Schumer Turns Down Republican-backed Illegal Immigration Solution, Instead Blames President For Not Acting
The Illegal Immigration Issue has gotten out of hand. The Mainstream Media is making it out like Trump is personally responsible for the current border issues. They want Trump to use an executive order to change the current situation. But what is he supposed to do? This is a job for Congress. It requires a detailed plan with many facets and intricacies. This is not the time for a quick fix. But Schumer looks like he wants the attention to remain on the President.
U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell Tweeted, letting everyone know that the Republicans are ready to fix the problem.
“I support, and all of the members of the Republican Conference support, a plan that keeps families together while their immigration status is determined.” He Tweeted.
But it looks like his hopes to fix the issues would not be heard by the folks across the aisle.
Schumer made the following statement, basically an indirect way of saying, not my problem.
“There are so many obstacles to legislation and when the president can do it with his own pen, it makes no sense,” Schumer told reporters. “Legislation is not the way to go here when it’s so easy for the president to sign it.”
“Again, the president can change it with his pen,” he said, warning that Republicans would likely try to add poison-pill provisions to any immigration bill that came to the floor.”

The President could make an executive order, but the Democrats would only scrutinize it and claim it is ineffective. There are currently talks of two different bills to fix the border issue, one from each side of the aisle. The problem is no one is willing to accept the others, leaving the issue unresolved. So the Democrats of course now blame the president for not resolving the issue, as they are unwilling to compromise. Where the Republicans want the Democrats to agree to their bill.
In the meantime, the Media is bashing the President, when Congress needs to step up.
