One of the most effective things we do on the border is turn people back…they get up to the border and we find them and say, ‘go home!The same article has CSPAN video from 2009 with Schumer saying:
The American people need to know that, because of our efforts in Congress, our border is far more secure today than it was when we began debating comprehensive immigration reform in 2005. Between 2005 and 2009, a vast amount of progress has been made on our borders and ports of entry. This progress includes … construction of 630 miles of border fence that create a significant barrier to illegal immigration on our southern land border.Many Democrats formerly spoke in favor of border enforcement back when they still hoped to get white working class votes. Apparently Dems have given up on that demographic, which not only competes directly with illegals for both jobs and housing, but also suffers from their criminality.
Now Dems are counting on Hispanic votes, of which nearly a third go to Republicans. Their math doesn’t really work, does it? TDS is messing with their minds.
