“All Americans, not only in the states most heavily affected but in every place in this country, are rightly disturbed by the large number of illegal aliens entering our country.”
(10 million in 1995? 30 million today? Who does the counting?).
That’s why our administration has moved aggressively to secure our borders …, by cracking down on illegal hiring, by barring welfare benefits to illegal aliens”.
(What a bunch of useless, symbolic, political rhetoric).
We are a nation of (legal) immigrants. But we are also a nation of laws (maybe once upon a time).
It is wrong and ultimately self-defeating for a nation of (legal) immigrants to permit the kind of abuse of our immigration laws we have seen in recent years (no kidding) and we must do more to stop it”.
(How about doing everything we can, including building a wall ?).
From Bill Clinton’s 1995 State of the Union Address. (Comments by yours truly).
Why wasn’t Bill Clinton called a racist, a bigot, a xenophobe, a Nazi, or Hitler for saying the exact same things that President Trump is proposing?
Why doesn’t the media remind the American public of Hillary’s husband’s words on illegal immigration?
Because the democratic party and the MSM, including the local tv stations are allies.
They’re one and the same.
Why was it ok for Obama to ban Iraqis for six months in 2011, but not for Mr Trump to at least temporarily suspend immigration from countries that are hostile towards the US ?
Why was it ok for Obama to ban Cubans fleeing a communist nation from entering the US two days before he left office without a peep from DEMS or the useless media ?
Because socialist/communist Obama, democrats and their media love the communist Cuban government, but not the Cuban people. (Probably because they would vote Republican).
And why is it ok for liberals like the Clintons, the Obama’s, and liberals everywhere to have a fence or a wall around their homes and/or businesses for safety and security, but not for our nation to have secure barriers to at least slow down the invasion of illegals ?
What’s good for thee (Democrats) is not good for me (a conservative) or our nation.
A little hypocrisy there?
By the way, the VMS “Presidential bluster and blunder” Editorial is pure left wing hogwash.
Tell the people about the $25 billion that gets sent back to Mexico every year.
Tell the people in the RGV the cost of welfare benefits, education, etc. spent on illegals and their offspring.
Great for Mexico, for the U.S. economy and taxpayers, not so much.
Then there’s the rapes, murders, robberies, etc committed by illegals.
Nevermind the financial cost criminal illegals place on our criminal justice system, what about effects on the lives of victims of illegals and their families.
Please justify that AIM Editorial Board.
Going on three years now and the accused killers of Border Patrol agent Javier Vega still haven’t gone on trial. What’s the holdup?
Is the DA waiting for the family members that witnessed the muder of their loved one to die or to not want to relive the events of that fateful day?
