Crazy Pelosi Brags About Protecting DREAMERS After Senate Democrats Block Funding in Favor of Illegal Aliens

GatewayPundit - Sat, 01/20/2018 - 06:20

As previously reported, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders released a blistering statement late Friday night on the Senate Democrats blocking funding the federal government in favor of amnesty for illegal alien DACA recipients.

The Trump administration is putting America first and the Senate Democrats dug in their heels Friday night, shutting down the government in favor of illegal aliens.

The House budget resolution failed a cloture vote in the Senate on a largely party line vote, 50 to 49.

The Schumer Shutdown went in to effect shortly after midnight Saturday.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) went on a tweetstorm then released a full statement on the government shutdown.

Pelosi gave President Trump an “F” for failure:

Tonight, on the eve of the first anniversary of his inauguration, @realDonaldTrump earned an ‘F’ for failure in leadership. #TrumpShutdown

— Nancy Pelosi (@NancyPelosi) January 20, 2018

Pelosi accused Republicans of being blinded to their duties to the American people as she protects illegal aliens. Makes sense.

.@realDonaldTrump, @HouseGOP, & @SenateGOP were so obsessed with the #GOPTaxScam, they were blinded to their duties to the American people. Despite controlling the White House, House, & Senate, their incompetence meant they couldn’t keep government open. #TrumpShutdown

— Nancy Pelosi (@NancyPelosi) January 20, 2018

Pelosi kept whining…

During the 2013 #GOPShutdown, @realDonaldTrump said of Pres. Obama “the problems start from the top and have to get solved from the top…”

But as President, he says “our country needs a good shutdown.” #TrumpShutdown

— Nancy Pelosi (@NancyPelosi) January 20, 2018

Pelosi ended her tweetstorm by saying there is no such thing as a “good shutdown”:

Let me be clear: there is no such thing as a “good shutdown.” #TrumpShutdown

— Nancy Pelosi (@NancyPelosi) January 20, 2018

In Pelosi’s full statement she bragged about protecting illegal invaders (DREAMERS):

“Tonight, on the eve of the first anniversary of his inauguration, President Trump earned an ‘F’ for failure in leadership.

“President Trump and Congressional Republicans’ obsession with passing a tax scam to benefit the wealthiest and corporations has blinded them to their responsibilities to the American people.  Despite controlling the House, Senate and White House, the Republicans are so incompetent, so negligent that they couldn’t get it together to keep government open.

“President Trump said of President Obama at the time of the 2013 GOP Government Shutdown, ‘the problems start from the top and have to get solved from the top… The President is the leader, and he’s got to get everybody in a room and he’s got to lead.’

“Now as President, President Trump tweets that ‘our country needs a good shutdown.’  There is no such thing as a good shutdown of government.  Republicans’ total inability to govern is once again threatening our economy, weakening communities, and dangerously depriving the military of the certainty they need to keep our nation safe.

“I am proud of House and Senate Democrats’ unity in insisting on a budget that supports our military and the domestic investments that keep our nation strong, and that honors our values by protecting the DREAMers.

“I hope that we can now conduct bipartisan negotiations where we find our common ground to honor our responsibility to meet the needs of the American people.”

White House Statement on #SchumerShutdown: Democrats Holding US Citizens Hostage to Get Deal for Illegal Aliens

GatewayPundit - Sat, 01/20/2018 - 05:51

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders released a blistering statement late Friday night on the Senate Democrats blocking funding the federal government in favor of amnesty for illegal alien DACA recipients. Sanders made clear the Trump administration is putting Americans first in the budget negotiations while the Democrats, led by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York, were shutting down the government in favor of illegal aliens over American citizens.

The House continuing budget resolution to fund the government through February 16 (and the Children’s Health Insurance Program for six years) failed a cloture vote in the Senate on a largely party line vote, 50 to 49. All Democrats voted against cloture except Senators Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Doug Jones of Alabama, Claire McCaskill of Missouri, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Manchin of West Virginia. All Republicans voted for cloture except Jeff Flake of Arizona, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Mike Lee of Utah. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky voted no for procedural reasons. An absent John McCain of Arizona did not vote.

Sanders’ statement:

Senate Democrats own the Schumer Shutdown. Tonight, they put politics above our national security, military families, vulnerable children, and our country’s ability to serve all Americans. We will not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands. This is the behavior of obstructionist losers, not legislators. When Democrats start paying our armed forces and first responders we will reopen negotiations on immigration reform. During this politically manufactured Schumer Shutdown, the President and his Administration will fight for and protect the American people.”
