H/T Joe LaVeque
Just as hardcore, if not more so, than Donald Trump, Slick Willie decries the horror of illegal immigration and demands a stop to it in his 1995 State of the Union Address. He receives a standing ovation from Republicans and Democrats alike for his hardline position. Of course, that was before foreign countries started pouring millions of dollars into the Clinton Foundation.
President Trump, on the other hand, has been attacked by the Democrats, Rinos, and mainstream media for his similar position on illegal immigration.
The difference is Slick was all talk and barefaced lies. He had no intention of stopping a damned thing. He was just speaking blah-blah-blah platitudes for political gain. President Trump is actually doing what he said he would do and the liberal weenies are apoplectic over it. Driving forward, President Trump doesn’t seem to give a flying doodly what the weenies say or do. America First! (transcript below the video)
“All Americans, not only in the states most heavily affected but in every place in this country, 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 more by hiring a record number of new border guards, by deporting twice as many criminal aliens as ever before, by cracking down on illegal hiring, by barring welfare benefits to illegal aliens.
In the budget I will present to you, we will try to do more to speed the deportation of illegal aliens who are arrested for crimes, to better identify illegal aliens in the workplace as recommended by the commission headed by former Congresswoman Barbara Jordan.
We are a nation of immigrants. But we are also a nation of laws. It is wrong and ultimately 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.”
