White House: ‘Schumer Democrats’ Obstruct Vote On Immigration For Political Reasons

The White House is blasting Senate Democrats over their obstruction of immigration reform.
In a statement released Thursday night, the Trump administration said radical-left “Schumer Democrats” are not serious about finding a solution to DACA, immigration reform, and homeland security.

The Grassley immigration bill, backed by President Trump, failed in the Senate earlier that day — receiving only 39 votes.
The White House also said “Schumer Democrats” oppose any immigration control for political reasons.
This comes after Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer attacked President Trump on the Senate floor.
“There’s only one reason why the Senate will be unable to reach a bipartisan solution to DACA — President Trump,” Schumer claimed. “President Trump has failed this test of leadership spectacularly — I urge a no vote.”
The White House stressed the next step is for House lawmakers to advance the Goodlatte-McCaul immigration bill.
