20 Years Ago Bill Clinton Agreed With Trump on Illegal Immigration Video

President Bill Clinton was saying the same thing that GOP nominee Donald Trump has been saying this election cycle. In his 1996 State of the Union address, Bill Clinton uttered the following words:

“After years of neglect, this administration has taken a strong stand to stiffen the protection of our borders. We are increasing border controls by 50 percent. We are increasing inspections to prevent the hiring of illegal immigrants. And tonight, I announce I will sign an executive order to deny federal contracts to businesses that hire illegal immigrants.”
An overwhelming majority of conservatives will agree with that statement. However, if you fast forward 20 years, you get the exact opposite from the 42nd president’s wife:
“The American people support comprehensive immigration reform not just because it’s the right thing to do — and it is — but because they know it strengthens families, strengthens our economy, and strengthens our country … We can’t wait any longer for a path to full and equal citizenship,” Hillary Clinton said in May.
The double standard of the Democrat Party is simply ludicrous. When Donald Trump says these words — and he has — the sky is suddenly falling.

But Bill Clinton, who said these words and more, remains the hero of the party. Seems reasonable.
