During a speech on the Senate floor on Tuesday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) urged President Trump to sign the agreement reached by the immigration conference committee.
Schumer said, “I urge President Trump to sign this agreement. We must not have a rerun of what happened a few months back, where legislators, Democrat and Republican, House and Senate, agreed, and President Trump pulled the rug out from under the agreement and caused a shutdown. If he opposes this agreement, the same thing could happen again. We don’t need it. So, I strongly urge the president to sign this agreement. No one gets everything they want in these agreements. The president must sign it and not, not, not cause another shutdown.”
