Democrats will do anything in order to not work with Republicans and the American public are the ones paying for it. Hundreds of Thousands of government employees could be working without pay or layed off of work completely. All this in exchange for securing legal protection for 800,000 immigrants are here illegally.
Congress has three days to come together on a deal that would keep the federal government funded though October. If they don’t come to an agreement by Jan 19th, all “non-essential” government employees and active U.S. Military personnel, including those positioned overseas, will be forced to work without pay. All funding for federal museums or parks would be cut off as well.
Democrats are apparently happy with all this happening, as long as they can secure benefits for illegal immigrants. Would you trade hundreds of thousands of American jobs, and security for those families, for increased rights for immigrants who are here illegally?
Despite the fact that the deadline clicks closer and closer, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi have refused to move from their position to keep the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in existence. The Democrats are under the impression that they have the upper hand in terms of this power struggle, but in reality it just reflects poorly on their party.
“The fact remains the only way to guarantee the legal status for DREAMers is to pass DACA protections into law and do it now,” Schumer said Wednesday. “For that reason, a resolution to the DACA issue must be part of a global deal on the budget.”
Democrats are willing to throw everything out the window to protect illegal immigrants. Something tells me they are going to cave, because if they don’t, this will go down in history as one of the most detrimental decisions ever made by an American political party.
