The illegal aliens entering our country “hold jobs that might otherwise be held by citizens or legal immigrants,” said the President in this speech published on youtube. “The public service they use imposes burdens on our taxpayers,” he continues. It is wrong to permit this kind of abuse, he continues, which is his administration is “moving aggressively to secure our borders” by deporting more criminal aliens and cracking down on illegal hiring.
Most people might assume that the President who gave this speech was President Trump.
But it wasn’t.
President Bill Clinton actually delivered this message as part of his 1995 State of the Union speech.
“We are a nation of immigrants, but we are also a nation of laws,” President Clinton said. “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.”
With all of the division in today’s political climate, it would be great if more Democrats and Liberals saw this speech from years ago. Trump could just televise this speech and then state “I’m Donald Trump and I approved this message!”
