OPED: Varney: Dems Shame Themselves Supporting Illegals Over Americans During Shut Down

Yes, it is the "Schumer Shutdown.

The senator made the political calculation that it would be blamed on the Republicans. He thought a shutdown now would help Democrats in November. And he wanted to distract the country from President Trump's obvious successes with tax cuts, the economy and the stock market's $8 trillion rally. And, he wanted to spoil the president's first anniversary in office. The Schumer Shutdown. Pure politics.

And wrong. Three days in, and its not going Sen. Schumer's way. The Republicans are not getting the blame. The public is not being seriously inconvenienced. The stock market is shrugging it off.

Instead, we the people are seeing the light: Sen. Schumer is shutting down the legal government of the United States, in the interests of illegal immigrants. Go back just a couple of years, and Bill and Hillary Clinton and Chuck, all wanted to stem the tide of illegals. Now, a 180 ... They'll shut the government to support illegals.
