Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) had his New York home surrounded by protestors Tuesday. An activist group partially funded by George Soros, known as United We Dream scheduled and held the protest outside of Schumer’s residence. The protestors chanted in unison, “We want a clean Dream Act…When do we want it…Now.”
Schumer and other Democrats in the Senate refused to sign a spending bill last week to fund the government after Republicans refused to include amnesty for illegals in the legislation.
Because Republicans refused to cave to Democrat demands, the Government was shut down. Days later Democrats agreed on a temporary spending bill which would fund the government through February 8, however, the legislation did not include any provisions offering protection for illegals.
To get the temporary funding measure passed, Republicans agreed to hear arguments for a bill which would address the illegal immigrants who were granted temporary protection under Obama’s executive order known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).
This outraged the illegal immigrant community who have since been protesting with other open borders and mass immigration activist proponents.
United We Dream’s website had a message to recruit activist to gather at Schumer’s home Tuesday which read, “Join us outside Senator Schumer’s house to remind him: Our lives are on the line, Chuck! We need a clean Dream Act Now-not in three weeks. Now. 122 Dreamers will continue to lose their status every day, potentially losing their jobs and being put at risk of deportation. Congress can’t continue to push the lives of 800,000 youth and their families aside. Dreamers are tired of empty promises and need a legislative solution NOW!”
The “clean Dream Act” the protestors and illegal aliens are demanding would consist of granting amnesty to illegals currently protected by DACA and amnesty for their families, without any provisions for increased border security or revised immigration policies.
Democrats are the minority in Congress and do not hold enough seats to get such legislation passed, although Schumer would probably cave to the demands of illegals and open border activists if he and his party did wield the political power.
United We Dream is also very critical of President Trump’s border wall and unwittingly admits on its website that it would work.
The website states, “It is past time for Senator Schumer to use his political power in Congress as the minority leader and finally bring home a clean #DreamActNow for undocumented youth, without compromising the future of their families by funding a racist wall and increased border security measures that only tear families apart.”
Admitting that a wall and increased border security would “tear families apart” essentially means these illegals intend to continue to have their families cross the border illegally.
The message also implies that such measures would work and hordes of illegals would be stopped by increased border security and President Trump’s “big beautiful wall” on our southern border.
The angry mob of illegals and open border activists were chanting in Spanish at times and as the protest went on into the night the activist began chanting “If he won’t let us dream, we won’t let him sleep.”
Support for amnesty and a “clean Dream Act” is waning and shutting down the government in an attempt to force those policies through was a complete failure by Democrats.
So far, legislation proposed by Democrats since the shutdown has not been supported by President Trump.
President Trump has held firm that any bill granting protections for current DACA recipients would have to include funding for a border wall, an end to chain migration, and an end to the visa lottery.
President Trump contends a border wall would dramatically reduce the number of foreign nationals illegally invading our country and that ending chain migration and the visa lottery would go a long way in stopping the hordes of unqualified, low skilled foreign nationals from the third world from continuing to flood into the United States.
At the end of the night, the protestors accomplished little, and Congress is no closer to passing a “clean Dream Act.”
In 2017 America, illegals and their enablers are gathering en masse outside of our politician’s homes, making demands that run counter to the will and interest of the American people.
