Letter: Democrats were once tough on immigration – The Mercury News

Democrats were once
tough on immigration

Liberals now want to welcome hordes of people at our southern border into the U.S. The following quote may surprise you.

“The American people are a generous and welcoming people. But those who enter the country illegally, and those who employ them, disrespect the rule of law.

“And because we live in an age where terrorists are challenging our borders, we simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented and unchecked. Americans are right to demand better border security and better enforcement of the immigration laws.”

Trump quote? No, then-Sen. Barack Obama in 2006. President Clinton expressed the same concerns in his 1995 State of the Union speech.
