The #SchumerShutdown is in full swing. Last night, Chuck Schumer and the Democrats shut down the Federal government because Congress wouldn't give amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.
President Trump tweeted this morning that this was a nice present for the anniversary of his inauguration, given the fact that the majority of Americans disagree with forcing military members to go without pay in order to get amnesty for illegals.
But the White House issued a more important statement last night, accusing the Democrats of putting "politics above our national security, military families, vulnerable children, and our country's ability to serve all Americans" and promised that the President would "not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage."
The President issued this statement to make sure the GOP understood that surrender was unacceptable. Only once Democrats start paying our armed forces and first responders will Trump consider re-opening immigration negotiations.
But there are already Republicans who are itching to just surrender to the Democrats in order to re-open the Federal government. Lindsey Graham, Jeff Flake, and even John McCain are demanding that Congress pass the immigration surrender bill to give the Democrats what they want. On the house side, Paul Ryan is beginning to cave to the RINOs and is considering attaching the amnesty amendment to the spending bill.
President Trump is doing everything he can to force them to hold the line but let's face it, most in Congress are cowards.
It is up to YOU to force them to back down!
It really is simple. The Democrats are holding the entire country hostage in order to push for amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. Barack Obama's DACA amnesty covered around 700k illegals. The Democrats are now demanding amnesty for more than 2.6 million people.
They don't care that the military spouse could go a week without a paycheck because of their antics. They don't care that Federal first responders will have to work without pay. They only care about giving illegal aliens citizenship.
Now that the government has shutdown, we have to double our efforts. We cannot let this amnesty legislation become law. It will mean the end of our country.
If you think that Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell will naturally fight against this amnesty push, then by all means, sit and wait this out.
But if you see how close we are to defeat and how weak the GOP leadership in Congress is, then you must push back now before it's too late!
Republicans fall for it every time. Chuck Schumer went to the podium last night and agreed to let the wall be funded if Trump agreed to give amnesty to millions of illegals. The fact of the matter is that Schumer already voted for the Secure Fence Act in 2006. Then, when Democrats took over the Senate, he worked tirelessly to make sure the wall he voted for would never get built.
Now, he wants to pull the same trick and the GOP leadership is so stupid, they're considering it.
Trump, on the other hand, is standing firm.
But he needs your help to make sure these spineless RINOs don't surrender on amnesty!
