AWOL on the wall

Michael Ahrens - January 6, 2018

Less than 5 years ago, all 54 Democrats in the Democrat-controlled Senate voted to:

  • double the length of a new border fence with Mexico
  • end the diversity visa lottery
  • spend $40 billion on border security
  • double the number of border agents to 40,000
  • stop family members of U.S. citizens from coming here on reunification visas
  • create “merit-based” visas

Before that, in 2006, Democrats like Chuck Schumer, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Joe Biden voted to construct hundreds of miles of fencing along the border. (See: Boston Globe headline: “In 2006, Democrats were saying 'build that fence!'")

But terrified of upsetting their militantly-liberal base, Democrats have gone AWOL on the very policies they supported just a few years ago.  

Don’t let Democrats forget their long history of supporting many of the same measures President Trump is championing today.
