Schumer Blinks …

On day three Chuck Schumer blinked and backed down.

He led a government shut down on a non winnable issue. Then tried to make it all about the President in hopes of winning. He failed and ends up looking bad and angering the far left of his party. No two ways to argue this one. Chuck lost.

Now What?

Well here’s our counsel to the administration. The President should go on the air and present his case. This is it:

“I always said we wanted to find a solution for these individuals who came here through no actions of their own. That is why I extended the deadline to March 5th and said weeks ago, I would again if this is not solved.

That said, no one has solved this before. I want to solve it. We have had presidents and congresses saying they really want to fix this. Well, let’s do it. I am going to call members from both sides to an open meeting so we can solve the issue. Here’s what I see.

We all want a solution and do not want people deported who have not broken the law. We are on the same side.

I said I want to solve security as part of this. If we don’t, then we have the same problem in three years. The Democrats say they want security, too. Okay, good. I think we can agree that we just need to do better than past administrations and congresses have done. They clearly failed here.

Now, we all say we want security, and in fact Senator Schumer the past few days has told everyone he agreed to funding for the full wall. So that takes the wall off the table.

We agree on DACA individuals and the wall. We should discuss other security issues, and I ask both sides to bring any additions to the table.

Then I want to discuss chain migration. My position is we must end it. I am not sure where the Democrats are on this issue. I have heard some say they agree and others not. We need to solve this.

Finally, there is the issue of future immigration. I want annual plans and merit based numbers depending on our needs. Employment and skill sets are two examples. Again, I have heard some Democrats say they prefer a lottery system.

Let’s discuss these last two issues in the open so the American people can see us, hear the arguments and witness our government at work. With the same desire for DACA individuals and agreement on the wall, let’s get on with fixing immigration so we as a country can move on and individuals can settle their lives”.

We believe this open approach would do the President much good. It will also put Chuck Schumer in a corner. He either has to agree to the wall, or say he was lying the past three days. Simple.
