Marc Thiessen: Shutdown Was a ‘Manufactured Crisis’; ‘No One Was About To Get Deported’

‘There is no crisis here’

THIESSEN: "It was a manufactured crisis, Martha. The DACA deadline was March 5. So there was six weeks away. There was no — no one was about to get deported. There was no reason to shut down the government. On top of that, Donald Trump created the March 5 deadline. He said he would extend it if possible. There is no crisis here. Chuck Schumer today said you know the extra money for the wall I promised you? I’m talking that off. There’s not going to be a deal without a wall."
