant driver.”
