The irony is rich.
Nevada Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto sent out an email explaining why she refused to vote to end the federal government shutdown, saying she did not trust Sen. Mitch McConnell keep his promise to allow a clean vote on DACA.
“Mitch McConnell has consistently proved that his word cannot be counted on. Every single day that he fails to keep his promises, 122 DREAMers lose their protections and face the risk of deportation. DREAMers cannot wait. … She wrote. “Instead of working together on a bipartisan budget to protect DREAMers, provide health care for low-income kids, fund our military, address the opioid epidemic and provide relief to disaster victims, Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell would rather pit Americans against one another. This is no way to govern. In fact, it’s a disgrace, and it’s amoral.”
Instead, Sen. Chuck Schumer immediately announced that his previous agreement to fund a border wall as part of the DACA deal has been rescinded.
