On Tuesday, Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) rejected a legislative proposal backed by Republican leaders to keep immigrant families together at the border proving that Democrats don’t care about the children. Instead of actually fixing the problem, Democrats argued that President Trump could fix the problem more easily with a flick of his pen.
Schumer said: “There are so many obstacles to legislation and when the president can do it with his own pen, it makes no sense. The legislation is not the way to go here when it’s so easy for the president to sign it.”
Asked if that meant Democrats would not support a bill backed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to keep immigrant families together while seeking asylum on the U.S. border, Schumer said they want to keep the focus on Trump.
“Again, the president can change it with his pen,” he said, warning that Republicans would likely try to add poison-pill provisions to any immigration bill that came to the floor.
“Unacceptable additions have bogged down every piece of legislation we’ve done,” he said.
Well, if this isn’t proof that Dems only want an ISSUE, and have no interest in SOLVING that issue, I don’t know what is. Trump has been right about the Democrats. They want anything to distract from sedition and treason coming out in the FBI hearings. They are actually using this “immigration fake-news” to divert attention from the most egregious political crime ever perpetrated on the American people and their duly elected President.
UPDATE: On Wednesday, President Trump has signed an executive order to allow children to stay with parents caught crossing the border illegally “while ensuring we have a powerful border.” The measure would allow children to stay in detention with parents for an extended period of time.
But, no matter what President Trump dows, the Left will not be satisfied. They will just find something else to whine about. They begged for it for the past few days. He tried to get Congress to do it, they refused but kept pointing the finger. So he does the right thing and signs an executive order. Now within minutes, it’s being challenged by the same people who forced him to sign it.
Now we will find out it really isn’t about the kids. What they want is a permanent crisis so they can rail against it.
