Here’s a question for everyone protesting about illegal immigration and deportation: is Donald Trump a racist because of it? If you’re a liberal and you said yes to that question, you can also lump in your political lord and savior, Barack Obama.
We’ve all heard and seen the videos of Bill Clinton back in the mid 90s saying that we needed to stop illegal immigration and build a wall to help combat that which siphons hundreds of billions of dollars from the American economy every year. But you’ll never guess who else said that too.
Back in 2008, Barack Obama said that fencing at the border (same as a wall, people) could help stop illegal immigration. I guess Obama’s a racist too, eh?
A leaked internal memo from Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign says that fencing at the US-Mexico border could help cut down on illegal immigration.
The memo, which was made public by anti-secrecy organization WikiLeaks, is dated September 7, 2008 and contains a list of immigration promises and proposals.
One of Obama’s “core goals,” according to the memo: “Preserve the integrity of our borders to reduce illegal immigration.”
“Securing our borders will not solve the illegal immigration problem in isolation, but combined with an earned path to citizenship for the undocumented and new legal alternatives to unauthorized entry, some additional fencing could help get the border under control.”
Uh oh. Shots fired. I can hear liberals gasping in horror right now.
The memo also says that Obama “Believes fencing should be built where necessary and agreed to in coordination with local governments, Indian tribes and done in an environmentally sensitive manner.”
Obama, according the memo, “Supports additional personnel, infrastructure, and technology on the border and at our ports of entry.”
No doesn’t that sound familiar? Oh wait, that’s because it was on Trump’s platform and everyone’s calling him a racist because of it.
Once again, liberals have no idea what the word “racist” even means.
