Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) will not rest until lawbreakers are given a safe haven in America.
To Democrats, nothing constitutes breaking the law – and that includes coming into the country illegally.
Schumer now thinks Americans will be convinced to get onboard with amnesty for illegal immigrants once they see photos of deportations.
From BizPac Review:
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer believes that Republicans will join the Democratic Party to protect illegal immigrants if the media shows pictures of people getting deported.
“God forbid, but the pictures of people being deported will rally the nation,” Schumer said Wednesday on “The Rachel Maddow Show.” “And these more mainstream Republicans — admittedly, not a majority of the Republican Party, but enough — when they add them to Democrats, could pass the bill.”
Schumer also said that the Democrats “are in better shape than five days ago” before the party refused to extend funding for the government without protections for beneficiaries of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, forcing a government shutdown.

Watching Senate Democrats high-stepping and hopping around like a bunch of Mexican jumping beans in a hot skillet this week sure has been hilarious — if not entirely illuminating.
Led by Grande Sombrero Chuck Schumer himself, Democrats started their snake-bit tango by pledging their undying loyalty to the hundreds of thousands of so-called Dreamers, those treasured illegal aliens illegally brought into the country as children by their illegal parents.
Politicians pledging undying loyalty should have been the first clue that this was going to end badly for everyone involved. But that is how these people behave. They pledge undying loyalty to people that they just as quickly abandon.
Let’s start with the original pledge of undying loyalty. Now this is truly extraordinary.
Set aside the fact that there are apparently some real sob stories among these illegals brought into the country illegally as children by their illegal parents. Some, reportedly, only speak English and know nothing of the land of their birth. Sending them back would be cruel, we are told.
Indeed, it does sound cruel. What kind of parents would knowingly visit such cruelty upon their own children? And what kind of politicians would knowingly invite this kind of cruelty by making such false and lawless “open borders” promises?
The thing is, Trump was never going to deport recipients of DACA. Their illegal lawbreaking parents might be another story.
From Daily Wire:
The rumor of the day is that President Trump is about to cave on immigration.
That rumor has been taken up with alacrity by immigration hard-liners. Breitbart actually branded Trump “AMNESTY DON” in response to Trump’s comments to reporters on Thursday about illegal immigration.
It seems as though Trump is proposing the following deal:
-DREAMers – children who came to the United States as illegal immigrants but grew up here – may become citizens in 10-12 years, so long as they are of net benefit to the United States;
-Chain migration ends, except for parents, who may or may not receive citizenship;
-$25 billion for building the border wall;
-An end to the diversity visa lottery.
So, is this Trump “caving”? Only if you believed his grandiose promises about mass deportations during the election cycle. Most Trump voters didn’t even believe that. Which means that Trump isn’t caving. And the deal probably won’t get done anyway.
