College students were given quotes about immigration under the assumption they were said by President Donald Trump. They hated the quotes simply because they thought it was Trump who said them.
Little did they know these quotes from from former President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Sen. Chuck Schumer — three of the most well known Democrats in American politics.
The basis of this video stems from the government being in the middle of a partial shutdown after Trump and Democrats were unable to agree on a spending agreement.
Trump wants money for border security, which includes building a wall or barrier like structure to be a deterrent to illegal immigrants from stepping into America, breaking immigration laws.
Democrats previously offered Trump some money for his wall in exchange for a deal on DACA, but they couldn’t agree to that either.
Campus Reform stated, “The wall, a key talking point for Trump throughout the campaign, has been decried by leaders in the Democrat party as anti-American and immoral, among other things.
“I just really think it’s hateful speech,” one student said.
But their opposition to the wall and embrace of looser immigration laws seems to be a new development.
In recent years, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, Obama, and Clinton have all stated the danger in embracing illegal immigration and ignoring the laws we have on the books.”
“Illegal Immigration is wrong, plain and simple. Until the American people are convinced we will stop future flows of illegal immigration, we will make no progress,” said Schumer in 2009.
“We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented and unchecked,” said Obama in 2005.
“I voted numerous times… 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 charged in 2008.
In response to one of the quotes, one student said: “I just really think it’s hateful speech… the way he’s referring to people across the wall is dehumanizing.”
Another student said, “there are racial biases deeply embedded in there.”
You simply cannot make this stuff up.
Are they disassociated from reality and not paying attention to politics?
It’s fine if they’re not interested, but in that case, why would they assume that any one person said something instead of asking for more facts and verification first? Are they being told to hate Republicans and Trump?
Are they watching CNN and just going by whatever it is that hosts like Don Lemon come up with?
This video should be frightening, not for what they believe Trump said, but for the fact that these could be future leaders of our nation and they’re not off to a great start.
