“If he won’t let us dream, we won’t let him sleep!”
The chant that rose up in both Spanish and English in front of Sen. Chuck Schumer’s personal residence in New York City can’t have been music to his ears as disappointed “Dreamers” turned on their former advocate with a vengeance.
Schumer, who had thought to be the hero for the illegal alien group, turned to villain after he caved in to pressure and signed off on a Continuing Resolution to fund the government until February 8 without including provisions for a “Clean Dreamers Act.”
‘Dreamers’ Storm Chuck Schumer’s Home in NY

The Senate Minority Leader overplayed his hand when he forced a shutdown of the federal government rather than agreed to a spending bill that did not make provisions for the group.
The shutdown impacted military families who would be without a paycheck, as well as requiring non-essential federal employees to be furloughed.
When President Trump stood firm and public opinion polls showed Americans not only blamed the Democrats for the shutdown but did not support a “Dreamer” bill, Schumer hurriedly instructed his side of the aisle to accept the Republican offer that would re-open the government until February 8.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky agreed to “consider” a dreamer bill as a concession.
The Dreamers – dubbed that by President Obama when he granted some 800,000 illegals who were brought to the United States by their parents as minors temporary protection from deportation– let Schumer have a taste of their outrage by showing up at his home.
“We want a Clean Dream Act,” the crowd chanted.
“When do we want it?” they chanted.
“Now!” they chanted.
The group not only represents those protected by Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) order but more than 3.5 million illegal aliens, is demanding amnesty from deportation and a clear pathway to full citizenship.
Senator Schumer can look forward to a lot of sleepless nights if his former friends and supporters get their way.
“We are planning on being relentless in our pressure for the next two weeks,” said Walter Barrientos, spokesman for the group that sponsored the protest at Schumer’s home.
“We can’t allow him to fail us again.”
Do you think illegal alien groups should receive amnesty and a pathway to full citizenship as part of a funding bill passed by Congress in the next three weeks?
