If the Schumer of 2009 were still in the Senate, instead of the 2018 version, we’d have already started building that border wall. Schumer USED to oppose illegal immigration as wrong. Now he will literally shut down the Government to defend it. He used to OPPOSE the use of phrases like ‘undocumented workers’ because those words would “convey a message to the American people that their government is not serious about combatting illegal immigration”.
And now, he’s more than happy to convey that very message to the American people. More than that, he tries to paint those who oppose his open-borders agenda as somehow ‘immoral’.
“People who enter the United States without our permission are illegal aliens, and illegal aliens should not be treated the same as people who entered the United States legally,” Schumer continued. “Any immigration solution must recognize that we must do as much as we can to gain operational control of our borders as soon as possible.”
…”The American people need to know that, because of our efforts in Congress, our border is far more secure today than it was when we began debating comprehensive immigration reform in 2005,” Schumer stated. “Between 2005 and 2009, a vast amount of progress has been made on our borders and ports of entry.”
“This progress includes … construction of 630 miles of border fence that create a significant barrier to illegal immigration on our southern land border,” Schumer explained.
Schumer is by no means the only Democrat who’s ‘evolved’ over this issue.
Pelosi and Schumer posted tweets slamming Trump that were word-for-word identical on Christmas Eve.
