The Democrats running for President may have stepped on a landmine, so to speak, when it comes to talking about illegal immigration.
That was on display last week during the two nights of debates in Miami. Certainly what they say now about illegal immigration is not what Bill Clinton talked about during his State of the Union address in 1995.
“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 services they use impose burdens on our taxpayers,” Clinton said.
It's also different than what then President Obama said during an interview on ABC in 2014.
“Do not send your children to the borders.” The U.S. Border Patrol, he said, should be able to “stem the flow of illegal crossings and speed the return of those who do cross over ... Undocumented workers broke our immigration laws, and I believe that they must be held accountable,” Obama said back then.
Charles Blain with Urban Reform tells KTRH the Dems are out there when it comes to this issue now.
“They’ve gone far off the deep end. To see where they are today compared to the last two Democratic Presidents, it’s absurd,” Blain stated.
And he'd afraid of what could happen after 2020.
“If they are willing to sell out their values or move so far to the left just to get votes, what are they going to do if they do end up getting into office,” Blain asked, adding that we even saw Joe Biden raise his hand to the question of free health care for illegals.
