Rep. Luis Gutierrez, who was recently interviewed on MSNBC, spoke about the Democratic determination of a spending bill that is planned to give the government funds until February 8th. He expressed his worry and disillusionment because, “they’re caving.”
“I’m disillusioned. I think they’re caving. You know Democrats are pretty good at articulating values, but a little weak on defending them” stated Gutierrez.
“I think we needed to stand tall on this issue. We said we wanted to set aside and put in a safe space 800,000 young people. Their lives are important. And let’s be clear. It is not about a wall. If it were about a wall, we would never had a government shutdown, and we would have been able to move forward.”
