Dems Previously Supported Border Security Now Play Politics with Immigration

If Hillary were President and wanted $5 billion for a wall Dems would insist she take $10 billion!

Since Sen. John Kerry famously said "I voted for the $87 billion before I voted against it" Democrats have continued to flip flop on important issues of national security whenever they determine their is political hay to be made.  Now, it's whatever Trump wants they are against.  Just like the old Marx Brothers tune:

The Marxist brotherhood in the Democrat Party has no shame in signing their version of that tune even if they are exposed as the most massive hypocrites and liars of all time!

Think back just a few short weeks to where several Senate Democrats in tight re-election races suddenly expressed support for Trump's border wall. Senators Nelson, Heitkamp, Donnely, McCaskill all said in the closing months of the 2018 midterm election that they would support funding for more border security including a wall. They continue to hold office until the new Senate is sworn in and could easily vote for the appropriation. But as expected, their words were empty promises. Same for Senators Tester and Manchin who survived re-election by promising to support Trump's plan. Where are they?

Then there are the Democrats who previously voted for border barriers with the Secure Fence Act of 2006 which promised 700 miles of double layer fencing. The second layer was never built. 80 Senators voted for that bill including Feinstein, Carper and notably Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Now in the U.S. Senate Chuck Schumer and Sherrod Brown, Ron Wyden and Debbie Stabenow voted for the 2006 bill as members of the U.S. House.

That's more than ten votes right there to overcome a filibuster if you are serious about border security. Or where those previous votes just political pandering in the same way as today's refusal to fund the wall?

Obama's 2008 presidential campaign stressed the importance of border security including barriers. Hillary was no different:
HILLARY: "I voted numerous times when I was a Senator to spend money to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in and I do think you have to control your borders," Clinton said.
One of the Democrats current objections to Trump's border wall is that it costs too much. Laughable once you consider that the new crop of the Marxist brotherhood have outlined tens of trillions in NEW spending without a hint of how it might be paid for. Newly minted Representative Ocasio Cortez wants $40 TRILLION in new spending on her pet projects yet denounces $5billion for a border wall as wasteful. Who does she think she's fooling?

Trump is right to stand strong on the border wall and expose Democrats spending hypocrisy. The American people are not as foolish and forgetful as Democrats believe. At least not the Americans who voted against these fools and have no intention of changing their mind!
