Chuck Schumer: Trump wants to 'tear apart our legal immigration system'


Guess the Chuckster forgot the amnesty plan that fell apart under Obama. Maybe he forgot that DACA circumvents immigration law. Maybe the Chuckster misspoke and thought he said Obama.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D.Y., said Friday he opposes President Trump’s new immigration proposal, and accused the president of using Dreamers to “tear apart our legal immigration system.”

“As we have been urging him to do for months, the president has finally put pen to paper to show us where he stands on immigration. Unfortunately, this plan flies in the face of what most Americans believe,” Schumer tweeted Friday.

“While @realDonaldTrump finally acknowledged that the Dreamers should be allowed to stay here and become citizens, he uses them as a tool to tear apart our legal immigration system and adopt the wish list that anti-immigration hardliners have advocated for for years,” the minority leader continued.


Can you tell that to our non-partisan poster ? As I told him president Trump not only agreed to the “650,000” but up the numbers of dreamers to 1,800,000 to make an utter fool of the democrats ! Trump knew they would reject the offer , so all dealS are dead in the water and the dems will take the HEAT !!! :laughing::laughing::laughing:


No reasoning with the unreasonable.


Well Duh Chuckie… those ‘hardliners’ are a rather large group and growing… We got bite in a ‘good faith’ effort in 1986 and have not forgotten…

P.S. - Donald, screw this up at your peril…


Isn’t that the truth.

I suspect in February we will see yet another shutdown.


President trying to have consistent immigration policy.There has to be consistent criteria for immigration regardless what country they’re from.
President Trump is allowing the Legislative Branch of government to do its job,while stating what he wants included for his signature. He has been truthful in stating that without funding for the wall, there won’t be an immigration bill. That isn’t hard to understand.


And the wall should be augmented by e-verify, end of chain migration as well as the end of the lottery system.


The dems are more interested in getting immigrants with no skills and no education , they are much easier to CONTROL !!!


We mustn’t blame this entire problem on dems… low wage business from illegals to temporary work visas are no less of a problem. This is no doubt the biggest reason we see no E-Verify in the offering…


The employers dislike it as out makes them responsible for voting their employees. Today, how did I know their documentation was stolen, made up?


The claim is it would make the deal very hard to pass because the resistance of harming growers and ranchers who claim they will lose their businesses . And the same old line that Americans won’t do those jobs . Everyone wants cheap labor and seem to forget cheap labor impacts all wages .
