Scalise Calls Out Schumer for Flip-Flop Stance On Illegal Immigration.
House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) had some words for Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Sunday.
Schumer’s unwillingness to approve the funding for border security is a huge flip-flop from his past calls for stronger borders.
The partial govt. shutdown is thanks to democrats like Schumer suddenly changing their tune on border security and refusing to approve the funding that is needed for the border wall.
President Donald Trump will not sign a bill without the funding for a border wall but the Senate Democrats are digging in and refusing to vote for a bill that includes the $5 billion Trump needs.
The appropriations bill needs 60 Senators to vote for it in order for it to pass. So far, Schumer isn’t willing to give President Trump an inch on border wall funding.
It’s funny because this is a completely different tune from what Schumer was singing in 2009. President Trump dug up the perfect clip of Schumer and posted it on his Twitter in August saying, “Chuck Schumer, I agree!”

It’s obvious that the whole thing is about nothing more than politics to the democrats. They have no care for the future of America or its citizens, all they care about is winning.
