President Trump called out Democratic lawmakers and left-wing activists earlier Friday, accusing Sen. Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, and other liberal leaders of “totally forgetting” about DACA just weeks after shutting down the federal government over the hot-button issue.
The President ripped the legislators on social media, reminding “those who are still interested” that the deadline to reach an agreement on the Obama-era policy is rapidly approaching.
“For those of you who are still interested, the Democrats have totally forgotten about DACA. Not a lot of interest on this subject from them!” Trump tweeted.
For those of you who are still interested, the Democrats have totally forgotten about DACA. Not a lot of interest on this subject from them!

The President’s not-so-subtle jab serves as a reminder to Democratic leadership that the March 5th deadline is looming large; leaving the fate of nearly two million illegal immigrant youths hanging in the balance.
Trump has repeatedly called for a bipartisan agreement to deal with the ‘Dreamers’ currently residing in the United States, but said no deal can be reached without fully funding his long-promised border wall.
DACA DELUSION: Kirsten Gillibrand Says ‘Chain Migration’ is a ‘RACIST SLUR’
New York Senator and possible 2020 presidential hopeful Kirsten Gillibrand continued her crusade against President Trump’s proposed immigration overhaul on Monday; telling television viewers that the term “chain migration” is somehow a “racist slur” against immigrants and foreigners.
Gillibrand was speaking with ‘The View’ when she unloaded on the President’s proposal to provide a pathway to citizenship for nearly 2 million ‘Dreamers’ in exchange for ending “chain migration” and increased funding for his border wall.
“Do you agree with Nancy Pelosi when she says Trump wants to ‘Make America White Again’ and that’s what this is all about?” asked co-host Joy Behar.
“I think a lot of President Trump’s rhetoric is racist. Let’s be very clear: When someone uses the phrase chain migration it is intentional in trying to demonize families, literally trying to demonize families and make it a racist slur, it is not right. We have to change the debate” Gillibrand said.

Pelosi Says ‘God Is With’ Democrats on DACA
Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi believes liberal lawmakers have the moral high ground on the ongoing immigration debate in the United States, strangely suggesting that “God is with” the Democratic Party regarding DACA and Dreamers.
The House Minority Leader was addressing reporters on Thursday when she was asked if she’d be willing to accept border wall funding or a crackdown on illegal immigration to reach a deal with President Trump on DACA.
“Have you changed your mind at all about being willing to accept some border wall funding or immigration crackdown funding within a DREAM Act fix?” asked one journalist.
“We’ve said to the president the night he agreed to the DACA legislation that we have a responsibility to protect our border, and we find — think are many things we can do working together to do that. And members have been working in a bipartisan way to address that,” said Pelosi.
“But I’m optimistic. I always have been. God is with us on this. Our country is great. We know their greatness springs from the vitality that newcomers bring to our country. 80 percent at least of the American people support the DREAMers,” she added.
