Trump Agrees With then-Senator Obama’s Illegal Immigration Assessment
In today’s polarized political climate, finding a bipartisan agreement on illegal immigration becomes harder and harder. According to President Trump, he looks back to the past to see how in just a few years the minds of Democrats have changed to a more radical left position.
On Tuesday, President Trump stated he agreed with then-Senator Obama’s assessment of illegal immigration into the United States. When Barack Obama was Senator Obama, he believed those employed illegal immigrants would be breaking the law and the United States was based on a system of laws. On Twitter, President Trump said, “I agree with President Obama 100%!” and posted a video of Obama speaking his mind on illegal immigration.

According to Obama, “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,” Obama said in the clip.
“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 in this country.”
Its clearly common sense when Obama says we need to enforce our laws of immigration and border security, but when President Trump says the same thing, its offensive and mean-spirited. Democrats have embraced more leftist policies of open borders and weak border security, which according to President Trump, is the primary reason upwards of a ten thousand migrant-caravan are headed to the United States. Loopholes in the immigration law and porous borders only encourage illegal immigration. The President has stated before he wants to build a wall, but have a huge door in it, for those to be let in who can be vetted and abide by the laws of the United States.
