Minority leader Nancy Pelosi’s “Five Guys” joke about immigration reform was not to the taste of one of her Democratic colleagues.“The 'five white guys' I call them, you know,” the California congresswoman said Thursday, referring to a group of legislators working on a solution to the President’s end of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.“Are they going to open a hamburger stand next or what?”The five white guys in question are White House chief of staff John Kelly, Maryland Democrat Rep. Steny Hoyer, California House Republican Rep. Kevin McCarthy, Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois and Republican Sen. John Cornyn of Texas.Pelosi said that the Democratic caucus had great diversity, and that other bipartisan efforts were better suited to deal with finding a way to legislate a version of DACA to replace the executive order that Trump rescinded.Hoyer was less than pleased with his party leader’s jibe, however, and said that he found it “offensive.”
