Tom Cotton: ‘Let’s See How’ Shutting Down Government Over DACA Amnesty ‘Works Out for’ Democrats


Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) hinted that a shutdown of the federal government by Democrats unless they are given an expansive amnesty for potentially millions of illegal aliens would not “work out” well for Democrat Senators and Congressman trying to get re-elected this year.

Following Senate Democrats’ near end to discussions with President Trump’s administration on the issue of immigration, Cotton says some Democrats are now threatening to shut down the federal government unless nearly 800,000 illegal aliens shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program are given amnesty.
