As we enter Day 3 of the current government shutdown, the entire federal government of the United States continues to be held hostage by the Democrats.
At the heart of the Democrats refusal to pass a continuing resolution to keep the government open stands the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) bill. Democrats continue to hold out on funding the men and women of the United States military in preference to preserving the supposed rights of people who, regardless of circumstance, are in country illegally.
While anyone with a heart can sympathize with the plight of the DACA recipients, the duty of Congress is above all else to the lawful citizens of this country. The elected representatives who refuse to serve the American citizens are clearly derelict in their duties.
This dereliction could prompt one to question: where do their loyalties lie?
