New York Sen. Chuck Schumer thought a “pause” in accepting refugees “may be necessary” in 2015 when Barack Obama was president.
But a temporary ban ordered by President Donald Trump in 2017 — barely one year later — literally has him in tears. “This executive order was mean-spirited and un-American,” Schumer declared while surrounded by children.
Numbers USA dug up some old audio of Schumer telling reporters that a “pause” in taking in refugees “may be necessary.”
This is a far different reaction than one he delivered on Sunday.
