The New York senator bashed Trump’s temporary ban on refugees, complete with full on fake tears. Problem is when you are un the public eye like Schumer you leave a paper trail a mile wide behind you.
In this case Schumer is on record saying a halt to the resettlement of Syrian refugees on American soil might be necessary when Obama was president. Now with Trump he’s all tears?
“We’re waiting for the briefing tomorrow, a pause may be necessary. We’re going to look at it,” Schumer said in November 2015, as per The Hill.
A representative for Speaker Paul Ryan at the time heralded Chuck Schumer’s statement about refugee vetting. Ryan called the liberal lawmaker’s comments a prime example of “bipartisan concern” over the resettlement of Middle East refugees.
West Virginia Representative Joe Manchin, a conservative Democrat also supported Obama’s Syrian refugee ban. Senator Manchin urged Obama to not permit another Syrian refugee into America unless and until federal authorities could give a 100 percent guarantee they were not associated with ISIS.
Senator Dick Durbin’s ripped Obama’s plan at the time calling it, “simplistic reaction to a very complicated challenge. Background checks need to be redoubled in terms of refugees, but if we’re talking about threats to the United States, let’s put this in perspective.”
Point is Trump’s plan is a very common sense solution to a big problem and even the democrats, if they are honest, were open to it under Obama. Proving they are frauds.
