Late Friday evening, House and Senate Democrats voted to shut down our government and use our military as political pawns in their fight to keep 800,000 illegal aliens and their extended families in America, hoping that if they show they are fighting to keep illegals here, millions of illegals will become future Democrat voters. Meanwhile, without batting an eye, Demcrat lawmakers have shamelessly cut payments to our brave troops and law enforcement officers.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders slammed House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for taking House members out to dinner at a fancy DC restaurant to celebrate. Sanders tweeted:
Nancy Pelosi is "very proud" Democrats shut the government down over illegal immigration and is taking Democrats out tonight to celebrate. Nice message to send to the brave men & women of our military and border patrol forced to work without pay during the #DemocraticShutdown https://t.co/438vcZvf3k

Politico’s Jake Sherman was the first to report about Nancy Pelosi hosting a dinner for all House Dems at the “Aqua Al 2” restaurant in DC.

Republican Rep. Steven Smith responded to Sherman’s tweet, by posting a copy of the menu with entree items ranging from $18- $39.
Get these people a McDonald's hamburger and tell them to GET BACK TO WORK.
And they had BETTER BE picking up the tab, considering that our soldiers AREN'T GETTING PAYCHECKS.

“Thomas-S Fla,” asked Pelosi if his US Army daughter can go? He admonished the out-of-touch legislator for her arrogance and insensitivity to our American troops who the Democrats are using as pawns in their fight to keep 800,000 illegal aliens and their extended families in the U.S. for votes. He tweeted:
Hi @NancyPelosi Can my @USArmy daughter go? For some reason she's not getting a paycheck and illegals get more support from dems then she does…personally I think its idiotic to hold up military paychecks… The play with high explosives… pic.twitter.com/rIzpJWKkbo

Anyone who follows the pattern of Dem agenda, talking points and strategy knows that illegal aliens are part of their voting bloc. They intend to entrench and exploit as many (Hispanic) illegals as they can to push their socialist agenda, institutionalize selective rights, and wrest control of the country away from American citizens. Democrats would rather subvert the voting process for political gain than follow the law.
