Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer came to the White House on Wednesday, purportedly to hear Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen expound on the security problems swamping our southern border. But the moment Nielsen began briefing congressional leaders on the crisis, Schumer made it clear that he wasn’t interested in hearing it. Proving once and for all that this is merely a political game on the part of the Democrats, he continually interrupted Nielsen’s briefing with his kooky plans to end the government shutdown with bills that do not fund what we really need at the border: The Wall.
“Once the secretary started,” said House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, “Schumer interrupted her and didn’t want to hear it.”
Of course he didn’t. Because it becomes a lot tougher to get up on your high horse and proclaim Trump’s wall a political stunt when you sit there and listen to the immigration crisis our Border Patrol is dealing with at the Mexican border. It is a great deal harder to lie to the American people when you sit through a meeting filled with truth. Better to put your fingers in your ears, sing “lalalala,” and pretend that any attempt to secure the border is a racist, xenophobic campaign ploy.
From The Daily Caller:
The White House official told TheDC that both Pelosi and Schumer refused to hear out Nielsen’s briefing and instead advocated for two solutions to end the government shutdown. Neither of the Democratic options would provide the additional funding for border security requested by The White House.
“Democrats in the room either don’t care that there is a humanitarian crisis on the border or just prefer ignorance. It was incredibly disheartening that they don’t want to know the facts when making policy,” DHS Spokeswoman Katie Waldman said in a statement to TheDC.
The only “facts” the Democrats care about are the ones propagated by the mainstream media – Trump is personally killing migrant children at the border, he’s unleashing deadly tear gas on innocent refugees, and he’s making up caravans to sway his racist base into voting for Republicans. Oh, and in the meantime, he’s causing misery to thousands of government workers who won’t get a paycheck until he stops throwing a temper tantrum over his stupid little wall.
That’s the story millions of Americans are getting from a media that has been wholly and completely taken over by the Democrats. And until the country turns – viciously – against the Democrats for failing to do what’s right for our national security, they’re going to keep playing this game. They don’t care how many people get hurt, and they certainly don’t care how many illegal immigrants get into America. Hell, it’s the more the merrier, as far as they’re concerned.
All we can say is: Please, Mr. President, do NOT give in to these crooks. Not until you get your wall.
