How They Voted! #SchumerShutdown Schumer Wants Amnesty Over National Security


Democrats are doing their best to pin the shutdown on Republicans. They are trying to convince people that if they control Congress and the White House, Republicans are responsible. The fact is that the Senate needs 60 votes to keep the spending going and they must have Democrats.

Democrats do whatever Chuck Schumer tells them to do and Schumer has no intention of giving Trump any wins. He knows the media will tell the nation that this is a Republican shutdown when it’s obviously a Schumer Shutdown.

Three Democrats in red states voted ‘yes’, knowing it was going down. They did it get re-elected. The ‘yes’ votes were: Doug Jones in Alabama, who is a Soros-funded Democrat; Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota; and Claire McCaskill in Missouri.

The ‘no’ vote Republicans were: Lindsey Graham who wants amnesty for all while Mike Lee and Rand Paul who were concerned about the spending. The bill gave Democrats every single thing they wanted, but Democrats decided to make amnesty for DACA with nothing in exchange a pre-requisite for funding the government.

John McCain didn’t vote but he wouldn’t have voted for it. He wants amnesty for all, always has. Mitch McConnell had to vote ‘no’ according to Senate rules in order to bring the bill back to the floor.

The Democrats and media believe they can pin the shutdown and the failure of the DACA bill on the President. It’s deceitful but the end justifies the means.

They claim Trump blew up the deal when in fact, Democrats blew it up with a bill that met NONE of the President’s requirements. Democrats are demanding everything they want because amnesty means 4 or 5 red states will turn blue. A recent shocking report claims there are 3.6 million DACA in the United States. Democrats and Lindsey Graham even gave protected status to DAPA.

The final vote was 49-50. See the tally at the end.

The Democrats chose illegal aliens over the military.


“Senate Democrats own the Schumer Shutdown. Tonight, they put politics above our national security, military families, vulnerable children, and our country’s ability to serve all Americans,” Sanders said.

“This is the behavior of obstructionist losers, not legislators,” she said. “When Democrats start paying our armed forces and first responders we will repoen negotiations on immigration reform. During this politically manufactured Schumer shutdown, the President and his administration will fight for and protect the administration.”

“Democrats can’t shut down the booming Trump economy. Are they now so desperate they’ll shut down the government instead?” she retorted, adding the #SchumerShutdown hashtag on Twitter.

  1. What DACA bill. They are at the Very Beginning of those negotiations so what were they expecting to vote ON. Besides, what is the big deal. Before Obama wrote his memo creating this DACA were these illegals being deported, especially given they were living here for quite some time.

    What I Have learned is there are some who are committing Identity Theft which is a serious situation for those whose identity Has been stolen. People have spent literally YEARS trying to correct what has happened, with little help from the Credit Bureaus. I had the experience, over a months period, of fraudulent credit card charges and That alone took months to resolve. I can only imagine the problems one has with stolen identity. So, as far as I am concerned if one of these illegals committed any violation of law they should not be allowed any benefits of living in this country.

  2. At least Congress has their priorities in order.

    Members also complaining to me that the House gym lacks enough towels this morning and they wonder if it’s because of the shutdown.

  3. All sane citizens should copy this list, refer to it in November, and urge the defeat of every Senator (and Representative) that voted No.

    The dimwitted Dems followed the orders of their anti-American, majority leader/dictator, Chuck Schumer in voting No.

    Schumer’s ‘logic’ can be paraphrased as follows: We will vote for the funding bill if it includes unrelated provisions for increases illegal immigration to enable the killing of more innocent American citizens.

    Chuck Schumer is an enemy of the American people. Nancy Pelosi is an enemy of the American people. Both should be in prison.
