Democrats Reject Legislative Fix To Stop Family Separations: “Want To Keep Focus On Trump”
The Senate minority leader demanded that President Trump fix the situation himself. He refuses to negotiate a legislative fix with Republicans.
Crying Chuck isn’t crying for these families. Now he passes the buck. Legislation and fixing the immigration problem is the duty of Congress. And Chucky boy once again refuses to do the job he’s paid for.
The MSM was silent when the Bush administration and Obama administration separated border-crossing families for processing and detention, a policy that was broke and chronicled by Breitbart Texas, which revealed, in 2014, photos how Obama’s DHS was cramming child border crossers into detention facilities.

Revealing it’s completely political. And Trump can’t change the law, he can only enforce it. The problem stems from Obama not enforcing the law and creating the influx although there’s less of a problem now than there was under Obama. –WZ

Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) on Tuesday dismissed a legislative proposal backed by Republican leaders to keep immigrant families together at the border, arguing that President Trump could fix the problem more easily with a flick of his pen.
“There are so many obstacles to legislation and when the president can do it with his own pen, it makes no sense,” Schumer told reporters. “Legislation is not the way to go here when it’s so easy for the president to sign it.”
Asked if that meant Democrats would not support a bill backed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to keep immigrant families together while seeking asylum on the U.S. border, Schumer said they want to keep the focus on Trump.

“Illegal Immigration is wrong, plain and simple. Illegal aliens should not be treated the same as people who entered the U.S. legally.”
