Just a brain-refresher here: the last shutdown was ended with a temporary package that expires on Thursday.
If Congress doesn’t act this week, the federal government will shut down for the second time this year.
Lawmakers are up against two key deadlines that were put in place as part of the negotiations to reopen the government last month, creating a short window to show substantial signs of progress on a deal to protect undocumented immigrants who came to this country as children and their families. Immigration negotiators say they’ve taken steps in the right direction, but no deal to address the contentious issue has thus far emerged.
The first deadline is Thursday, when government funding runs out. The second is to reach a long-stalled deal on immigration before Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell opens a promised freewheeling floor debate to try to settle the contentious issue.
Congressional leader from both parties have said they don’t foresee a second shutdown, but as of Sunday evening, it’s not clear if congressional leaders have the votes to pass such a measure through both the Senate and the House.
The diabolical kike Chuck Schumer is in a very uncomfortable position here.
Whatever remains of his “moderate” base is appalled by the idea of a government shutdown for the sake of non-citizens.
And with Trump’s offer – labeled the “Make America White Again Plan” by Nancy Pelosi – he isn’t even arguing for non-citizens that are already here, but theoretical immigrants yet to arrive. Because the current plan on the table that Trump has offered is to legalize the DACA babies in exchange for basically shutting down immigration completely.
So Schumer shutting it down for the sake of people who have never even been to America – that’s a hard sell with anyone who isn’t totally frothing-at-the-mouth.
BUT – the biggest part of his base is frothing-at-the-mouth, begging to see the white race destroyed by overwhelming invasion numbers.
He blinked when Trump called his bluff last time, so I don’t see how he can not do that a second time. If he wasn’t planning to do it a second time, then why would he have ever done it the first time?
