NEW YORK (AP) – Protesters continue to rally and protest outside Sen. Chuck Schumer’s house in Brooklyn NY to denounce the deal to end the government shutdown without protections for illegal aliens.
About 75 people held signs demanding “Clean Dream Act Now” and “No! Not One More Deportation!” Some chanted “If Chuck won’t let us dream, we won’t let him sleep.”
Senate Democrats – led by Schumer – angered liberal activists and illegals Monday by yielding on GOP demands to reopen the government without an immigration deal to protect from deporting young illegal aliens known as “Dreamers.”
Tuesday’s protest was organized by local groups including Make the Road New York.
Democrats are proving once again that they are indeed the true masters of hypocrisy, double standards and flip-flopping.
Less than 5 years ago, all 54 Democrats in the Democrat-controlled Senate voted to:
• double the length of a new border fence with Mexico
• end the diversity visa lottery
• spend $40 billion on border security
• double the number of border agents to 40,000
• stop family members of U.S. citizens from coming here on reunification visas
• create “merit-based” visas
Before that, in 2006, Democrats like Chuck Schumer, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Joe Biden voted to construct hundreds of miles of fencing along the border. (See: Boston Globe headline: “In 2006, Democrats were saying ‘build that fence!'”)
But terrified of upsetting their militantly-liberal base, Democrats have gone AWOL on the very policies they supported just a few years ago.
Don’t let Democrats forget their long history of supporting many of the same measures President Trump is championing today.

Allowing 2 million illegal Aliens “Dreamers” to stay here in the U.S. would cost US taxpayers $25.9 billion over the next ten years, the Congresssional Budget Office said in a report released Friday.
Dreamers are the prospective beneficiaries of the DREAM Act (Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors), legislation introduced in the U.S. Senate earlier this year to provide a pathway to citizenship for some illegal Aliens.
They would include those who’ve participated in DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), received temporary protected status, or have fulfilled certain educational requirements.
The report says that of the 11 to 12 million illegal Aliens currently in the U.S. (Way more than that) some 3.25 million would be eligible for the DREAM Act. However, the report estimates that only 2 million would apply, 1.6 million of whom would earn legal status over the next 10 years. A remaining 1 million would become citizens with that same time period, which would allow them to sponsor relatives, the report states.
DACA, originally implemented in 2012 under Obama through executive order, allowed individuals who entered the United States illegally as minors to receive a two-year period of deferred action and elligibility for a work permit.
By 2017 approximately 800,000 individuals – or Dreamers – were taking advantage of DACA. The Trump administration announced its intention to ax DACA earlier this year.
We must end DACA now and except no Amnesty. Any negotiation with DACA, Amnesty or Sanctuary Cities and States, only rewards those who have broken our laws, advertises our weakness for enforcing our laws, gives Sanctuary to criminals and worst of all funds everything with American Tax-Dollars!. Call your Congressman today and say NO!.
