The modern Democrat Party is like Kwanzaa; sure, they like to pretend that it’s been around awhile, but in reality, it is a relatively-recently fabrication that can trace its radical origins back merely a few years.
In fact, the Democrat Party’s positions are so new, they would not recognize the party of 2006. Back then, many supported marriage remaining between a man and a woman (you know, like how it was for thousands of years) and back then, Democrats largely did not pretend that coming to the country illegally was a human right.
Now, the left vilifies Donald Trump and other leading Republicans who dare to assert that America has a duty to Americans to secure the border and deport the illegal immigrants.
But back in 2006, Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was singing a different tune.
Speaking to the Council on Foreign Relations in 2006, then-Senator Hillary Clinton stated,
“Mexico is such an important problem. The Mexican government’s policies are pushing migration north.”
“There isn’t any sensible approach except to do what we need to do simultaneously,” Clinton continued. “Secure our border–with technology, personnel, physical barriers if necessary in some places. We need to have tough employer sanctions, incentivize Mexico to do more.”
Clinton also stated that immigrants who have committed “transgressions of any kind” should be “deported.”
Though, in truth, coming to the United States in violation of federal law should count as a “transgression” and lead to a one-way ticket back to their country of origin.
So, to clarify: Clinton stated that we should be deporting people, building a wall, beefing-up border patrols and putting pressure on Mexico to help stop the flow of illegals.
Now, ten years later, Donald Trump saying exactly the same thing is supposedly outrageously racist and unconscionable….
