Remember When Obama Was the Deporter-in-Chief?
Democrats sure have changed their tune about illegal immigration. Less than a generation ago, they sounded exactly like President Donald Trump. In 1995, President Bill Clinton said this about illegal immigration;
“All Americans, […], are rightly disturbed by the large numbers of illegal aliens entering our country. The jobs they hold might otherwise be held by citizens or legal immigrants. The public service they use impose burdens on our taxpayers. That’s why our administration has moved aggressively to secure our borders by hiring a record number of new border guards, by deporting twice as many criminal aliens, by cracking down on illegal hiring, by barring welfare benefits to illegal aliens. […], we will do more to speed the deportation of illegal aliens who are arrested for crimes, to identify illegal aliens in the workplace. […] It is wrong and self-defeating for a nation of immigrants to permit the kind of abuse of our immigration laws we have seen in recent years, and we must do more to stop it.”
In 2009, Senior Democrat Senator, Chuck Schumer said this about illegal immigration;
“The American people are pro-legal immigration and anti-illegal immigration. We will only pass comprehensive reform when we recognize this fundamental concept. The following principles are based on this concept and comprise what I believe to be the framework for a bill that can receive overwhelming and bipartisan congressional support. First, illegal immigration is wrong, and a primary goal of comprehensive immigration reform must be to dramatically curtail future illegal immigration.”
Former President Barak Obama built the detention facilities that liberals are calling cages. Obama enforced the same anti-illegal-immigration laws Trump is enforcing.
The pro-immigration push is nothing but weaponized politics.
