Democrats and Republicans used to agree on the wall at the border. Or, at least Democrats were willing to admit that barriers worked. Unfortunately, over the last few years the Democrats have started running with the absurd premise that walls don’t work even though they work beautifully all across the world.
To help illuminate the difference between Democrats a few years ago and Democrats now, the people at campus reform went around and asked students how they felt about some quotes from Democrats regarding immigration but they told the students the quotes were from Trump.
From Campus Reform:
Such quotes include:
“Illegal Immigration is wrong, plain and simple. Until the American people are convinced we will stop future flows of illegal immigration, we will make no progress.” -Senator Chuck Schumer, 2009
“We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented and unchecked” -Barack Obama, 2005
“I voted numerous times… to spend money to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in. And I do think you have to control your borders.” -Hillary Clinton, 2008
Wanting to know if opponents of Trump’s border wall had opinions on these past quotes from Democrat leaders, Campus Reform’s Cabot Phillips headed to American University.
But there’s a catch… the students were told the quotes actually came from President Trump.
Upon hearing the quotes, students said Trump’s words were “dehumanizing,” “problematic,” and “jingoist.”
“I just really think it’s hateful speech,” one student said, while another added, “the way he’s referring to people across the wall is dehumanizing.”
Can’t make this stuff up.
It’s time to do what Democrats and Republicans have been pretending they want for years.
Build the wall.
