New Hampshire Voter Calls Out Bernie Sanders for Flip-Flopping on Mass Immigration
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.
