Video flashback: President Clinton condemns ‘illegal aliens’ in 1995 SOTU

Published

on

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.

San Francisco Board of Elections to Allow Non-Citizens to Vote

Published

on

After two failed votes, the San Francisco Board of Elections has finally attained its goal of allowing illegal immigrants to vote in local elections.

“Monday the Department of Elections Issued Voter Registration Forms for non-citizens who are eligible to vote for members of the San Francisco Board of Education in the November 6th 2018 election,” says an ABC San Francisco report. “The measure passed in 2016 with a close vote of 54 percent to 46 percent following two failed previous attempts.”

San Francisco will be the first city in California to allow illegals to vote.

“We want to give immigrants the right to vote,” said Supervisor Norman Yee who represents District 7.

Immigrants already have the right to vote – legal ones, that is. But the political left continues to make a mockery of the American immigration system, spitting in the faces of everyone who comes to this country legally.

“As a parent myself and a former member of the SF Board of Education it is critical that the voices of all parents are at the table particularly those that have historically been denied a voice in the process,” said Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer who represents District 1.

Some sane people disagreed with the vote.

Harmeet Dhillon, Republican National Committeewoman from California voted against the measure in 2016, and spoke out against the latest vote.

“The reason I voted against it is that I think the right to vote is something that goes along with citizenship and should be,” Dhillon said. “I don’t think that people who have otherwise tenuous ties to San Francisco given their lack of legal residence should be making long term decisions about that structure and process.”

Now, the only requirement to vote in the San Francisco Board of Education election is being a resident of the city who is 18 years of age at the time of the election.

The measure allows illegals to vote through 2022, unless the city permanently adopts the ordinance.
