    How About That?: College Students Shocked to Hear Hillary, Obama & Schumer Pushed Border Security


    https://insider.foxnews.com/2019/01/...-obama-hillary
    Students at American University reacted unfavorably to calls for increased border security to stem the flow of illegal immigrants, expressing shock that prominent Democrats have agreed with the idea in the past.... Campus Reform's Cabot Phillips visited the university's Washington, D.C. campus amid the ongoing border funding battle and partial government shutdown.... He presented students with several quotes that sounded a lot like President Trump's speeches, but actually came from then-Senator Barack Obama, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Hillary Clinton -- including:
    “Illegal Immigration is wrong, plain and simple. Until the American people are convinced we will stop future flows of illegal immigration, we will make no progress.” - Schumer, 2009
    “We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented and unchecked” - Obama, 2005
    “I voted numerous times when I was a senator to spend money to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in. And I do think you have to control your borders.” - Clinton, 2015
    Students described the quotes as “dehumanizing,” “problematic” and “jingoist," with one student dubbing it "hateful speech" and another claiming the comments contained "racial biases."... The were in for a surprise, however, when Phillips informed that prominent Democrats actually made the remarks.

    People both young and old get all their news from their smart phones and computers. The fact that these college students were clueless about this indicates just how thorough a job of censorship is being done by MSN, Google, Facebook and others in Silicon Valley This is becoming critical it is we should do something about it.
    Politicians of the Progressive Left have only supported increased border security as part of a huge amnesty give-away “comprehensive package.” They NEVER really supported border security in and of itself, and were always dead set against “border security first,” which was really a GOP reaction to leftist dithering on the matter.
    Just think: It was Obama who starved the Border Patrol of resources and who put in all sorts of rules basically telling them to let people in. Sure, he had a lot of “deportations,” but that was a statistical at the border game to make his numbers look good. Remember, he didn’t do squat when the trains of aliens rolled north through Mexico. There is a claim that 693 miles of border wall were built during the Obama administration. That is a lie/falsehood/misstatement of fact. Most of the wall was already there constructed by previous administrations before Bush 43 and Obama. Actually under the Obama administration less than one tenth of that was constructed as new border wall. Whatever happened to the $56 billion alloted for the Secure Fence Act of 2006?

    Stop conflating "border security" with "two thousand mile wall"

    The entire right wing drama over the border "crisis" is emotional garbage.

    College students are just that, students. That anything shocks them is no surprise. Among the points of being a college student is to obtain a deep and broad enough understanding of the world in which they live so that few if anything flabbergasts them.

    Last time i checked we are a nation with borders.
    We have people that ignore those borders and come into this country illegally.

    they cost tax payers billions of dollars a year.

    The fact of the matter is that you once again failed to address the topic of how uninformed
    these people are.

    They have 0 clue and manufacture moral outrage until it is pointed out that ol yea a liberal said it.
    now that a liberal said it. they go stupid dumb and can't talk.

    they can't apply their same moral outrage at other people. it is called uninformed and low logic and thinking capability.
    it is why we are entering a new dark age.

    Republicans know they lost the argument on the wall, so now they're trying to pretend it's always been about simple "border security."

    They're gas lighting the country in exactly the same way as when they pretended that Trump didn't spend a straight year telling us that Mexico would pay for the wall.

    Republicans are lying about every square inch of this issue, including that past Presidents supported or argued for a wall, that terrorists are flooding across the US/Mexico border, or that immigrants are responsible for a disproportionate amount of crime.

    They're all starting to abandon calling the border security issue a "crisis," and have almost completely given up trying to lay blame for the shutdown on Democrats.

    Aside from the ACA, I can't think of a single national debate that Republicans lost so perfectly.

    You should read more than just the title.
