“Sh*thole” Lie Peddler Dick Durbin: Amensty Is “Civil Rights Issue of Our Time”

I really am struggling to understand how a man that claims to uphold the Constitution, and immigration laws that were enacted by Congress, can stand with a straight face and say that those who are violating the law and should not be prosecuted or deported is somehow a “civil rights issue.”

Still, Senator Dick Durbin, the man behind the lie about President Donald Trump’s alleged “sh*thole countries” comment, says that giving amnesty to those who illegally came to the US is a “civil rights issue of our time.”

Unless I’m mistaken, it’s not a right to break the law, is it?

Just prior to a vote to break the filibuster and reopen the federal government, Democratic Whip Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) said that amnesty for illegal aliens under the unconstitutional executive action DACA program (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) is “the civil rights issue of our time.”

“So many of you cast a vote that was very hard and very difficult, because you believed as I did that the issue of immigration, the issue of the Dreamers is the civil rights issue of our time. You stuck your necks out and said I’m willing to go on record even if it’s going to be hard to explain back home, and I will never forget that,” Durbin said prior to the vote.

He claims the in the past few days, he has witnessed “constructive bipartisan conversations and dialogue on the floor … about the future of this institution and what the Senate will be from this point forward.”

“I cannot tell my colleagues how many have come up to me from the other side of the aisle and said, ‘We’re with you on this issue. We want to help you get this done,’” he added.  “Each of them has a little different take on what that means, but I do believe them, and I do believe we have this opportunity to move together.”

“My last word is this: we have gathered the largest bipartisan group of senators to ever commit to moving forward on the Dream Act and immigration,” he said.  “We have a process. I want to thank Senator McConnell for explicitly saying today, it will be a level playing field. It will be open to both sides. We will move to the issue as you characterized it this morning of DACA and immigration. Thank you for doing that. I believe that that sets the stage for us to work together.”

This blah, blah, blah about leveling the playing field always comes up, but how does this level the playing field for those who came here through the legal process?  How is it leveling the playing field for American citizens who were born here Senator Durbin?  How is providing foreigners who break the law in numerous ways upon stepping foot into the country and then receiving welfare benefits level the playing field?

Simple.  It doesn’t.

“For the first time in five years, we will have a debate on the floor of the Senate on the Dream Act and immigration. To all the Dreamers who are watching today, don’t give up,” said Durbin, encouraging those who stand in violation of US immigration law and demand that America bend to their whims rather than America enforce her own laws.

Durbin was much like Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY), who pontificated to browbeat those who opposed him and seek to defend illegal aliens over protecting American citizens.

Schumer said:

“The reason why the Republican majority had such difficulty finding consensus is they could never get a firm grip on what the president of their party wanted to do. These days you never know who to deal with when it comes to the Republicans. The Republican leaders told me to work out a deal with the White House. The White House said work it out with Republican leaders on the hill.”

“Separately, President Trump turned away from not one, but two bipartisan compromises. Each would have averted this shutdown. Each would have led to a deal on the budget and health care and disaster aid and things like opioids and veterans and pensions and on immigration.”

“My recent offer to the president was a generous one. I put his signature issue on the table in exchange for DACA, and still he turned away. President Trump’s unwillingness to compromise caused the Trump shutdown and brought us to this moment. The facts are well known.”

Chuck Schumer owns the shutdown.  Personally, I don’t care if it stays shutdown, as long as they are not backpaid.  All we are really getting rid of at this point is a high percentage of non-military people in government which are considered “non-essential.”  We should be eliminating that permanently anyways.  After all, they are non-essential!

On Saturday, President Donald Trump took to his bullhorn, Twitter, in order to rake the Democrats over the coals about their pursuits.

“Democrats are far more concerned with Illegal Immigrants than they are with our great Military or Safety at our dangerous Southern Border. They could have easily made a deal but decided to play Shutdown politics instead. in order to power through mess!” he tweeted.

He added, “Democrats are holding our Military hostage over their desire to have unchecked illegal immigration. Can’t let that happen!”

“Great to see how hard Republicans are fighting for our Military and Safety at the Border. The Dems just want illegal immigrants to pour into our nation unchecked. If stalemate continues, Republicans should go to 51% (Nuclear Option) and vote on real, long term budget, no C.R.’s!” Trump continued.

I agree, they should change the rules in the same manner that they were changed on them under Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah.

He then talked about certain “services” that were being turned down.

“The Democrats are turning down services and security for citizens in favor of services and security for non-citizens. Not good!” Trump tweeted.

“Democrats have shut down our government in the interests of their far left base. They don’t want to do it but are powerless!” he added.

The vote for cloture was 81 to 18 and brought about the shutdown.

Trump has called for an end to the obstruction of the Democrats.

Well, Sir, get with the Republican leadership, change those rules and ram through your agenda!  Let’s end Republican and Democrat obstruction and build the wall you promised and not compromise on immigration law.  Should be pretty simple, right?  But no, we have people who claim to believe one thing and do another.

That really is the problem here.  Dick Durbin and Chuck Schumer are sticking to their guns.  Why won’t Republicans bring a full-on frontal assault to deliver what was promised to the American people?

Watch the Senate from Monday here.
