Schumer Gives ‘Thumbs Up’ to Illegal Aliens in Holding Center

July 23, 2019

Sen. Chuck Schumer shared videos on social media this week in which he is shown offering two thumbs-up of moral support to illegal alien males during a July 19 visit to a holding center in McAllen, Texas.

Schumer urged senior officials at the center to facilitate the swift release of the illegals. “It is a policy decision to keep people here this long… You could, if you chose… turn them over to a center like we saw with Sister Norma,” referring to a nun who runs the Catholic Charities Humanitarian Respite Center in McAllen.

“These are families fleeing violence, searching for a better life in America,” Schumer tweeted. “Humans being locked in cages. To see these people, coming to America in search of a better life, treated in such inhumane conditions. This is heart-wrenching. This is wrong. This is not who we are. This has to end. Now … We must pass our bill to help end it—the Stop Cruelty to Migrant Children Act.”

Curiously, Schumer never complained about these conditions on former President Barack Obama‘s watch.
