Senator Chuck Schumer’s (D-NY) attempt to shutdown the government to give illegal immigrants priority over our American troops has failed. Senate Democrats voted on Monday to pass a three-week spending bill, which funds the government until February 8.
The “Schumer Shutdown” was thwarted by a vote in the Senate, 81-18, for the three-week Continuing Resolution (CR); which was an overwhelming bipartisan accomplishment.
“One Senate Democratic source told reporters that the CR is “good to go” in the Senate, and revealed that Democrats remain fully aware of the negative polling that suggests that Democrats will take the blame for shutting the government to force a vote on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) illegal aliens,” reports Breitbart.
Manchin, leaving Dem caucus, says the 3-wk CR may even get 70 votes.
