Chuck Schumer has had a long, hard month. He lost his lord and savior Barack Obama. He saw his nemesis, Donald Trump, become leader of the free world. After Trump signed his latest executive order, Schumer just couldn’t take it anymore.
It’s his Democratic party, and he’ll cry if he wants to.
Schumer is upset over President Donald Trump’s executive order that bans travel and immigration from several countries linked to terrorism.
Schumer held a press conference Saturday, flanked by human “props” in a shameless ploy to garner sympathy. Every possible race and nationality and cultural segment was represented. There was the Hispanic man dressed as if he had just come off the construction site. There was a Russian family, complete with a woman in a shawl and red-headed children. There was the Muslim girl in a hijab.
In his statement, Schumer quoted a stanza from “The New Colussus” by Emma Lazarus, the immigration poem emblazoned at the feet of the Statue of Liberty. He also mentioned that his daughter is named after Emma Lazarus.
“This executive order was mean spirited and un-American. It was implemented in a way that created chaos and confusion. It will only work to embolden and inspire those around the globe that would do us harm,” he said.
He then pledged to work with other Democrats to get the order reversed. Over the past eight years, however, he has done nothing to fix the refugee problem. He has also done nothing to fix the red tape and bureaucracy that has kept thousands of decent immigrants from completing the process. Many of those good people, including many Syrian Christians, are now in immigration limbo with this new executive order.
All of that, however, wasn’t going to stop Chuck Schumer from making political hay of the situation, however.
Watch the weepy video for yourself.
Good Lord, Schumer. Pull yourself together. There are people watching.
