Chuck Schumer was expecting to have the political winds at his back in 2018.

But a shocking defeat at the hands of Donald Trump may have dashed those dreams.

And one closed door meeting was really bad news for Schumer.

Democrats were furious that Schumer backed down from Donald Trump on amnesty.

Schumer and other Democrats had beaten their chests about how Trump was going to be forced to accept amnesty for the so-called “DREAMers” as part of the year-end funding bill.

But Trump held the line and Democrats were forced to retreat.

Now Senators are trying to negotiate a January bill, but there is no guarantee Trump will sign it, or that the Republican House will even take it up.

That led to a closed-door meeting between Schumer and the Congressional Hispanic Caucus where Latino lawmakers berated Schumer for letting Trump outfox him.

The Washington Post reports:

“Several people who attended the meeting, granted anonymity to describe what was expected to be a private exchange, said the meeting with Schumer began with cordial remarks by Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D-N.M.), who chairs the Hispanic Caucus.

But Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.) — arguably the most outspoken Democrat on immigration matters — spoke next and unloaded on Schumer, accusing him and Democratic senators of not caring about the fate of dreamers and “throwing them under the bus” in the ongoing spending debate with Republicans, participants said.

In response, Schumer raised his voice, telling Gutiérrez not to insult fellow Democrats.

Gutiérrez shot back, telling Schumer, “Don’t raise your voice.”

Most of the other 16 members of the caucus in the meeting respectfully, if sternly, shared their concerns, the participants said. But a few other caucus members made pointed comments toward Schumer.

Rep. Tony Cárdenas (D-Calif.), who represents parts of Los Angeles and oversees the PAC that helps bankroll the campaigns of Latino congressional candidates, told Schumer that Latino lawmakers expect “no more mañanas” — no more “tomorrows” — when it comes to immigration.

Another member in the room explained the comment, saying: “We’ve seen more mañanas on things related to immigration from the House and Senate for more than a decade. We’re tired of it.”

But Democrats were backed into a corner.

Polls showed the American people overwhelmingly disapproved of shutting down the government over amnesty.

And Trump held firm on his campaign promises to stop amnesty.

Do you support the President in his fight to stop amnesty?
