Hypocrisy seems to be the main Democratic platform these days. On issues like immigration and border security, it would be one thing if the left had a consistent message. They still might be wrong, but at least you could give them credit for steadfastly believing in their principles.
Instead, the opposite is true. Far from having a consistent stance on immigration, the very same Democrats who are now cheering for open borders and pretending that illegal immigration isn’t a crisis had a very, very different message not so long ago.
Here’s a perfect example. In a video that goes back to 1994, none other than Dianne Feinstein — yes, the Democratic senator who is now implying that enforcing the border is racist — spoke out about the issue, and sounded downright Trump-like.
“We can enforce our borders. I think we should enforce our borders,” the outspoken liberal declared on video 25 years ago.
Amazingly, Feinstein even brought up the issue of “anchor babies,” more accurately called birthright citizenship, which she admitted was wreaking havoc on California already over two decades ago.
“To have a situation where 40 percent of the babies born on Medicaid in California today are born of illegal immigrants, creates a very real problem for the state,” Feinstein strongly stated. “Which is in deficit.”
Guess what? California is now the state with the highest rate of poverty in the country, thanks in part of illegal immigration and “sanctuary city” policies that attract them…….
