In 2009 Senate Majority leader Chuck Schumer, whose party actually had the majority in the house and the senate along with President Obama in the white house had almost identical views as President Trump on illegals and they did nothing. His views on illegal immigration, even insisting the phrase “undocumented immigrant” is wrong and makes our government look less serious, were almost verbatim with what President Trump says today.
Why wasn’t Chuck looked at as a racist? Why wasn’t Obama looked at as a racist? His entire party had this exact same position as President Trump.
“Illegal Immigration is wrong, plain and simple” – Chuck Schumer, 2009
“When we use phrases like undocumented immigrants we convey a message that our government is not serious about combating illegal immigration. Which the American people overwhelming oppose.” – Chuck Schumer
This is exactly what is wrong with our politics today. America has amazingly short attention span and the left and the MSM bank on that. You won’t see this on CNN or MSNBC or read about it in any of the leftist controlled papers of the left.
