Here’s an interesting flashback: back to the ‘90s when Democratic senators actually wanted to enforce our borders.
In the video above from 1993, you can actually hear Sen. Dianne Feinstein say after a distressing visit to the southern border and seeing the problem first-hand:
“Mexico must do its share, because the day when America could be the welfare system for Mexico is gone. We simply can’t afford it…
“It’s a competition for space, whether the space is a job, the space is a home, a place in a classroom, it becomes a competition for space.
“This is a country that’s based on immigration and we all know that. And yet, at times you become so over-taxed, you have to concentrate on saying, ‘The people who should be here are those who come legally at this time.’ And we’ve got to, for the time being, enforce our borders.”
Then-Attorney General Janet Reno said immigration would be “one of the most significant problems” she would face in the Clinton administration.
Sen. Barbara Boxer appears in the video, too, and tells the press:
“I think you see three women before you very determined to solve a problem… we saw the shortage of border patrol agents. We know we need to do more… and I look forward to working [with them] to slow this illegal immigration to a trickle. And I think it can be done.”
Sounds like they needed Trump’s wall. In fact, they were Trump before Trump was saying the same things.
And if that didn’t wet your appetite for exposing hypocrisy, here’s a few more shorter clips of Feinstein from 1994:
