The chickens have come home to roost, as it were
The Democrats have a huge problem on their hands as Dreamers, now young adults who’ve been promised the immigration world, are demanding Democrats make good on their promises.
Schumer’s failure to negotiate any meaningful DACA codification into the spending bill has Dreamers incensed and they’re taking action.
Schumer’s NY House:
Protestors showed up at Sen. Schumer’s New York house Tuesday demanding the Senate Minority Leader deliver a DACA deal immediately:

The protest according to the Park Slope Patch:
Hundreds of protesters marched outside of Sen. Charles Schumer’s Park Slope home over his failure to secure an agreement on Dreamers’ immigration status in the deal to reopen the government.
The protesters, organized by local groups including Indivisible Nation BK and Make the Road New York, started outside Grand Army Plaza night then marched to Schumer’s Prospect Park West home on Tuesday night.
Protesters — with signs calling to pass a “Clean Dream Act Now” — called on Schumer to secure a long-term agreement for the legal status of undocumented immigrants brought into the country as children after he voted on a bill to end the government shutdown without them.
“Our community is outraged by the Senate vote to pass a temporary budget deal with no solution for Dreamers,” organizers wrote on the Facebook page. “Our lives are on the line, Chuck! We need a clean Dream Act now — not in three weeks.”
Protests in California
On the left coast, Dreamers are protesting San Diego’s Democrat Party, “to demand a stop to false promises and grow real courage to stand up to the hateful racist anti immigrant Trump Administration,” according to Dreamer advocacy group Cosecha.
Meanwhile, the Trump administration is goading the protests, suggesting angry Dreamers storm Capitol Hill
Reporter: There are a lot of Dreamers in this country who are living on pins and needles, not knowing what their fate is…What is this White House's message to that population?

Just a few months ago, Dreamers interrupted Nancy Pelosi’s press conference screaming, “Democrats are Deporters.”DONATE
