Democrats shut down U.S. government in solidarity with illegal immigrants

Screenshot 2018-01-20 at 07.30.18.pngThe American public woke up to a sobering reality Saturday — the Democrats believe preserving illegal immigration is more important than the rest of us.

Lawmakers in both parties said they planned to spend the morning pushing plans for new stopgap measures lasting either weeks or days, continuing a tightrope process that had been going on for months, and finally broke down as midnight struck on Saturday.

House Democrats and Republicans planned separate meetings at 9 a.m. But the focus of the action remained in the Senate, where Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, the Kentucky Republican, was trying to convince Democrats that punishing the rest of America is not the way to address border security.

The Los Angeles Times reports the effects of the shutdown may not be felt immediately, given that many government employees would not normally come to work on a weekend.

McConnell, who said Republicans were ready to come together in a bipartisan way “to clean up this mess,” also read White House Press Secretary Sarah H. Sanders’ statement in which she said no immigration deal could be reached during the shutdown.

“We will not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands,” Sanders said. “This is the behavior of obstructionist losers, not legislators.”

  1. It’s VERY Telling to watch the Neo-Communist Party ..aka Democrats.. vastly favor illegal aliens over citizens.. Just run those ads all day starting in August through Nov for the 2018 mid-terms.. Then run a picture of Kate Stein and her murderer and show San Fran Nan and Cuck U Schummie.. They favored the killer over Kate..
    The Dem’s are desperate to get the DACCA Illegals voting.. 80% will vote welfare. Without them, they can no longer win elections. In fact, the Dem’s are close to becoming a Regional party and are broke and the Repubs are taking in record amounts of cash because of President Trump. NO Amnesty.. They need to be deported.
