Trump Reminds “Cryin’ Chuck Schumer” That DACA Negotiations Must Include a Wall

Trump Reminds “Cryin’ Chuck Schumer” That DACA Negotiations Must Include a Wall

You have no upper hand, Chuck.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) needs to snap back into reality. Look, the Democrats do not have control of Congress and Donald Trump is our president and it looks like Schumer still isn’t ready to accept the fact that he doesn’t have power. Even after he failed with the government shutdown he thinks he has negotiating power when he decided to take wall funding off the table.

Trump reminded “Cryin’ Chuck Schumer” that in order to receive protections for DACA, a bill must have funding for a wall.

(I’m still laughing at Cryin’ Chuck Schumer)

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told the media on Tuesday that it’s not just about the wall, according to Townhall:

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said during Tuesday’s press briefing the president does not accept the immigration proposal put forth by Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham (SC) and Jeff Flake (AZ), and Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin (IL).

“In a bipartisan meeting here at the White House two weeks ago we outlined a path forward on four issues: serious border security, an end to chain migration, the cancellation of the outdated and unsafe visa lottery and a permanent solution to DACA,” Sanders said. “Unfortunately, the Flake-Graham-Durbin agreement does not meet these bench marks.”

Moderate Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin (WV) has gone against the minority leader, saying “that the border security measures, including the wall, that the president has called for are necessary.” Politico continued:

“Then you have the border, border security, border wall, whatever you want to call it. They’re getting into a tiff about this, Chris. We have to have border security. We know that. So if the president calls it a border wall, we do need wall. We need to repair some wall. We need to build some new wall. We need other technologies, too,” Manchin told CNN “New Day” host Chris Cuomo.

“Fentanyl, which is a deadly drug, it comes mostly through the mail. Okay? Security, we talk about walls. We need everything. We need technology. We need drones. We need new agents We need border patrol. We also need dock patrol, basically, where it comes through our ports,” he added. “We need high-speed boats to intercept. We’re talking about all of this. So when you hear someone talk about just the wall, there’s a lot more than the wall and we’re going to do whatever it takes to secure this country.”

Do Schumer’s glasses slide further down his nose as it gets longer?

I’d swap the wall for a super e-Verify which applied to every employer, even day labor and domestic/landscape help and which had significant penalties for employers caught with illegals. And the Border Patrol/ICE personnel to enforce it. Something like $2,000.00 fine per illegal for a first offense. For a second offense (different day) $5,000.00 per illegal and 5 years. $10,000.00 and ten years for each subsequent offense. Oh yeah, and the power to inspect employer’s premises without a warrant, solely to determine compliance with the e-Verify Act.

Is that no work on your part clean house or mowed lawn worth $2,000.00 for each of the illegals caught cleaning or mowing it, or going to jail for being caught the second time. Of course if you hire a lawn care or house cleaning company, it is the company which has the problem, not the homeowner.

    Why propose punishing Americans? Every time we “crack down” on illegal aliens, we simply make Americans work harder and jump higher hoops, and lose more constitutional protections.

    I’d FAR FAR FAR rather, make it legal to hire Americans on the same terms as illegal aliens.

    It shouldn’t take a 1/4″ of paper to hire an American. Young Americans in particular shouldn’t be paying SS and Medicare tax (FICA) when employed. Nor should their income taxes be withheld.

    But of course, these are the glues that keep the $$ flowing to DC and reps in power. SCREW THEM, NOT AMERICANS working hard.

    Give Americans true freedom, not fake freedom, just like illegal aliens.

      Exactly. E verify is the employers version of the TSA that gropes your granny because no one has the back bone to profile actual terrorists. Somehow we got to a place where it’s better to inconvenience everyone than offend an offender.

    And let me say this:

    Paying taxes ISN’T what makes Americans great.

    What makes Americans great is our CULTURE.

    I’m sure most of you saw that excellent article discussing a peace corp worker’s time in Senegal.

    They have no concept of a “job” and when “hired” simply steal everything for their family. That way lies ruin.

    Great article. We completely diminish the importance of culture in favor of “politics.” We must have more self-knowledge and self-regard.

    You don’t need to be a citizen, obviously, to run a company in the USSA, whether corp, LLC or DBA, where the officers may be the only employees. I will personally hire any company that shows up to plow my snow or mow my lawn that offers the lowest price. I worked as an illegal alien in Mexico and Argentina and I see no reason to value citizenship over the human right to sell one’s labor in a free market.

    Furthermore, I would strongly oppose searching any of my property without a proper warrant. Any real Amerikan feels the same way.

      there might be some kind of point to your rambling, but when you write things like “USSA” and “Amerikan” everyone reading is going to tune you out at first glance. Consider this a helpful hint.

      Re: Jimbino

      I don’t support allowing illegal aliens to work here. Not my point.

      Our politicians are engaged in an internal civil war with THEMSELVES. On one hand, they wish to buy votes by giving Americans every version of social welfare Americans ask for. Unemployment insurance, social security, medicaid, student loans and grants, SBA loans, etc, etc., ad nauseum, which requires lots of taxes from employees and LOTS of paperwork to maintain.

      On the OTHER hand, they are trying to garner the contributions and assuage the concerns of employers, who want little paperwork and low wages.

      Thus, the twin goals of a politician are ALWAYS at odds with each other. By the number of foreigners in the U.S. right now, it’s clear that the employers control the politicians more often than the great mass of citizens.

      Politicians SHOULD be enforcing our law, stopping the illegal invasion (which the federal govt is supposed to do under the Constitution, Art. 4, Sec. 4), and then give Americans the tough love of deconstructing our welfare socialist high tax system so that employers can hire again at reasonable wages and with little red tape, and Americans can retrieve their incentives to work and find again that the taxes do not eat up their income at the margins.

      There is much for Congress to do, but it simply cannot stop being schizophrenic.

    The reform has to be multi-faceted. The wall “system” will help with the southern border to slow the flow from Central and South America, as well as from other continents. Don’t forget the reports of border patrol finding Korans and prayer rugs in AZ and other states.

    However, getting rid of the visa lottery and chain migration will help with people from other countries. Do these family members contribute or take away from the economy?

    E-verify, reform of employment & student visas, and merit based migration will help with the employment issues in America.

It is well past the time for “Sue and Settle” to be used by Repubs as it has been by the Dems.

Trump should order Snuffy Sessions to consent to amendment of the pleadings in the DAPA action in Texas and allow that court to have a crack at DACA too. And Trump should have the DOJ settle and consent to an injunction.

Thank God we finally found a leader who will fight.

I look back at McConnell and McCain and even Bush in disgust. And how do they expect to return to the status quo now that we’ve seen what real leadership can accomplish?

Not this hill, just can’t whip the votes, Senate decorum, surrender gracefully yada yada. Go away from us and take your Failure Theater with you.

When we defeat our enemies, we tend to their wounded and treat captured soldiers humanely.

But traitors… traitors we hang.

    “we finally found a leader who will fight”

    The swamp knew that Trump was to be feared.

    The voters knew that we needed a leader.

    tom_swift in reply to Fen. | January 24, 2018 at 7:16 pm

    Thank God we finally found a leader who will fight.

    Actually, he found us. There’s really no mechanism in the American political system to recruit candidates who are worth spit. The only thing which might do that would be some kind of draft system—some American who isn’t just a power-mad parasite would be voted into office and not given right of refusal.

    Not too practical, I’m afraid.

The thing about modern America is the number of massive scandals. Normally, this DACA thing would be a big deal. But now in comparison to the systemic corruption of the FBI/DoJ, everything else seems trivial.

I’m not a fan of wasting time on trivial bullshit like dealing with Chuck Schumer’s delusions while a coup is going on.

DREAMERS better come to terms with reality: Neither Democrats nor Republicans care about them. They are just a bargaining chip within a bigger scheme.
Democrats have no intention, at least in the short term, to grant them amnesty. For Democrats, DACA is a token that they used for posturing and for “Trump-GOP-are-heartless” propaganda. which they can use NOW, as opposed to getting potential votes 7-10 years from now.
But Trump calling their bluff put them in a lose-lose situation.
Now the dreamers’ only intelligent choice seems to be to side with Trump and demand border security so that they can get a chance to stay. If they are smart they will refuse to listen to the Democrat mermaid songs and embrace Trump’s concrete offer.
That’s a lot more than they’ll get from the Dims.

    Dreamers or DACA?

    DACA covers only about 700,000 “kids that fall into specific criteria. The DREAM Act proposal covers a far larger number of people.

      Exiliado in reply to Liz. | January 24, 2018 at 1:36 pm

      I think Trump’s offer covers only DACA recipients, but I am not 100% sure.

        amwick in reply to Exiliado. | January 24, 2018 at 1:56 pm

        I think that any arrangement or deal with respect to DACA could and more than likely will be expanded to include dreamers as a whole, and then all illegal aliens, every last one. The question is when. So, in the long run, nothing is 100% certain.

        Let’s watch over the next few weeks. I think the language will be important.

        Certain people are thinking the “DACA” group and will use the number 700,000. I would trust them to be talking about the group that was covered under Obama’s policy. They are the ones that are impacted by Trump reversing the policy

        The group that wants more expansive coverage will use the terms “DREAMERS”. And, even if the agreement covers only the DACA group, these people will find ways to paint the Rs as mean people, unwilling to give all the “Dreamers” a chance.

Trump isn’t the usual wet noodle Republican who caves in as soon as the media gangs up on him and says unkind things like a gaggle of mean girls. He wasn’t elected to “get along” and “find middle ground.” Mitt Romney and John McCain got their butts handed to them. America elected Trump, and he won against all political factions and all political odds.

As Fen said, thank God we have a leader who fights.

I don’t know if he is right on every subject, but I haven’t seen him be wrong yet.

    I dunno. When I walked up to women and exercised my right to grab their pussies, I was busted.

      I bet you did it in all 57 states while eating a dog.

      Barry in reply to Jimbino. | January 24, 2018 at 3:05 pm

      No woman would let you within sight, much less close enough to grab.

      And they’d beat you senseless if you did. The only pussy you’ll be grabbing is yourself.

      Hey Jim, the reason the gold-digging celebrity groupies Trump was referring to didn’t LET you grab their pussies is because you identify as a Loser.

      I know that since Economics is a problematic systemic patriarchy set up by privileged white men to oppress LGBTQAPPKSMALBE’s, it wasn’t taught at your Indoctrination Center… But there exists this thing called “transactional sex” where a woman will allow you to grab her pussy and exchange for the opportunity to marry your bank account.

      Do you have a bank account?

      tom_swift in reply to Jimbino. | January 24, 2018 at 7:22 pm

      Which is the point of Trump’s comment. He can do it … you can’t. He’s the alpha dog, you’re a weenie. He’s President of the United States, and you’re … something else.

    Romney and McCain and their rino ilk are wet noodles.

    The democrats are stale bread.

    Trump is titanium. (So are we, for that matter.)

By the way, if Schumer had a quarter of an ounce of decency left in his body, he would resign as minority leader.
He f—ed up big time.

    TX-rifraph in reply to Exiliado. | January 24, 2018 at 1:01 pm

    “…an ounce of decency left…”

    This would be leftover from before he sold his soul? That would before I had ever heard of him.

    murkyv in reply to Exiliado. | January 24, 2018 at 7:52 pm

    And next in the Senate Dem lineup for their Senate Leader…

    “Little Dick” Durbin

    With Patti ” But, Bin Laden Builds Schools” Murray moving up to Second in Command

    Makes Schumer sound better when that’s taken into consideration

We also need to stop providing government aid to non-citizens. If people come to the USA they should be required to support themselves.
