Democrat shutdown attempt to impose illegal alien amnesty

Jan. 20, 2018, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement blasting Senate Democrats for shutting down the government to impose illegal alien amnesty:

“The Democrats have chosen to shut down the government over their demand of amnesty for illegal aliens. Mitch McConnell is right to tell Chuck Schumer that the people of the United States will not be extorted by the Democrat minority that seeks to run the government. It is fitting that the Democrats have chosen a shutdown to try to force illegal aliens to the head of the immigration line in front of those around the world who respect the system and wish to come to America the legal, right way.

“However, today’s shut down is more important than the temporary inconvenience it may cause. The Democrats choosing to shut down the government on the one-year anniversary of President Trump’s taking office in an attempt to impose their legislative minority over those who elected the President to office is emblematic of their general Trump Derangement Syndrome.  It is time for Chuck Schumer and his band of malcontents to come to grips with the fact that Donald Trump is President, and stop their on-going campaign of obstruction at any cost.”
