There is criticism from both sides: the Republicans and the base of the Democratic Party, that the Senate Democrats chose the wrong hill to faint on in regards to shutting down the US Government in favor of illegal immigrants.
They didn’t die on the hill because they didn’t keep it going longer than three days. They just did this dramatic act, which failed to accomplish their purposes and gave President Trump another way to drive home that the American people support President Trump’s immigration policy.
That is what powered him into the White House in the first place. This is a great opportunity for him to show how this issue of immigration is a way that the Democrats elevate illegal immigrants over the concerns of American citizens.
I joined Liz Wheeler on her show Tipping Point on OAN to discuss.
I’m so glad Liz highlighted both of these quotes by Senator Schumer and former President Obama:
Liz Wheeler: The Democrats have shifted so radically just in the past few years on their stances on immigration that even the Left is seeing some of the some of the hypocrisy.
Here is a video clip of President Obama back in 2006 talking about immigration:
The American people are a welcoming and generous people. But those who enter our country illegally and those who employ them disrespect the rule of law. Because we live in an age where terrorists are challenging our borders, we cannot allow people to pour into the US undetected undocumented and unchecked. —President Obama
Here’s a video clip of Senator Chuck Schumer in 2009:
People who enter the United States without our permission are illegal aliens and illegal aliens should not be treated the same as people who entered the US legally.—Senator Schumer
