The 2018 election is now in the home stretch.
Both parties are honing their closing message to voters.
And Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi just gave the Democrats one crazy piece of advice.
Schumer and Pelosi are in a panic.
A caravan of 7,000 migrants is marching toward America’s southern border.
Democrats thought this would be a political winner.
But Donald Trump took a strong stand against this migrant invasion.
And now Democrats are back on their heels as immigration surges to the forefront of the national political conversation.
They don’t have any good options so Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer sent out a statement telling their members to ignore the caravan.
Their goal is to make voters forget about this issue.
While the statement was to their members, Trump supporters also believe it was a cue to the media to stop covering this story.
Pelosi tweeted out the joint statement from herself and Schumer.
.@realDonaldTrump is desperate to change the subject from health care to immigration because he knows that health care is the #1 issue Americans care about. The GOP is threatening to gut protections for pre-existing conditions. Dems are focused like a laser to #ProtectOurCare. pic.twitter.com/WtOPeTUMrb
