Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s (D-NY) recent outburst blasting President Trump over his decision to end DACA exposes the Senator’s hypocrisy.
In 2009, Schumer believed illegal aliens should not be treated the same as legal immigrants.
From the video (5:08).
“People who enter the United States without our permission are illegal aliens and illegal aliens should not be treated the same as people who entered the U.S. legally.”
The Daily Caller story on Schumer’s speech highlights other examples of the Senator’s double speak:
“The American people are fundamentally pro-legal immigration and anti-illegal immigration,” Schumer explained at the conference. “We will only pass comprehensive reform when we recognize this fundamental concept.”
Following Trump’s decision to end DACA, Schumer harshly criticized Trump.
Schumer said, “The president’s decision to end DACA was heartless and brainless….”
Before President Trump, Schumer opposed equal treatment of illegal aliens and with Trump as president, opposing former President Obama’s DACA executive action is “heartless.”
For Democrats like Schumer, it’s not about policy – it’s only about resisting Trump at every turn.
