In his 1995 State of the Union address, President William J. Clinton called for stricter enforcement of immigration laws and condemned the damage illegal aliens, his very words, inflict on the public treasury and American workers.
Nothing shows how much the Democratic Party has changed in its heyday at the country’s majority party as its position on illegal immigration.
Clinton received a standing ovation from both sides of the House chamber that stopped the speech.
Today, Democrats celebrate illegal immigration and have gone so far as to give these aliens sanctuary from federal law enforcement in the jurisdictions they control.
Watch President William J. Clinton talk about his disgust with illegal aliens in his 1995 State of the Union address:
“All Americans, not only in the states most heavily affected, but in every place in this country, are rightly disturbed by the large numbers of illegal aliens entering our country. The jobs they hold might otherwise be held by citizens or legal immigrants,” said Clinton.
“That’s why our administration has moved aggressively to secure our borders more by hiring a record number of new border guards, by deporting twice as many criminal aliens as ever before, by cracking down on illegal hiring, by barring welfare benefits to illegal aliens,” he said.
The president also namechecked African-American civil rights leader Barbara C. Jordan, the former Democratic Member of Congress from Texas, Clinton named to lead the U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform in 1993.
“In the budget, I will present to you we will try to do more to speed the deportation of illegal aliens who are arrested for crimes, to better identify illegal aliens in the workplace as recommended by the commission headed by former congresswoman Barbara Jordan,” Clinton said.
In Jordan’s first commission report “U.S. Immigration Policy: Restoring Credibility,” it wrote:
Deportation is crucial. Credibility in immigration policy can be summed up in one sentence: Those who should get in, get in; those who should be kept out, are kept out; and those who should not be here will be required to leave.
Jordan was a strong defender of legal immigration who once said, “It is both a right and a responsibility of a democratic society to manage immigration so that it serves the national interest.”
It was Jordan, who also said: “Any nation worth its salt must control its borders.”
Clinton acknowledged in his address that American is a nation of immigrant, but he cautioned that we are a nation of laws.
“It is wrong and ultimately self-defeating for a nation of immigrants to permit the kind of abuse of our immigration laws we have seen in recent years, and we must do more to stop it,” he said.
Biden Executive Order Terminates Construction of New Border Wall
President Joe Biden signed an executive order halting the construction of new border wall on the southern border in one of his first actions as President.
The order terminates an emergency proclamation that allowed discretion to divert federal funding towards wall construction.
“The proclamation will direct an immediate pause in wall construction projects to allow a close review of the legal basis for the funding, as well as the contract methods being used, and it will determine the best ways to redirect funds that were diverted by the Trump administration to fund wall construction,” said Biden’s National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan.
The termination of wall construction comes as a Central American caravan numbering in the thousands travels through Honduras and Guatemala, with the intention of securing immigration amnesty from President Biden. The leaders of the caravan have cited Biden’s left-wing immigration promises as the imperative for its formation, demanding he honor what they see as promises of admittance.
Drug-cartel human smugglers are already chomping at the bit at the idea of resuming illegal immigration smuggling en masse during Biden’s presidency, assured that they’ll have free reign to infiltrate America’s borders in a manner akin to the state of affairs under previous establishment Presidents.
Biden also signed Trump’s executive order overturning a travel ban from several high-risk nations. Another executive order re-enrolls the United States into the globalist Paris Climate Accords, which mandates strict carbon emissions curbs on the United States without imposing similar requirements on China.
