For months, Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton has claimed to be a supporter of amnesty and repeatedly attacks Donald Trump for daring to want to enforce our immigration laws.
While Ms. Clinton now opposes Trump’s call to build a border wall along our southern border, we should be reminded that just 10 years ago the Democrat voted to build that very same wall.
Sounding like Trump, at the time Clinton stressed that a border fence was the only way to stop the flood of illegal immigrants coming into this country.
From The Daily Caller:
The Secure Fence Act of 2006’s stated purpose was to check the flow of illegal immigrants, drugs, and other illegal goods into the U.S. by erecting a double-layer fence along large swaths of the border. The law also generally increased funding for border security, authorizing funds for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to purchase cameras, drones, and other assets.
At the time, Hillary Clinton said the law was the only possible fix to a seemingly endless torrent of illegal immigrants entering the U.S.
“There isn’t any sensible approach except to do what we need to do simultaneously: you know, secure our borders with technology and personnel, physical barriers if necessary in some places,” she told the Council on Foreign Relations.
How can Clinton claim to be authentic on the issue of immigration when she once voted in favor of building a border wall? Is she just pandering to the Hispanic community to garner votes? Share your thoughts with us below!
