My NINETY-FOURTH Open Letter To Senator Pat Toomey

I'll be dropping this letter to Senator Pat Toomey in the mail today:
Dear Senator Toomey:

It's me, again - the constituent who writes for the local Pittsburgh-based political blog, "2 Political Junkies."

Let me as you about Trump's shutdown. On a recent Facebook post, you wrote of your support of Donald Trump's "compromise" to get the necessary negotiations started in order to end his shutdown (and, as you'll recall, he said he would be "proud to shutdown the government for border security. So it's his.").

Part of his "compromise" was to extend DACA protections for 3 years. But didn't Trump move to take away those protections in the first place? And hasn't his rather cruel decision to remove those protections (and thus deport all those people) already been blocked by the courts?

So what has your guy Trump actually given up with this "compromise"?

In the meantime, hundreds of thousands of federal workers have been furloughed and many have forced to work without pay, their lives held hostage by the man you continually insist on supporting.

How is this good for America?

Thank you and I await your response.
And I will be posting whatever response I get from him or his office.

Follow-up:

I like that the Democrats pretend DACA is a law and not a DHS memo.

"Clearly the Democrats care more about pandering to illegal aliens than they do about federal workers and the "vital" tasks they perform. They care more about pandering to illegal aliens than about national security or even neighborhood security. They are the party of MS-13. Period."
