Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) with some Muslims
We need to give Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) a tissue. He was flanked by new Muslim refugees on Sunday and he was weeping. He stated that Donald Trump's executive order to ban certain Muslim refugees from seven terrorist countries such as Iraq, Syria, Iran, Somalia, etc. was mean-spirited and un-American. Schumer was making the comparison of the newly arrived refugees to those who immigrated to those country over a century ago and came to Ellis Island in New York.
Schumer stated that his middle name was Ellis which refers to his Uncle Ellis named after Ellis Island. He stated that his daughter's name was Emma referring to the poet Emma Lazarus who wrote the famous lines found on the Statute of Liberty. Trump rightly called out Schumer on this and stated that it was fake tears. Right on. Trump asked where were the Democrats' tears when millions of jobs left this country over 20+ years ago because of NAFTA. Good point.
Chuck Schumer's analysis was absolutely ridiculous. Is it fair to the families who lost loved ones due to shootings and terrorist plots by Jihadists to have to endure Muslim refugees being brought to this country? How many of those Muslim refugees are members of ISIS? Good question.
