The following words about illegal immigration can be best described as “very presidential.”
Here is a speech given by the president:
“All Americans, not only those in the states most affected, but in every place in this country, are rightly disturbed by the large numbers of the illegal aliens entering our country.
“The jobs they hold may 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 than ever before; by cracking down on illegal hiring; and by barring benefits to illegal aliens.
“In the budget, I will present to you we will try to do more to speed the deportation of illegal aliens who are arrested for crimes; to better identify illegal aliens in the work place, as recommended by the commission headed by former congresswoman Barbara Jordan.
“We are a nation of immigrants, but we are also a nation of laws.
“It is wrong and ultimately self-defeating for a nation of immigrants to permit the kind of abuse of our immigration laws we have seen in recent years, and we must do more to stop it.”
No, those are not the words of President Trump, President G.W. Bush, President G.H. Bush, or President Reagan. Those are the words of President Bill Clinton during his 1995 State of the Union address.
The words took him only 69-seconds to state, but he received a 30-second standing ovation from Congress. Isn’t it amazing how the Democrats used to support the idea of deportation and stopping illegal aliens from causing damage to America?
Today, the liberal media and most Democrats paint President Trump and his supporters as racists, bigots, and haters for voicing the same ideas and beliefs held by Clinton in 1995.
Here is what The New York Times published in 1995 as a response to Clinton’s words on immigration:
“Among the steps the President endorsed on the immigration issue was adoption of a national computer system to keep track of citizens and aliens authorized to work in this country. That would allow employers to check the immigration status of job applicants. Such a system was recommended by a commission headed by former Representative Barbara Jordan, Democrat of Texas.
“The proposal has drawn criticism from ethnic and immigrant groups, but the White House hopes it will stand as a contrast to more conservative proposals like California’s Proposition 187, which, now stayed by the courts, would deny public services and benefits to undocumented aliens.”
The New York Times actually used the word “aliens.” Today, The New York Times shuns the word “aliens” despite it being the legal word used to describe people from a foreign country. Furthermore, nothing in the Times’ article references Clinton as a hater, racist or bigot for wanting to deport illegal aliens. Not a single backlash did they utter towards Clinton for wanting better border security or for demanding the government enforce the rule of law. Not a blurb of disgust over Clinton wanting to keep illegal aliens out of the U.S. so we can protect American lives and American jobs.
It is simply amazing how the media alters the message to fit the guy or gal they want to support or hate. Please share if you agree!
