Schiff on Border Security: We Will Negotiate Amongst Each Other and with the W.H. But We’re Not About To Negotiate with Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh

‘One of our top priorities is passing a bill to make that kind of shutdown impossible in the future’

RUSH EXCERPT:

SCHIFF: “I don’t support any wall funding but I do support border security. And you know, the important thing, I think, to remember here is, Democrats and Republicans can not only reach an agreement on border security, we already have multiple times. In fact, we agreed on conference reports that would set out the funding for border security, we sent multiple bills through each chamber with bipartisan support. The only thing that got in the way was the president was frightened off by Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh. And while we will negotiate amongst each other and with the White House, we’re not about to negotiate with these conservative pundits. And therein has been the problem but I’m confident and hopeful we’re not going to see shutdowns again. And I think one of our top priorities is passing a bill to make that kind of shutdown impossible in the future.”
