CHUCK SCHUMER IN 2015: “Refugee Pause Maybe Necessary”

Cryin’ Chuck Schumer attacks the idea of stopping immigration from countries that are linked to terrorism but he didn’t always have that stance…

The Hill reported:

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…

Other Democrats have rejected freezing Obama’s plan to resettle at least 10,000 Syrian refugees in the current fiscal year.

If Trump came out and suddenly agreed with Democrats on all issues they would immediately adopt Conservative policies just to oppose him.
