Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer shut down the government in a fight against border security and to grant amnesty to illegal aliens. He is threatening another shutdown in February if the Republicans don’t adopt an open borders policy that will flood our country with illegal aliens and give them a path towards citizenship. He didn’t always put criminal foreign nationals above Americans like this. A clip has surfaced from 2009 where the democratic leader sounds an awful lot like Republicans on the issue of illegal immigration.
This video appears to be Schumer giving a speech at Georgetown University.
“We must create a system that converts the current flow of low-skilled illegal immigrants into the United States into a more manageable and controlled flow of legal immigrants who can be absorbed by our economy,” said Schumer.
Wow, that sounds exactly like what the Republicans are saying now. That we have to stop illegal immigration and revamp the legal immigration system to favor skilled immigrants who can contribute. The only difference is, Schumer now thinks the GOP are racists for saying what he said 9 years ago.
It actually gets worse, or better, depending on your perspective. I’ll say it get’s funnier:
“Let me elaborate. The first of these seven principals is that illegal immigration is wrong, pain and simple,” said Schumer.
Is this the same guy who shuts down the government to benefit people guilty of illegal immigration?
“Until the American people are convinced that we will stop future flows of illegal immigration, we will make no progress on dealing with the millions of illegal immigrants who are here now and on rationalizing our system of legal immigration,” Schumer said.
It’s like watching an episode of The Twilight Zone, isn’t it? Schumer once thought we needed to beef up border security and enforce our existing immigration laws, and now he will fuck over every single America to not do these things.
Now get ready for this:
“When we use phases like ‘undocumented workers’ we convey a message to the American people that their government is not serious about combating illegal immigration,” said Schumer.
And now, if you don’t use a euphemism like “undocumented workers” or “new Americans” Schumer and the rest of the democrats will accuse you of racism.
Of illegal immigration, Schumer also said, “I think it is illegal and wrong and we have to change it.”
If you ain’t laughing yet, this ought to do it for you:
“Above all else, the American people want their government to be serious about protecting the public, enforcing the rule of law, and creating a rational system of legal immigration,” he said.
“People who enter the US without our permission are illegal aliens and illegal aliens should not be treated the same as people who entered the US legally,” said Scumer.
I can only conclude that this was the brief period of time where Chuck Schumer’s body was possessed by someone who isn’t a complete idiot and bullshit artist.
This clip is making the rounds and it will be interesting to see how Schumer and the democrats try to spin this. They could go for the old “I’ve evolved on the issue” nonsense, but I have to believe they are going to say that whoever found this video is a racist for pointing out Schumer’s clear hypocrisy on illegal immigration.
