Democrats no longer work for the citizens that elected them. They work for people who break our laws and sneak into this country illegally. That would rather fight for criminals than to see a patriotic soldier get their paycheck. This is the modern Democrat Party!
Chuck Schumer in 2013: Democrats would never shut down the government over immigration because it would be chaos.
“I’ll give you the basic line,” Mr. Schumer relented after twice declining to comment on the shutdown situation. “The basic line is: No matter how strongly one feels about an issue, you shouldn’t hold millions of people hostage. That’s what the other side is doing. That’s wrong and we can’t give in to that.” ~ Chuck Schumer September 2013
