Democrats Threaten Government Shutdown If They Don’t Get Amnesty – Voters Don’t Approve

Democrats are trying to use the threat of a government shut down to get their way on amnesty for illegal immigrants. They are once again, putting the interests of illegal immigrants ahead of American citizens.

Breitbart reports:

Voters Reject by 2:1 Democrats’ Amnesty-or-Shutdown Threat

Voters overwhelmingly oppose the Democrats’ threat to shut down the government unless the GOP provides an amnesty to roughly 3 million illegals, according to a new poll by Rasmussen.

“Just 27% agree with Senate Minority Whip [Sen.] Dick Durbin’s call for a government shutdown to force a congressional decision on the Dreamers question separate from the border security issue,” said Rasmussen Reports. “Twice as many (55%) oppose a government shutdown for this reason. Seventeen percent (17%) are undecided.”

The shutdown threat is backed by only 26 percent of blacks, 35 percent of Democrats, 21 percent of moderates, 37 percent of people who earn more than $200,000, 23 percent of post-graduates, and 31 percent of people who strongly disapprove of President Donald Trump’s policies.

But the shutdown threat is opposed by 58 percent of blacks, 49 percent of Democrats, 42 percent of liberals, and 63 percent of people who earn from $30,000 to $63,000.

Whose side are Democrats on? That is a rhetorical question. They have made their priorities quite clear. They just aren’t interested in putting the American people first.
