FLASHBACK: Schumer ‘Illegal Immigration Wrong

Now, he says following the law is "heartless."

After President Trump announced the end to DACA, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called the decision “heartless.” But let’s flash back to 2009, when Schumer argued against illegal immigration.

“The American people are fundamentally pro-legal immigration and anti-illegal immigration,” Schumer said at the Law & Policy Conference at Georgetown Law. “We will only pass comprehensive reform when we recognize this fundamental concept.”

The goal of his entire speech was to proclaim illegal immigration as bad and how “comprehensive immigration reform” is a must to “curtail future illegal immigration.”

Schumer’s hypocrisy surfaced back in January when Trump announced the so-called Muslim ban. Schumer shed tears and called it “mean-spirited and un-American.” However, he had forgotten that in 2015 he called for the same thing on Twitter:

“We must tighten loopholes in the Visa Waiver prgm, ensure passports can’t be faked & stop terrorists who want to exploit the system.”

It seems the senator just can’t make up his mind which side of the issue he’s going to land on.
