According to Fox News:

Now, those in the House progressive wing are turning their ire toward Schumer, D-N.Y., for allegedly not fighting for the restrictions they sought -- provisions such as limiting the amount of time unaccompanied minors can spend at an influx shelter, and reducing funding for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) by millions.

“Chuck Schumer f---d us,” a Democratic aide told Vanity Fair last week.

“Schumer threw all of the House Democrats under the bus and he will pay a heavy price for that,” another Democratic aide told Politico.

The Congressional Hispanic Caucus last week called the measure a “betrayal of our American values,” and one that they will “not forget.”

This has led to speculation that the Schumer and Pelosi relationship has soured as it is viewed that Schumer gave away all of the Democrats leverage on immigration.
