President Donald Trump used the words of former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton for a border barrier and against illegal immigration to advocate Sunday for the same things.
“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,” Barrack Obama said in 2005 while still a U.S. Senator from Illinois.
“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,” then presidential candidate Hillary Clinton told a town hall audience in 2015 according to the Weekly Standard.
President Trump referenced Obama and Clinton Sunday in defense of the need to build a wall at the southern border, something reinstated House Speaker Nancy Pelosi refused this week to give any funding for.
