Jamiel Shaw Sr., whose son was murdered by an illegal immigrant, said Tuesday that he is not buying Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer's (D., N.Y.) tears over President Trump's executive order on immigration.
Schumer on Sunday choked up as though he was crying during a press conference where he attacked Trump's executive order temporarily banning immigration from certain countries in the Middle East and Africa over terrorism fears, called the action "mean-spirited" and "un-American."
Many believe that Schumer's tears were fake, including Trump. The New York Democrat tweeted out a picture of the Statue of Liberty and said that it was crying.

Fox News host Ainsley Earhardt asked Shaw what his message to Schumer is. Shaw agreed with Trump that Schumer's tears were fake before dismissing the Senate minority leader.
"It's like what Trump said, that was so fake," Shaw said. "You know, I've been to funerals, candlelight vigils, you want to see real crying and hurt people, why don't you show up there."
"I know a lot of parents who cry every day, including myself," Shaw continued. "That's all we do is think about our loved ones, and to see him crying for terrorists and people we don't even know who they are when he has Americans here, that he gives us no support, you know I could care less about Chuck Schumer."
