Chuck Schumer Says Republicans Will Fight The Wall And Support DACA If They See These Pictures

How do the following pictures make you feel?

These are pictures of deportations. According to Chuck Schumer, Republicans would feel completely opposed to Trump’s border wall and begin to support DACA if they would simply look at these pictures.

“These were children brought into this country at no choice of their own,” say many Democrats. They refuse to tell you that many of these deported individuals aren’t only convicted of being in the country illegally. A majority of these individuals have committed a variety of crimes to bring the attention of immigration officials and to effect their deportation.

Regardless, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer believes that Republicans will join the Democratic Party to protect illegal immigrants if the media shows pictures of people getting deported.

“God forbid, but the pictures of people being deported will rally the nation,” Schumer said Wednesday on “The Rachel Maddow Show.” “And these more mainstream Republicans — admittedly, not a majority of the Republican Party, but enough — when they add them to Democrats, could pass the bill.”

So look again:

Feel sorry that these people got deported? Feel opposed to the border wall? Didn’t think so.

Schumer also said that the Democrats “are in better shape than five days ago” before the party refused to extend funding for the government without protections for beneficiaries of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, forcing a government shutdown.

Some Republicans have indicated that they are willing to protect the childhood arrivals, but the White House insists that it won’t support any DACA deal without funding for the border wall. Schumer, however, no longer wants to offer border funding.

“We’re going to have to start on a new basis and the wall offer is off the table,” the minority leader told reporters Tuesday.

The Democratic base ridiculed Schumer after he allowed a vote to reopen the government Monday, criticizing him for taking a stand against Republicans for nothing.
