On Illegals, Democrats Sounded Like Trump, But Were Counting Future Votes

RNC chair calls out media hypocrisy – with a flashback to Obama’s words on immigration

On Tuesday, President Trump stated he agreed with then-Senator Obama's assessment of illegal immigration into the United States.

In a speech to Nevada Democrats, Mr. Obama derided Mr. Trump, without naming him in that clip, as merely being handed off a booming economy by the previous president and contrasted that with his own inheritance on the economy. "We simply can not allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, unchecked, and circumventing the line of people who are waiting patiently, diligently and lawfully to become immigrants into this country".

The bill was never voted on in the Senate.

"I have a real hard time with that bullshit", Witt remarks before crossing another name off his list of eligible voters in this precinct north of the Las Vegas strip, part of a Democratic stronghold known as Clark County, Nevada.

Ten years ago, Fox reported, she was quite clear about illegal immigration: "We do need to address the issue of immigration and the challenge we have of undocumented people in our country".

In his final debate with Hillary Clinton in 2016, Trump said, "President Obama has moved millions of people out".

On the other side of the Hill, Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Trump's immigration plan was a "campaign to Make America White Again" and more recently said building the wall was a "manhood" issue for Trump. "We certainly do not want any more coming in".

The 66-year-old retired cabinet maker volunteered to canvass neighborhoods for Democrats in July after deciding "there's gotta be something more to life than sitting around on my ass all day watching CNN and getting upset at what's going on around the country".

Obama is the latest in a string of national surrogates who have visited Nevada in the 2018 midterm cycle and Democrats are hoping some Hollywood star power will invigorate their base.

A few minutes later Trump sent out another message on Twitter, saying "We are a great Sovereign Nation". The problem is not just with amnesty but with the structure of our legal-immigration system.
