Listen to Obama sounding like Donald Trump in 2006 on immigration.

This is 2006 just before Obama was elected to his first term. It wasn't only Obama either. All of the top Democrats who are still there, Biden, Schumer, Pelosi, etc. were citing Donald Trump's border policy TO THE LETTER. Then a couple years later they ALL miraculously did a complete 180 and are now claiming the border situation is "secure" as these traitors usher in 200,000 undocumented, unknown people into our country EVERY MONTH! So how do Democrat supporters explain this complete reversal and abandonment of our border security? :dunno:

Lots of Hispanic groups called Obama the "Deporter-in-Chief".

There is no "reversal"...it's a figment of your imagination.

Simple. The policy hasn't really changed.

We catch you trying to sneak into the country, 90% of the time, you are still going to get sent back.

The only difference between Trump and Biden or Obama is that Trump just juiced up the racist rhetoric.

The only question is how do we deal with the people who are legitimately entitled to asylum hearings under out laws.

Democrats didnt call him that, so why the sudden reversal?

Actually, a lot of Democrats WERE upset with the fact that Obama doubled down on enforcement without even trying to fight all that hard for immigration reform.

Here's the elephant in the room. Our policies don't work. As long as you have labor demand on one side of the border and excess labor on the other side, people are going to find ways to cross over. We all scream about the "undocumented", but then are perfectly fine when they clean our toilets, pick our lettuce, and finish our home improvement projects.

You could solve the undocumented immigration problem in short order.

1) Put all your emphasis on going after the people who hire illegals.
2) Allow for temporary guest worker visas for 1 year, subject to extention.
3) Create a National ID program so people know who they are actually hiring.

Instead, we catch them at the border, send them back, and they are back again a couple weeks later as soon as they can raise another $1000 to pay a coyote.

Im perfectly happy to take those 3 steps, but we can do a fuck of a lot more than that. Build a wall and break the legs of anyone caught trying to go over or under it. Trust me, people will stop coming. Instead we hand them welfare checks, give them a bed and a roof, provide medical treatment, we get them translators and we just generally pamper them. Break their bones instead and all of these issues disappear.

A lot of Hispanics are Democrats...a depenable DNC voting block from 2008 and 2012 Obama got 67% of Hispanics in 2008 and over 70% in 2012.

There was no reversal.

You omitted one thing: not all illegal immigrants are caught. Also, Pelosi would be calling a Republican "racist" for saying what she said last week.

It’s true, securing the border used to be a nonpartisan issue

Obama deported more illegals than any president in history.

Did you immigrate illegally, crossing over a wall/fence that was put in place to prevent people from illegally entering the country? Those that do so enter at their own risk. If you trespass in your neighbor's fenced in yard, don't complain about being bitten by his guard dog!
