Chuck Schumer Imitates Republicans, Holds Up Posters of Furloughed Government Workers
Democrat Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and other Democrats held up posters of furloughed government workers outside the Capitol Wednesday.
Republicans including Rep. Mo Brooks and Louie Gohmert have already shown photos of the victims of illegal alien crime on the House floor, including a 13-year old girl who was beheaded by an illegal alien.
Schumer’s statement ignores those victims of illegal alien crime. Now that President Trump has signed the back pay bill, the blame for the shutdown shifts to Democrats, who keep workers from getting their paychecks through their refusal to fund the southern border Wall. Schumer held up a poster of a man with a heart ailment, but did not address the Angel families who arrived at Nancy Pelosi’s office this week while Pelosi ignored them.
“Open the government,” some of the Democrats briefly chanted.
Chuck Schumer: "I want President Trump to look into these faces and see what he is doing by using these men and women as pawns, using them in an extortion game to say I am going to hurt these people unless I get my way. Mr. President." https://t.co/Onj5jFK9Nr pic.twitter.com/7MyTMWhaUF

Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) took to the floor of the House of Representatives to blast his Democratic party colleagues over their lack of interest in protecting Americans from dangerous illegal aliens.
In an epic speech, Brooks told the story of a young girl and her grandmother, killed by illegal MS-13 animals last summer in his hometown of Huntsville:
In July, 2018, in my hometown of Huntsville, Alabama, two drug cartel-related illegal aliens took Oralia Mendoza and her 13-year-old granddaughter Mariah Lopez from their home in the dark of night. Oralia was stabbed to death, while her teenaged granddaughter Mariah was forced to watch. Later, and in order to eliminate a witness, the illegal alien drug cartel members then beheaded Mariah and abandoned her body in the woods not far from where I live. Mariah’s decaying body was not found for weeks. Mariah was a special needs student at Challenger Middle School. Her teachers described her as a “sweet little girl had a lot of friends.”
After telling the story of Mendoza and Lopez, Brooks laid it on the Democrats for failing to secure the border:
Mr. Speaker, each of these horrific deaths have one thing in common. None – none of these lives would have been stolen from us but for illegal aliens, aided and abetted by Democrats who protect, promote, and prefer the lives of illegal aliens to the lives of American citizens. Mr. Speaker, these killings on American soil will continue if America does not secure our porous border. As for those who support amnesty and open borders: how many American lives and dreams must be snuffed out by illegal aliens before Washington has the guts and integrity to secure our porous Southern border? How many Americans – dead Americans – does it take before you will start saving lives, rather than aiding and abetting those illegal aliens who take them?
Brooks, who has been a strong supporter of the border wall since day one of President Donald J. Trump’s tenure in office, was visibly perturbed towards the end of his speech.
