    Live Updates – Schumer Amnesty Shutdown: Washington on Edge as Cliff Approaches

    Live Updates – Schumer Amnesty Shutdown: Washington on Edge as Cliff Approaches


    Washington, D.C., is on edge this Friday as Senate Democrats barrel the United States of America toward a government shutdown at midnight.

    The House of Representatives, on a bipartisan basis, passed a bill that keeps the government open with 230 votes–and now its fate rests in the hands of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and his Senate Democratic conference, who would be solely responsible for a government shutdown if it happens. The Senate overwhelmingly on Thursday evening voted for a motion to proceed onto the bill, but now the funding measure needs 60 Senators to vote for it to eventually pass. Since only 47 Republicans are definitely yea votes, that means Republicans need at least 13 Senate Democrats to vote to fund the government.



    The Democrats are pushing for this shutdown because they are hellbent on getting amnesty for a significant population of illegal aliens who were recipients of the unlawful Barack Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) executive amnesty program. The White House and congressional Republicans have been more than willing to offer a deal and proposal to handle this problem, but the Democrats have been unwilling to give up chain migration, the visa lottery, and funding for President Trump’s planned border wall.
    Breitbart News will bring live updates here as the country barrels over the shutdown cliff.



    UPDATE 12:05 P.M.
    Senate President Pro Tempore Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) is blasting the politicians in Washington for their failures here.

    UPDATE 12:03 P.M.
    On the Senate floor moments ago, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that Senate Democrats would “own” any shutdown “craziness” that happens as a result of their unwillingness to vote for a bipartisan bill that contains nothing they oppose.


    UPDATE 12:00 P.M.
    Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Dick Durbin (D-IL) demonstrate their true allegiances with this made-for-MSNBC television moment:

    Meanwhile, Graham is bashing White House aide Stephen Miller–and undercutting President Trump and the Republican Party on this matter.
    Just interviews @LindseyGrahamSC – says up to POTUS to decide what he wants in an immigration deal & stick with it. He won’t vote for 30 day CR. Dinged @TomCottonAR as “Steve King of the Senate.” Stay tuned to @MSNBC
    — Garrett Haake (@GarrettHaake) January 19, 2018
    “The Stephen Miller approach to immigration has no viability.”
    — Garrett Haake (@GarrettHaake) January 19, 2018

    UPDATE 11:56 A.M.
    CNN is reporting, citing a government official, that President Trump has canceled his planned trip to Florida this weekend as a government shutdown is looming. Meanwhile, CNN also reports, members of the House of Representatives are being told to stay in Washington for the time being rather than leave as planned for the weekend scheduled recess.


    UPDATE 11:51 A.M.
    Our senior White House correspondent for Breitbart News Charlie Spiering files this update from Mulvaney’s and Short’s White House briefing room appearance:

    “OMB is preparing for what we’re calling a Schumer Shutdown,” OMB Director Mick Mulvaney told reporters at the White House. “It still surprises me and I’ve been through some of these before, that the Democrats in the Senate are opposing a bill that they don’t oppose.”

    Mulvaney ridiculed reporters during a briefing for suggesting that Republicans would be held accountable for a government shutdown just because they controlled all three branches of the federal government.

    “I have to laugh when people say that … you know any as well as anybody it takes 60 votes in the senate to pass appropriations bill. You know that,” he said.
    Mulvaney said that members of the military, the border patrol, wildfire fighters, post office, TSA, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and the national parks would still go to work, but that they would not be paid, if the government did shut down.

    He also said that President Donald Trump would continue to work to prevent a shutdown.
    “There’s no way you can lay this at the feet of the President of the United States; he is actively working to make a deal,” he said.

    UPDATE 11:48 A.M.

    Nancy Pelosi, the House Minority Leader, is desperately spinning away as her party jeopardizes its midterm election chances with a Schumer Shutdown. She is now claiming that Republicans only want to head to Davos:
    Pelosi says House is adjourning to go to Davos. pic.twitter.com/e5R5kgFfNN
    — Jake Sherman (@JakeSherman) January 19, 2018
    But last night she accused everyone who voted for the bill of eating dog feces:
    NASTY NANCY: Pelosi Compares GOP Debt Deal with EATING DOG FECES

    — Breitbart News (@BreitbartNews) January 19, 2018

    Interestingly, Pelosi–by accusing those who support the House-passed Continuing Resolution that would keep the government open of eating canine fecal matter–is attacking six of her own House Democrats who voted for the legislation.


    The six Democrats who joined most Republicans in supporting the bill that passed the House with 230 votes are now under attack by Pelosi:

    Updated figure. 6 Hse Dems votes yes on interim spending bill. Dems didn't put up any yeas on the board until the GOPers hit 220. Dem yeas: Costa Carbajal Gonzalez Peterson Gottheimer Cuellar
    — Chad Pergram (@ChadPergram) January 19, 2018

    So, Schumer and his Senate Democrat conference face an interesting choice: Stand with bipartisan legislation that passed the House to keep the government open, and their constituents, or stand with special interests in Washington against the voters of their own states.


    UPDATE 11:41 A.M.
    President Trump is calling out Senate Democrats–particularly Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA)–for their hypocrisy on this matter.
    “Shutting down the government is a very serious thing. People die, accidents happen. I don’t know how I would vote right now on a CR, OK?”
    Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif)https://t.co/7xP3CBnv5j
    — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 19, 2018

    UPDATE 11:40 A.M.

    OMB Director Mick Mulvaney and White House official Marc Short addressed the media from the White House briefing room.

    OMB Director Mick Mulvaney:

    "The president is actively working right now to try to prevent a shutdown. I will contend to you that is dramatically different from what President Obama was doing it 2013…It is absolutely my belief that President Obama wanted a shutdown in 2013." pic.twitter.com/Euvxsx85RN
    — NBC Politics (@NBCPolitics) January 19, 2018
    "There's no reason you have to deal with DACA this week," Mick Mulvaney says https://t.co/lCJsliOyLR pic.twitter.com/FHe0iTCTXx
    — CBS News (@CBSNews) January 19, 2018
    Director of the Office of Management and Budget Mick Mulvaney:
    "We don't want this. We do not want a shutdown, but if Mr. Schumer insists on it he is in a position to force this on the American people." pic.twitter.com/z8JkPhaydi
    — NBC Politics (@NBCPolitics) January 19, 2018

    In his comments to the press, particularly in an exchange with CNN’s Jim Acosta, Mulvaney made it very clear that Schumer and Senate Democrats have the votes to prevent a government shutdown from happening. If the Senate Democrats vote for the House-passed bill, which contains nothing they oppose, they will be able to prevent Schumer’s shutdown from happening.

    UPDATE 1:01 P.M.

    Everything is on the line right now as Trump moves forward on this meeting with Schumer.

    Am told that the meeting with the president is supposed to be just @realDonaldTrump and @SenSchumer — a one-on-one between the two of them.
    — Michael D. Shear (@shearm) January 19, 2018
    If that holds, such a meeting is likely to cause conservatives to pull their hair out, worrying about what @realDonaldTrump might agree to at this very high-stakes moment for both parties.
    — Michael D. Shear (@shearm) January 19, 2018
    Pictures show that @SenSchumer is already in the Oval Office with @realDonaldTrump. (with Marc Short, the president's legislative director, there too.) The balance of this day will be shaped by what happens in the next hour or so.
    — Michael D. Shear (@shearm) January 19, 2018
    One big question: Will @realDonaldTrump have Stephen Miller, his hard-line immigration / domestic policy adviser, and his chief of staff, John Kelly, in the Oval with @SenSchumer? They usually bolster POTUS's hard-line tendencies.
    — Michael D. Shear (@shearm) January 19, 2018
    Also — with there be more "tough" language in the Oval today? If so, that could derail any deal that might otherwise emerge.
    — Michael D. Shear (@shearm) January 19, 2018

    UPDATE 12:57 P.M.

    President Trump is risking a lot with this Schumer meeting, and House Republicans are very worried they will “get hosed” per a report from Politico’s Jake Sherman.
    There is very serious concern rippling through the House Republican Conference that they are about to get hosed by the president and Chuck Schumer.
    — Jake Sherman (@JakeSherman) January 19, 2018

    UPDATE 12:54 P.M.

    CNN’s John King reports that Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell, the majority leader, is not invited to Schumer’s White House meeting with President Trump that is about to begin.

    UPDATE 12:53 P.M.

    Back in 2013, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) called senators who voted to shut down the government “dysfunctional deadbeats.”

    Now, she faces a choice as the Senate prepares voting for cloture on the House-passed spending bill, whether she wants to vote for what she considers is a “dysfunctional deadbeat” position as she faces reelection this year.


    UPDATE 12:49 P.M.

    Schumer has arrived at the White House. It remains to be seen what deal is being discussed if any or if congressional Republicans will join Schumer and Trump in these negotiations.
    JUST IN: Schumer has arrived at the White House for talks with President Trump.

    UPDATE 12:42 P.M.

    An update from House Speaker Paul Ryan’s office, as the Speaker appeared on Fox News to discuss the Schumer Shutdown that looms.

    A key quote as highlighted by the Speaker’s office is as follows:
    “This is absolutely needless, completely unnecessary, and wholly because of Senate Democrats trying to shut down the government, holding the entire government hostage for a completely unrelated issue that doesn’t have a deadline right now. . . . If we have a government shutdown, that the Democrats insist on, troops don’t get paid, they’re holding our military hostage. Children’s health insurance dries up, seven states run out of money for their children’s health insurance. The Medical Device Tax kicks in so anybody getting a medical procedure that involves a device will pay a whole lot more for that procedure. Those are things that will happen if the Senate Democrats continue to insist on shutting down the government. . . .Senator Schumer said this very tactic, this very strategy a few years ago, was governmental chaos. Nancy Pelosi called it legislative arson. This is exactly what they’re doing and it is completely unnecessary to hold the government hostage for something unrelated. And by way, those DACA negotiations are underway right now. There are good faith bipartisan negotiations underway on DACA right now that have been occurring for some time and that deadline is not until March. So what they’re simply trying to do is hold all of government hostage, our troops, kids’ health insurance, for a completely unrelated issue. I think it’s shameful.”


    UPDATE 12:35 P.M.

    More from Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) interview on MSNBC. He takes the radical leftist worldview, far outside the mainstream and more in line with the Democratic Party, that Stephen Miller is somehow to blame for the Democrats’ intransigence on DACA.
    It’s worth noting that President Trump and House GOP leaders, as well as several GOP senators including Sens. Tom Cotton (R-AR) and David Perdue (R-GA), support the position that in exchange for a legislative amnesty for DACA recipients there must be an end to chain migration altogether, an end to the visa lottery, and funding for the border wall on the U.S. border with Mexico. That principle is encapsulated in legislation offered by House Judiciary Committee chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) and House Homeland Security Committee chairman Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX). That bill is supported by House Speaker Paul Ryan and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who intend to hold a House vote on the bill and whip support for it. So, in other words, Graham’s extremist position on immigration is so more in line with the Democrats pushing for a government shutdown if they don’t get their way on amnesty for illegal aliens, even though there is absolutely nothing in the House-passed bipartisan spending bill–which 6 Democrats and 224 Republicans backed–that Democrats oppose.


    UPDATE 12:29 P.M.

    The Department of Homeland Security said that if a government shutdown happens thanks to Schumer’s and his Senate Democrats’ intransigence, the government is prepared to protect the homeland.
    Most of DHS personnel–about 90 percent–are considered “essential staff” in the event of a shutdown.


    UPDATE 12:25 P.M.

    Chuck Schumer is facing serious criticism for previously, back in 2013, saying that it would be “governmental chaos” for doing exactly what he is doing now.

    Schumer, in a 2013 interview with George Stephanopoulos, said this:
    Speaker [John] Boehner comes in and he says basically… it’s sort of like this: Someone goes into your house, takes your wife and children hostage and then says ‘Let’s negotiate over the price of your house.’

    You know we could do the same thing on immigration. We believe strongly in immigration reform. We could say ‘We’re shutting down the government. We’re not going to raise the debt ceiling until you pass immigration reform.’ It would be governmental chaos.

    But, as our own John Binder notes in a piece just published on Breitbart News, that is exactly what Schumer is doing right now:

    The plan to shut down the federal government unless illegal aliens are given amnesty, though, is now being championed by Schumer and Democrats, who say they want to see the nearly 800,000 illegal aliens shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program given amnesty to remain permanently in the U.S. in exchange for their support on a government funding bill.
    In an expansive amnesty plan that the Republican establishment and Democrats want to see passed, some 3.5 million illegal aliens who are enrolled and eligible for DACA would be granted amnesty, as well as their parents who brought them to the U.S. illegally.

    ‘It Would Be Governmental Chaos:’ Schumer in 2013 Mocked Shutting Down Govt Over Amnesty for Illegal Aliens




    John Binder

    January 19, 2018


    During an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, Schumer mocked the idea that Democrats would ever try to shut down the federal government unless millions of illegal aliens were given amnesty.

    SCHUMER: Speaker [John] Boehner comes in and he says basically… it’s sort of like this: Someone goes into your house, takes your wife and children hostage and then says ‘Let’s negotiate over the price of your house.’


    You know we could do the same thing on immigration. We believe strongly in immigration reform. We could say ‘We’re shutting down the government. We’re not going to raise the debt ceiling until you pass immigration reform.’ It would be governmental chaos. [Emphasis added]

    The plan to shut down the federal government unless illegal aliens are given amnesty, though, is now being championed by Schumer and Democrats, who say they want to see the nearly 800,000 illegal aliens shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program given amnesty to remain permanently in the U.S. in exchange for their support on a government funding bill.
    In an expansive amnesty plan that the Republican establishment and Democrats want to see passed, some 3.5 million illegal aliens who are enrolled and eligible for DACA would be granted amnesty, as well as their parents who brought them to the U.S. illegally.


    Additionally, the plan by Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO), Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL), Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO), and Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) would:



    • Make no cuts to legal immigration levels, whereby more than one million legal immigrants enter the U.S. every year
    • Transfers the 50,000 visas through the Diversity Visa Lottery into two other visa categories
    • Does not fund the estimated $18 billion U.S.-Mexico border wall
    • Does not mandate E-Verify to bar employers from hiring illegal aliens over American workers



    As Breitbart News reported, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen have slammed the amnesty plan as “totally unjustifiable,” while populist conservative Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) said the amnesty should be thrown “straight into the trash can,” as Breitbart News reported.

    UPDATE 1:52 P.M.


    A White House aide tells Breitbart News senior White House correspondent Charlie Spiering that conservatives should not worry about Trump’s meeting with Schumer one bit. “Conservatives should be reassured that the president is a strong negotiator and committed to conservative principles,” the White House aide tells Spiering.


    UPDATE 1:50 P.M.


    Trump and Schumer are not in the room together alone. Both of their chiefs of staff are there with them, per Politico’s Eliana Johnson:


    Oval Office meeting is with Trump, Schumer, and both of their chiefs. Nobody else.


    — Eliana Johnson (@elianayjohnson) January 19, 2018


    UPDATE 1:48 P.M.


    Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) is under fire in Wisconsin as a vote looms in the Senate for cloture on the government funding bill. If she votes to shut down the government, expect Republicans to seize the opportunity in a state that’s been trending rightward in recent years. Kevin Nicholson, the leading GOP senatorial candidate in Wisconsin, is already hammering Baldwin for even considering voting for a shutdown.


    .@tammybaldwin needs to keep her past promises to put the people of Wisconsin first, keep the federal government open, pay our military, and extend CHIP. #shutdowntammy #wisen https://t.co/abYV7qwJ2O


    — Kevin Nicholson (@KevinMNicholson) January 19, 2018


    .@TammyBaldwin in 2015: “ Federal workers, veterans … do their job and we have a responsibility to do ours by keeping the government open for business.” #wisen #shutdowntammy https://t.co/ClAWRUJ1ixhttps://t.co/DD7mkW8lxp


    — Kevin Nicholson (@KevinMNicholson) January 19, 2018


    UPDATE 1:30 P.M.


    Schumer’s shutdown ploy is already severely hurting members of his Senate Democratic conference. McCaskill, for instance, is coming under serious fire in Missouri as her likely general election opponent Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley fires away at her refusal to back government funding measures.


    With a #SchumerShutdown looming, Missouri is wondering if @clairecmc will get involved – or watch from the sidelines and comment later? She shouldn’t be putting our military, CHIP funding at risk. #mosen


    — Josh Hawley (@HawleyMO) January 19, 2018


    UPDATE 1:22 P.M.


    President Trump’s campaign, as Trump meets with Schumer, is still bashing Schumer for the looming shutdown.

    Also, interesting flashback from ABC’s Jon Karl when Schumer appeared on The Apprentice to praise Trump in 2006.


    That time @chuckschumer appeared on the Apprentice and said of @realDonaldTrump "Even when he was much younger you knew that he was gonna go places.” (h/t @chrisdonovan). https://t.co/fjHHfnc8Hi


    — Jonathan Karl (@jonkarl) January 19, 2018


    UPDATE 1:18 P.M.


    If Trump agrees to something that does not have support from Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), the chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, and Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), in this meeting with Schumer, he will be betraying a promise he made at the beginning of this process.


    Freedom Caucus Chair Mark Meadows told reporters President Trump committed to him that he wouldn't back an immigration bill unless he & Sen Tom Cotton backed it.
    Asked about Schumer saying Cotton can't be involved: "I don’t really care what Chuck Schumer says."


    — Deirdre Walsh (@deirdrewalshcnn) January 19, 2018


    Meadows notes that Schumer’s opinion is essentially irrelevant.


    UPDATE 1:16 P.M.


    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) again demonstrates his allegiance is to the Democrats as he encourages Trump to cave in the Schumer meeting:


    Glad to see @POTUS @realDonaldTrump and Sen. Schumer sitting down and talking. This is welcome news to American people, military, DACA recipients.


    Let’s see if two New Yorkers can agree on a deal good for USA.


    I believe – in America – anything is still possible.


    — Lindsey Graham (@LindseyGrahamSC) January 19, 2018


    UPDATE 1:15 P.M.


    Reports are emerging that Trump and Schumer spoke via phone earlier, when Trump invited Schumer to the White House.


    Trump/Schumer chat was positive and friendly, per two people briefed. Between 10 and 11 AM. Trump said come on over.


    — Josh Dawsey (@jdawsey1) January 19, 2018


    There are worries Trump will cave in the meeting with Schumer.


    No Pelosi, no McConnell, no Ryan, no Cotton, no Durbin. Just Trump and Schumer. New York talk.

    (Pray for the President and others)

    UPDATE 2:18 P.M.


    KellyAnne Conway says that the only two Republicans in the meeting with Schumer at the White House are Donald Trump and John Kelly.

    Just asked Kellyanne Conway who exactly is in the Oval Office meeting now with Trump and Schumer. She said “it’s a very small group.” I asked if there are any Republicans (meaning Hill leaders) and she said “Donald Trump and John Kelly. They are Republicans.”
