FLASHBACK: Sen. Schumer Sounded Like Trump on Immigration Reform in 1990

Why the change, Chuck?

With a government shutdown pending, Democrats are showing us that their true loyalties lie with protecting illegal aliens first and American citizens second. But it wasn’t always this way.

In the 1990s, the Democratic Party sounded more like the Republican Party today. TruthRevolt already posted one flashback to 1993 when Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer fiercely argued to enforce the U.S. southern border using similar language as their sworn enemy, President Trump.

Now, more video from that era has been unearthed with more of the same sentiments. This time, Sen. Chuck Schumer is front and center. In this 1990 clip from C-SPAN, a younger Schumer argued that the decision to accept an immigrant into our country can’t solely be based on familial relationships, but should include the skill level of the alien:

“For the first time we’re saying it should not simply be family relationships that determine who comes here. This bill says that if you have a skill that America needs, we’re going to accept you."

 

This is exactly what the president is saying now:

 

How quickly the Left will sell out legal citizens to protect lawbreakers. Of course, those they protect do become future votes, so there is that motivating factor. Elections have consequences, am I right?
