Dems ‘Refused’ To Even Listen To Border Security Briefing


Senator Schumer and other members of Democratic leadership reportedly interrupted DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen as she attempted to brief them on border security.

DHS Spokeswoman Katie Waldman: “Democrats in the room either don’t care that there is a humanitarian crisis on the border or just prefer ignorance. It was incredibly disheartening that they don’t want to know the facts when making policy.”

Democratic lawmakers brought a border security briefing at the White House to a screeching halt Wednesday, refusing to even listen to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, a White House official tells The Daily Caller.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy echoed this version of events to reporters outside the White House immediately after the briefing, saying, “Once the secretary started, Schumer interrupted her and didn’t want to hear it.”

Republican and Democratic lawmakers after the meeting indicated little progress was made toward ending the partial government shutdown and that they agreed to reconvene Friday. The White House official says there was a consensus in the room that negotiations would be put on hold until Pelosi officially assumed her expected role of Speaker.

The White House official told TheDC that both Pelosi and Schumer refused to hear out Nielsen’s briefing and instead advocated for two solutions to end the government shutdown. Neither of the Democratic options would provide the additional funding for border security requested by The White House. More

Their position really isn’t going to help them at all. They are like a pack of dogs they just want to intimidate for power and don’t care about the people that vote for them one little bit. 

Americans want border security, a wall, and immigration reform. Democrats are playing a losing hand.
