Activist groups were angry at how the negotiations turned out, with some calling it ‘#SchumerSellout.’

Liberal activists are furious with Democratic senators after most of them agreed to reopen the federal government without a firm path to shielding young immigrants from deportations.
“Millions of people flooded the streets of every major American city to stand up to Trump this weekend,” tweeted [KIKE] Leah Greenberg, co-executive director of the influential activist network Indivisible. “Your constituents want you to fight. How can you possibly not understand that?”
Senate Minority Leader [KIKE] Chuck Schumer on Monday argued Democrats secured critical assurance for Dreamers. “We have a way to address the fate of the Dreamers, starting right now instead of waiting until March,” [KIKE] Schumer said on the floor.
[HAJI] Murshed Zaheed, political director of the liberal group CREDO Action, said Democrats’ decision shows Schumer’s willingness to betray progressives. “Call it the #SchumerSellout,” he said in an interview.
[KIKE] Ben Wikler, Washington director of MoveOn.org, slammed McConnell’s offer to Democrats and lamented the minority’s splintering over protecting Dreamers. “What’s clear from today’s joke deal is that the grass-roots movement demanding unity and courage has a lot of work to do to ensure that the whole Democratic Caucus is ready to fight when the time comes,” he said in an interview.
United We Dream Executive Director Cristina Jiménez [MacArthur foundation, co-author of an anti-Trump pro-invasion pro-perversion book, with a kike tranny & Kike M. Kent Dove, executive director of Jews for Racial and Economic Justice).], whose group has mobilized its grass roots to push for Dreamer protection, tweeted that “Dems failed to fight & use their leverage to protect immigrant youth. A false promise to vote on immigration from Rs is not a strategy to win. We won’t be fooled. This vote means deportation.”
Organizing for Action, an offshoot of the political organizing arm built by former President Barack Obama, attempted to keep the blame for the three-day shutdown on the GOP, even as it offered faint praise for the Senate agreement.
“The good news for the American people is that the government shutdown — a crisis needlessly manufactured by Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, and the White House — will soon be over,” OFA spokesman [KIKE] Jesse Lehrich [former Hillary Clinton aide] said in a statement. “But let’s be clear: This stopgap measure is not a solution. It’s merely a band-aid for a self-inflicted wound that remains untreated.”
[KIKE] Schumer spokesman [KIKE? more than likely] Matt House urged all supporters of Dreamer aid to come together around securing the strongest possible showing for an immigration deal next month, when McConnell has vowed to move to a debate on the issue. “Let’s take advantage of the renewed attention and sympathy for Dreamers, and focus on winning the vote 17 days from now,” House wrote in an email.
