Democrats are holding out for an extension of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program before voting on a federal budget. Americans who voted for President Donald Trump want to see DACA gone.
The government might shut down. Deneen Borelli of the Conservative Review asks why Democratic didn’t “fix” Barack Obama’s DACA program while he was still in office? Borelli calls it fake outrage, just more of the same “resist Trump” antics.
Co-panelist Ford O’Connell, a political analyst and Republican strategist, sees the shutdown threat as an advantage for President Trump. It shows the Democrats are “willing to hold the government hostage in the name of illegal immigration.”
Democrats are just using scare tactics, Borelli said. They have no other message than “resist Trump,” “impeach Trump.”
