Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) took it on the chin during a stop in New Hampshire after a voter called him out for his flip-flop on mass immigration.
Before Sanders began running for president, he opposed open borders and mass immigration because he knew it would drive wages for American workers down. He capitulated to win radicalized Democrat voters on the campaign trail, and the so-called people’s champion threw U.S. workers under the bus.
“I’m here because you seem like one of the most authentic candidates running right now so I wanted to hear what you had to say and how authentic you really are, and by the way, nobody believes for a minute that you told Elizabeth Warren that a woman can’t…make it for President,” a woman named Christine said to Sanders, explaining that she is a swing voter who has voted Republican and Democrat in the past.
“So one issue you have not been consistent on is open borders,” she continued. “When you first ran, you said it was a Koch Brothers scheme, and seemed to recognize that low-wage workers being dumped into the country does not help low-wage workers.”
“Can you explain why you changed on that issue? Did you to have to change because the donors seem to want the low-wage workers?” she asked.
Sanders responded by talking out of both sides of his mouth.
“What I believe in absolutely is I don’t believe in open borders. If open borders, anybody can come from any place in the world. There is no country in the history of the world, I think, that has ever had that view. That is not my view,” Sanders responded.
He went off track from there, explaining globalist economic dogma about how prices would skyrocket if Trump deported illegal immigrants.
“We have 11 million undocumented here. Many of those workers by the way are being exploited right now. Trump wants to throw everybody out of the country. If he threw out people out of the country, the price of food in this country would skyrocket. Who do you think is picking the crops and planting all over this country?” Sanders said.
He then outlined his policy to give amnesty to illegal aliens and prevent ICE from being able to enforce immigration law.

Sanders wasn’t always this way. He used to go on Lou Dobbs and talk with the patriotic talk show host about why mass immigration harms the American worker.
This video of Sanders talking to Dobbs on CNN from 2007 seems straight out of bizarro world in the current political landscape:
This questioner nailed Sanders on his hypocrisy and exposed Sanders’ Achilles heel if he becomes the Democrat nominee and takes on President Trump in 2020.
Iowa Certifies Republican Congressional Candidate as Winner by SIX VOTES
The closest congressional election in decades.
The Iowa State Board of Canvass voted on Monday to certify a Republican congressional candidate as the winner of an election for the state’s 2nd district, with a recount leaving Mariannette Miller-Meeks up on Democrat Rita Hart by a mere six votes.
The final standing result for the election of Iowa’s 2nd congressional district leaves Miller-Meeks with 196,964 votes, and Hart with 196,568 votes. Miller-Meeks’ margin of victory had stood at 47 votes before a mandatory recount, dwindling to a final lead of a half dozen. The election is slated to become the closes congressional race in the United States since 1984, and the closest in Iowa since 1916.
Hart is expected to legally challenge the vote after Monday’s certification. A GOP victory in the Democrat-leaning swing district would be the 14th Republican pickup this year, significantly eroding the Democrat majority in the House of Representatives.
“While the race is extraordinarily close, I am proud to have won this contest and look forward to being certified as the winner,” said Miller-Meeks, an Iowa State Senator representing Ottumwa on Saturday when declaring victory. “It is the honor of a lifetime to be elected to serve the people of eastern and southern Iowa. Iowans are tenacious, optimistic and hardworking, and I will take those same attributes to Washington, D.C., on their behalf.”
The recount process had proven dramatic, with results of Miller-Meeks’ outstanding lead placed in jeopardy when a recount board identified and counted dozens of absentee ballots that weren’t previously accounted for. It’s likely Hart will litigate in hopes of getting county clerks to count additional ballots that had been ruled unlawful.
As the nation demands answers to allegations of pervasive election misconduct and voter fraud, it’s worth noting that only a handful of ballots can overturn the end result of many local, county, and state elections. Let no illegal ballot infiltrate the final count, and let no legal vote go uncounted.
