There’s probably no one in the U.S. Senate that loves to hear themselves speak more than Senate Democrat Leader Chuck Schumer. But that’s coming back to bite him.
That’s because Schumer running his mouth has him in HUGE trouble with the White House after what he just leaked.
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) praised the “aggressive investment in American families, American workers, American national defense” contained in the 4,155-page omnibus budget measure at a news conference held on Thursday after the Senate passed it.
“There’s so many good things in the bill. It’s hard to get them all out,” he said.
The Majority Leader was asked by a reporter if the “fight” over Title 42 (which has now been ordered to stay by the U.S. Supreme Court), will continue into 2023.
“Well, I think, first, I think the Biden administration realizes it has to come up with a real plan for the border that’s not punitive or health-oriented” Schumer said — seeming to admit that Biden has no “real” plan at the moment.
“You know, Title 42 has no consequences,” Schumer said.
“So you cross the border, you push back on the other side, and the same people cross over and over again. It’s not a comprehensive plan that’s ever gonna work,” he added.
The Biden administration is allegedly “working” on a strategy to resolve the border situation, according to Schumer’s subsequent claim.
Naturally, this runs counter to what Vice President Kamala Harris said about the border when she asserted that everything was under control.
“And so the Biden administration’s coming up with one, and I think you’re gonna find that Democrats are going to be the party that’s constructive about dealing with the border instead of using it for political purposes, which they (Republicans) did in this election, and it didn’t work. They did in the 2018 election.”
Schumer also asserted that the “immigration” debate has never been successful for conservatives and Republicans, which appears to be ignorant of the fact that Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election by making resolving the border situation his top priority.
“To remember, we saw the hordes — the — the anti-immigration sentiment that is in the right wing of the Republican Party is not where the American people are. It appeals to maybe the third of the electorate that’s furthest to the right. But I’ve never seen it work politically.”
It’s noteworthy that, as of this writing, the Biden administration has not yet disclosed the quantity of migrants it “encounters” at the southwest border during the tumultuous month of November, when individuals and groups of hundreds or possibly thousands of people crossed the border.
Some outlets have noted that it’s unusual for those data to be posted with such a delay.
We’re hearing from some Democrats like Schumer that the border crisis is an issue that they are working on solving.
We’re hearing from other Democrats that the border crisis is just an issue that they don’t want to solve right now because there’s “more important things” as the President himself once said.
And we’re hearing from some other Democrats that there is no border crisis to speak of at all.
So which is it?
If Schumer is right that the Democrats are “tackling” the problem, how are they going to do that when half their party thinks it’s racist to deny anyone entry into the United States?
Sadly, the truth is that Schumer is just giving lip service to the suburban and rural Democrat voters who are becoming fed up with the Democrat Party leaving them behind by becoming so radical.
It’s the Democrats’ insane policies like open borders that the American voters reject, and he knows that so he’s just trying to buy the Democrats time.
