FLASHBACK: Chuck Schumer Wanted To Stop Refugee Settlement In The US in 2015

Remember that time when Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer thought about banning refugees? Breitbart reported:“the context was the Bataclan massacre in Paris, in which nearly 100 people were killed and 200 wounded. One of the terrorists responsible allegedly entered Europe amidst the Syrian refugee wave, carrying a forged Syrian passport.”

From The Hill:

Sen. Charles Schumer (N.Y.), the third ranking member of the Senate Democratic leadership, on Tuesday said it may be necessary to halt the resettlement of Syrian refugees in the United States.

Republicans immediately seized on Schumer’s comment, which breaks with other Democrats who have argued against halting the program.

Schumer, however, declined to take the option off the table ahead of a special briefing scheduled for Wednesday afternoon on the process that is now used to vet refugees entering the United States.

“We’re waiting for the briefing tomorrow, a pause may be necessary. We’re going to look at it,” he said…

…A spokeswoman for Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) highlighted Schumer’s statement as an example of “bipartisan concern” over refugees.

This is just another example of hypocrisy from liberal Democrats who say one thing and then do something completely different.
