NEW YORK – Adviser Kellyanne Conway called out Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer for opposing the White House’s immigration plan Monday, and said illegal immigration leads to the death of American citizens during a “Fox and Friends” interview.
“I’d like to know what Chuck Schumer thinks is reasonable because you everyday, every week certainly have somebody on who’s lost love ones because an illegal immigrant has murdered them, killed them. I’ve stood shoulder to shoulder. I’ve met these families. More importantly the president has acknowledged them,” she said.
Conway claimed if the federal government would enforce existing law, they would be able to deport repeat offenders and shift their focus to helping the American worker.
“If we would just enforce the laws that exist. If we would stop providing sanctuary to folks who have been deported multiple times. Broken the law multiple times. If we would lift up the American worker. Raise their pay. Simple things,” she said.
Conway said the fight over immigration isn’t limited to illegal immigrants, but also includes the increase of drugs coming across the southern border.
“What’s reasonable is to stop the flow of illegal immigrants and also of the drugs coming over the border … all the drugs coming over the border have to stop as well,” she concluded.
