President Trump Tweets 2005 Obama Remarks To Support Immigration Policy

President Trump agrees with Obama but the big difference is Barck Obama didn’t mean a single word of what he said. But somehow it’s racist and inhumane when President Trump enforces immigration law…

Thank you, President Trump, for reminding us how the left in what they used to support but now blame you as the problem. Just like the Democrats blaming you for separating families when the same regulations concerning illegals have been in place many years before your presidency.

The only good thing that came out of 8 years under the Obama regime was Donald Trump.

Fox News:

President Trump turned to an unlikely source Tuesday evening to find support for his hard-line immigration policies: his predecessor, Barack Obama.

Trump tweeted a 2005 video in which Obama, then a senator, made a statement against illegal immigration, accompanied by the comment “I agree with President Obama 100%”.

“We are a generous and welcoming people here in the United States,” Obama says in the 31-second clip. “But those who enter the country illegally and those who employ them disrespect the rule of law and they are showing disregard for those who are following the law. We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, unchecked, and circumventing the line of people who are waiting patiently, diligently and lawfully to become immigrants into this country.”

Obama is not the only Democrat cited by Trump and his supporters to justify crackdowns on illegal immigration. Another is former President Bill Clinton, whose State of the Union address in 1995 featured the following:

“All Americans … are rightly disturbed by the large numbers of illegal aliens entering our country,” Clinton said that night. “The jobs they hold might otherwise be held by citizens or legal immigrants. The public service they use impose burdens on our taxpayers. That’s why our administration has moved aggressively to secure our borders more by hiring a record number of new border guards, by deporting twice as many criminal aliens as ever before, by cracking down on illegal hiring, by barring welfare benefits to illegal aliens.” More
