Liberals, and media pundits are freaking out following the president’s recent decision to temporarily ban immigrants from certain countries, but years earlier it was the democrats calling for stronger borders.
The left shouts “racist” when republicans attempt to pass security measures, but they were singing a different tune under Bill Clinton’s leadership in the 90’s.
In his State of the Union address back in 1996, then-president Bill Clinton said something that would get him demonized today: he called for stronger border control.
“After years of neglect, this administration has taken a strong stand to stiffen the protection of our borders,” Clinton told the nation. “We are increasing border controls by fifty percent.”
In addition to that, the Clinton administration called for “increasing inspections to prevent the hiring of illegal immigrants.”
“I will sign an executive order to deny federal contracts to businesses that hire illegal immigrants.”
As the media continues to blast Trump for cracking down on illegal immigration, they ignore the fact that this has been a problem in our country for several decades. The safety of our nation should not be a partisan issue, and yet the current president is being labeled a racist for wanting to keep our borders secure. I don’t recall the media being up in arms about Bill Clinton coming down on illegal immigration, but it’s not hard to figure out why (hint: he’s a democrat).
As Donald Trump continues to deliver on his campaign promises, the media continues to act surprised. Perhaps they were used to a lot of talk, and no action like the former president. Fortunately for Americans, Donald Trump isn’t going to sit around, and react to the world. He’s going to step in, and do what needs to be done, political correctness be damned.
