Conservative provocateur Laura Loomer’s latest stunt included bringing a trio of self-described illegal immigrants to set up a “sanctuary” on House Speaker Nancy’s Pelosi’s lawn in California.

Ms. Loomer live-streamed the stunt on Periscope on Monday as a protest against the Democratic Party’s opposition to President Trump’s proposed southern border wall and Mrs. Pelosi’s characterization of the wall as “immoral.”

Ms. Loomer and her “amigos” reportedly from Mexico and Guatemala are seen in the video jumping over a small wall at Mrs. Pelosi’s Napa home and setting up a white tent on the lawn painted with the word “immorality.”

“Nancy is a very rich Democrat, and she believes that everyone is welcome here, and sanctuary is a human right,” Ms. Loomer said in the video.

The Daily Beast reporter Will Sommer, who was at the scene, tweeted that police eventually showed up and demanded that Ms. Loomer and the others provide identification, which they refused.

“[Calif. Gov.] Gavin Newsom said we don’t need IDs,” Ms. Loomer reportedly told the police.

The group was then kicked off Mrs. Pelosi’s lawn.

“I’m being deported!” Ms. Loomer yelled in the video.

No arrests were made, and Ms. Loomer walked off with a warning for trespassing and for trying the doors of Mrs. Pelosi’s house to see if they were locked, Mr. Sommer reported.

Mrs. Pelosi has not yet commented on the incident.

Ms. Loomer, a Jewish conservative, made headlines in November after she was banned from Twitter for criticizing Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar and then handcuffed herself to the Twitter headquarters in New York City in a demand to be reinstated.

Right-wing activist Laura Loomer, last seen chaining herself to Twitter HQ, has jumped the fence at Nancy Pelosi’s Napa home and set up a tent protesting immigration. Now she’s chanting “Nancy, Nancy!”

Now Laura Loomer is back and saying she tried to open the doors to Pelosi’s house, but they were locked. This seems like an unwise thing to be admitting!

For lack of anything better to do, Laura Loomer is now carrying her tent back and forth on Nancy Pelosi’s lawn

Loomer has claimed the guys in yellow jackets she brought with her are undocumented immigrants. It’s not clear whether that’s true, but they are getting a lot of attention from the police, appear unable to give ID. One cop says Loomer has really put the guys in a tough spot.
