Some prominent ‘Dreamers’ are beginning to rethink their relationship with the Democratic Party, with one leading DACA recipient thanking President Trump for his “leadership” on the issue while accusing Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer of treating the young immigrants as political “pawns.”
Hilario Yanez was speaking with Fox News on Monday when he called-out the Democratic leadership over their refusal to work with President Trump in passing permanent DACA reform, saying the liberal legislators have “no clear message” on how they plan to tackle serious immigration problems facing the nation.
“Let me begin by first thanking Donald Trump for his leadership, his compassion, and also the courage to take on this issue […] I believe we need to have border security,’ said Yanez.
“The Democratic leadership: Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer have no clear message. We have been confused and at the end of the day, I think they’ve been using us as pawns,” he added. “They never should have shut down the government over DACA. We should never have held our American people and our military hostage. There is plenty of time on the table to fix this; March 5th is the deadline.”
