Surprise: Liberal Activists Want The Government Shut Down If Dreamers Aren’t Protected

If a government shutdown does occur, President Trump should make sure to erect Barrycades around things that Democrats really love

(NY Times) Liberal activists, eager for Democrats to assert what power they have left in Congress, are pressing Democratic leaders to shut down the government this Christmas if Republicans do not agree to shield young undocumented immigrants from deportation.

But moderate Democrats fear the political blowback of a holiday crisis, and equivocal statements by top Democratic leaders are giving the left reason to believe that the party will lend enough votes to keep the government open past Dec. 22, when the current spending bill is set to expire.

That has turned part of the liberal “resistance” — honed in the Trump era to target Republicans — against Democratic leaders.

A bit of Blue On Blue carpetbombing.

“People are actually losing their protection from deportation, losing their ability to work, losing their ability to support their families,” said Nayim Islam, an immigrant rights organizer for Desis Rising Up & Moving, a group seeking broad legislation that protects young immigrants, called the Dream Act. “The reality of what a government shutdown would mean for certain folks and their means of income or for jobs, that is already a reality for a lot of undocumented immigrants.”

So, hardcore Leftists want Americans who are legally here to be suffer just like those who are in the country in contradiction to the law.

Erika Andiola, 30, an undocumented immigrant who is organizing protests in Washington, said she was tired of Democrats using immigration to “pander” to communities without following through.

Erika, that’s all the do. And you blindly follow along.

    “Undocumented immigrant”. Even if documented, they’d still be illegal.

    • Dana says:

      ‘Undocumented’ is the left’s response to ‘What part of illegal don’t you understand?’

        The left has no cogent argument for their retarded fever dream of marxism, so they change the language to (wrongly) redefine words to associate their idiocy with diametrically opposing philosophies. The average Joe figured out that progressives were eugenics happy fascist racist asshats, so they called themselves “liberals” (the name of their opposition). The average Joe figured out the the “liberals” were eugenics happy (Planned Parenthood forever!!!!) fascist racist asshats so they started calling themselves progressives again. The whole “Republicans and Democrats switched sides” lie pretty much sums it up – they know that they cannot argue their position, and we know that they are morally bankrupt scum. The 30’s Progs inspired the Nazi’s with their “success” implementing eugenic programs in the US, but the Progs have murdered more innocents with their eugenics than the Nazis ever managed. In short, the Progs are more Nazi than the Nazis ever managed, which is why the Progs have labelled the classical liberals Nazis since the 50’s.
