When Hypocritical Democrats Unanimously Supported Border Fencing (Just 5 Years Ago)

It’s hard to believe that just five years ago, Democrats unanimously voted in favor of building hundreds of miles of fencing along the US-Mexico border. What has changed since then?

President Trump is too icky for the Washington establishment. It’s not fair that uppity Americans elected Trump, because it was supposed to be Hillary’s turn to run the Washington uniparty.

President Trump turned a blaring spotlight onto the fact that Democrats hope to use open borders to turn American citizens into a hated and despised minority in the nation their ancestors built with blood, sweat and tears.

Hence, Democrat opposition to a policy they universally supported just a few years ago is now total.

The “Secure Fence Act of 2006” had wide bipartisan support when it was passed and signed into law. This act, of course, was a ruse.

It was initially mandatory under the law for the federal government to build approximately 700 miles of new double-layered fencing along the southern border.

It’s not a wall, but it was better than nothing. 80 Senators voted in favor of the 2006 law, including current Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, and Democrats Sherrod Brown, Dianne Feinstein, Ron Wyden and Debbie Stabenow.

A year later when Bush and chief strategist Karl Rove managed to lose control of the House, the Secure Fence Act was amended so that the fencing was now “optional.”

The federal government immediately abandoned the fence and it’s never been completed.

By 2013, Democrat support for border fencing was totally unanimous. Not one Democrat opposed the so-called “Gang of Eight” immigration reform and border control bill. (In fairness, they were probably remembering how they had suckered everyone with the 2007 amendment to the Secure Fence Act. “We’ll just change it later.”)

The Gang of Eight bill mandated 700 miles of new single-layer fencing to try to stem the flood of illegal aliens that has only accelerated since Reagan’s 1986 amnesty.

The Gang of Eight bill passed in the Senate with the support of every Democrat. Again: Every single Democrat supported the bill, which called for 700 miles of new fencing.

Support among House Democrats was likewise unanimous, but fortunately, the bill never came up for a vote there. The American people rose up and virtually melted the phone and fax lines in Congress with calls to vote down the proposal.

The big problem with the “Gang of Eight” bill was that it gave Democrats everything they wanted: Amnesty and a path to citizenship for as many as 50 million illegal aliens and all of their extended family members through chain migration and promises of a flimsy single-layer fence to be built at some nebulous future date.

It’s always the same refrain: Amnesty now, border security later.

The American people have been asking for a wall on our southern border since the Mexican Revolution a century ago. Here we are, with a president in office who is finally willing to follow through on that request – and Democrats are suddenly universally opposed to protecting America from our belligerent and dysfunctional southern neighbors.

Not a single Democrat is willing to budge on the president’s $5 billion request for a wall. They know that the president is not bluffing, and he will never fall for a sucker’s amendment the following year to suspend the building of the wall once it’s begun.

Many don’t even realize how incredibly porous our southern border actually is.

We only have 37 miles of double-layered fencing in place, despite the 2006 law calling for 700 miles of fencing. Another 14 miles along the border has triple-layer fencing.

354 miles has a flimsy single layer of fencing that anyone with a pair of wire cutters and strong hands can breach in a matter of minutes.

“Vehicle barriers” block about 300 miles of territory with obstacles that allow illegals to walk into America after the cartels drive them right up to the border. That leaves approximately 1,500 miles of the border completely wide open.

Granted, some of the territory is pretty rugged – but has that stopped illegals before?

Democrats unanimously supported closing the border off with fencing just a few years ago. The question now is whether they hate President Trump and America so much that they will never support controlling the border again.
