Bernie Sanders Against DREAMers-for-Wall-Funding Deal

On Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s Cuomo Primetime, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) rejected the idea of trading funding for a border wall for concessions on DREAMers.

Asked by host Chris Cuomo what would be the problem with giving the president wall funding in exchange for concessions on DREAMers, Sanders replied:

“I find it incomprehensible that we have a president of the United States, the leader of our government, who wants to shut down the government, impact the livelihood of some 750,000 federal workers and seven government agencies, which impact millions of Americans. I think it’s totally absurd and disgraceful.”
