Chuck Schumer strode out onto the Senate floor and claimed Donald Trump was weakening on amnesty.

He gloated over an impending victory.

But just hours later, Mike Pence gave an interview that sent Schumer running for the hills.

Breitbart reports:

“Democratic Senate leader Chuck Schumer claimed January 10 that President Donald Trump is weakening on immigration reform and then threatened a 2018 government shutdown unless a DACA amnesty is added to the funding bill.

“A resolution of the DACA issue must be part of a global deal on the [2018 government] budget, we cannot wait, we cannot tolerate delay,” he said January 10, without formally threatening to block the budget if he does not get the huge and costly DREAMAct amnesty for 3.25 million illegals.

Schumer used his speech to suggest that Trump is backing off his popular immigration priorities. Trump, said Schumer:

appeared [on Tuesday] to endorse a narrow deal to protect the dreamers, leaving the thornier issues for a debate on comprehensive immigration reform …  

Of course, the devil is in the details, but we Democrats have repeated time and time again that we’re ready, willing and eager to support effective, practical border security measures in a deal that enshrines DACA into law. The president yesterday seemed to agree with that.

Schumer claimed Trump made his concessions are the White House meeting on immigration, even though Trump used the meeting to show broad GOP support for his policy of building a border wall, ending chain migration and ending the visa lottery.”

This wasn’t true.

Mike Pence gave an interview on Fox News and said that the wall must be part of any DACA deal.

Breitbart reports:

“Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “The Story,” Vice President Mike Pence told host Martha MacCallum there was “no deal on DACA without a wall” on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Pence said, “I think the president’s been very clear. There’s no deal on DACA without a wall.”

He added, “Not only without a wall, Martha. But also without ending the visa lottery program and ending the kind of chain migration that has resulted in people coming to this country that have done harm to Americans in recent months.”

To twist the knife even further into Schumer, the White House endorsed legislation introduced in the House that includes mandatory e-verify, an end to chain migration, halting the diversity lottery, and funding for the border wall.

This is the type of pro-American immigration reform package Trump campaigned and won on.
