Video: Remember When Obama Supported A Border Wall Too?

Liberals all over the world are jumping on the bandwagon against President Trump for fast-tracking the border wall with Mexico.

But they’re conveniently forgetting when a young Senator Barack Obama openly supported it too.

Here’s more from DC Statesman:

Barack Obama and the Democrats love to demonize Donald Trump when it comes to building a wall on the U.S. – Mexican border. But it wasn’t too long ago that Obama supported the idea. We have a clip of him on the senate floor pushing for a wall.

The video below is from Obama when he was in the senate. But he also supported it as president:

“A leaked internal memo from Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign says that fencing at the US-Mexico border could help cut down on illegal immigration.

“The memo, which was made public by anti-secrecy organization WikiLeaks, is dated September 7, 2008 and contains a list of immigration promises and proposals.

“One of Obama’s “core goals,” according to the memo: ‘Preserve the integrity of our borders to reduce illegal immigration.’

“‘Securing our borders will not solve the illegal immigration problem in isolation, but combined with an earned path to citizenship for the undocumented and new legal alternatives to unauthorized entry, some additional fencing could help get the border under control.’”
