To the Editor:
In a reply to a recent letter to the editor regarding a border wall, the responder stated: “Democrats were never ‘for’ an impossibly expensive and complicated construction project that would be useless for it’s intended purpose and would be a symbol of the stupidity of Trump and his supporters.”
Apparently that person and many others have not heard or seen the montage of the Democrat hierarchy coming out in support of, in fact promoting, a border wall. The montage dates from 2003 to 2016 and includes actual video and audio of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi supporting the construction of a “wall”, “barrier”, etc. in order to battle the national emergency of illegal aliens flooding our country. In every sound clip they used the exact same verbiage as President Trump is using now. They decried the influx of drugs, gang members, murderers, rapist, you name it invading the U-S across our southern border. They warned of the financial ramifications of people unable to support themselves being supported by various government sponsored social programs. They stated firmly that these illegals should never be allowed to vote.
Clinton, in a campaign speech when running for the Senate from New York stated she had voted for the wall three times!
However, once she was defeated in the Presidential election in 2016 all of the patriarchs of the Democrat Party did a complete 180 so fast it makes your head spin. It all boils down to the primary Democrat philosophy: “The country be damned. Trump Bad!!”
