Chuck Schumer is a hard core champion of open borders and amnesty.
He praises illegal aliens like the fabric of America.
But he quickly came to regret these comments.
Back in 2009, when Democrats controlled both houses of Congress and Barack Obama occupied the White House, there was talk of an amnesty bill.
But Democrats didn’t budge on the issue.
That’s because amnesty for illegal aliens was just as toxic then as it is now.
And there was one Senator who gave a major speech describing why any immigration bill must end illegal immigration once and for all.
That Senator was Chuck Schumer.
In 2009, he gave a speech where he declared that illegal immigration was “wrong.”
The Daily Caller reports:
“During a speech at the Immigration Law & Policy Conference at Georgetown Law, Schumer repeatedly argued that immigration reform should focus on encouraging legal immigration and should make clear that “illegal immigration is wrong.”
“The American people are fundamentally pro-legal immigration and anti-illegal immigration,” Schumer explained at the conference. “We will only pass comprehensive reform when we recognize this fundamental concept.”
“The following seven principles are all based on this concept and comprise what I believe to be the framework for a bill that can receive overwhelming and bipartisan congressional support,” he said.
“First, illegal immigration is wrong,” Schumer declared, “and a primary goal of comprehensive immigration reform must be to dramatically curtail future illegal immigration.”
The Democrat Party is now so completely dependent on Hispanic votes on urban liberals that amnesty for illegal aliens with no restrictions what so ever on immigration is now a party litmus test.
Will Schumer’s hypocrisy cost the Democrats in DACA debate and the 2018 midterms? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section.
