Here are some headlines from this week after Trump’s DACA decision:
The New York Times: Inner Racism Revealed.
The American Prospect: DACA Phase-Out Yet Another Gimme to Trump’s Racist Base
I think you get the picture, Trump is a racist and so are his supporters because he phased out DACA putting some at risk to be sent out of the United States.
Surely anyone who would support sending children back is a racist, Right?
Like Hillary Clinton.
In 2014, Hillary had this to say, on CNN, about the fate of children she believed to be refugees of violence in Countries South of our border:
“We have to send a clear message, just because your child gets across the border, that doesn’t mean the child gets to stay,” said Clinton “So, we don’t want to send a message that is contrary to our laws or will encourage more children to make that dangerous journey.”
“So, you’re saying they should be sent back now?” [CNN’s] Christiane Amanpour asked noting that they would be “safer here.” Hillary replied.
“Well, they should be sent back as soon as it can be determined who responsible adults in their families are, because there are concerns whether all of them should be sent back,” said Clinton. “But I think all of them who can be should be reunited with their families.”
So, Hillary must be a racist. Right?
In reality, an open border is not the solution to poverty below our border. Hillary was not racist then and neither is Trump now. Anyone who says they are for making those statement is beyond irresponsible.
They should also recognize how foolish their short memories are and how they didn’t object to such policies not very long ago – such as when Bill Clinton spoke forcefully about the issue of illegal immigration in his 1995 State of the Union.
Bill Clinton bragged about deportations and the denying of welfare to illegals. He called the abuse of immigration laws “self-defeating” for the Country.
He was right then. Hillary was right in 2014.
Who will have the courage now on the Left?
