Hillary Clinton, Barrack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and a large collection of Democrats are lambasting the Trump administration for its “zero tolerance” policy at the border, which at times can put members of illegal immigrant families in separate detention centers. However, these same Democrats have supported similar policies in the past, and have voiced tough stances on illegal immigration. It’s only since Trump took office that their tones have changed.

Below are factual accounts of statements made by leading Democrats. Please share this post far and wide if you believe the immigration issue needs to be addressed once and for all, and that Democrats should stop with the phony tweets and statements that counter where they stood before hating Trump and everything his does became the platform of the Democratic Party.

In a 2014 video featuring Hillary Clinton discussing the influx of Central American children into the United States, she tells CNN’s Christiane Amanpour that the children who had entered America illegally “should be sent back.”

The discussion stems from the 2014 immigration surge of Central American families and unaccompanied children who were seeking asylum and trying to enter the U.S. illegally. The mass exodus was triggered in part by increasing violence in the areas from which most of the children came, including countries like Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador.

Clinton’s 2014 comments on the immigration surge are a stark contrast to her vehement opposition to President Donald Trump’s stance on immigration.

“Should they be able to stay here?” Amanpour asked. “It’s safer.”

Clinton responded, “Well, it may be safer, but that’s not the answer.”

Clinton later added, “They should be sent back as soon as it can be determined who responsible adults in their families are, because there are concerns whether all of them should be sent back. But I think all of them who can be should be reunited with their families.”
