Pro-amnesty GOP Senators are working hand-in-glove with Democrats to block a government budget until President Donald Trump agrees to break his campaign promise and his presidency by amnestying millions of wage-lowering illegal immigrants.

Let them shut it down, then while the "non-essentials" are out, terminate them and shutter their departments.

They will say that the government shutdown is Trump's fault, but I think it will be a hard sell.

No problem. Now they OWN it. Graham just told us so. This isn’t on the “Republicans” ... Graham is a Democrat.

GOP Senators better watch out. They are siding with Bolshevik progressives.

Agree 100%!

The GOPE is trying to screw Trump on the wall, DACA, chain migration and the visa lottery.

Trump better use the veto pen to shut it down and keep it shut until he gets a clean budget or a budget with everything he promised on immigration to get elected.

This is the hill Trump needs to make his stand for the good of the country and its CITIZENS!

Darn right. Trump, the master chess player seems to always think three moves ahead of the idiot dems and to think he’s brand new to this game on the hill. He should strive to make this hurt the dems as much as possible.

They have been doing it for a long time. Probably 60 years, at least.

We have been sliding further and further into socialism for at least that long. The EPA was from Nixon.

If McConnell had a backbone, he’d remove their committee assignments.
