FLASHBACK: Schumer On "Illegal Immigration!"

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has been an outspoken critic of President Trump's immigration policies. He has refused to deal on DACA and he has accused the President of being racist for wanting to control our southern boarder.

However back in 2009, Schumer supported views against illegal immigration that sound extremely similar to what President Trump has said since 2015.

Well, Goll-lee Sgt. Carter!

Speaking at an immigration policy conference at Georgetown Law, Chucky Cheese Schumer said, "Illegal immigration is wrong, and a primary goal of comprehensive immigration reform must be to dramatically curtail future illegal immigration."

“When we use phrases like ‘undocumented workers,’ we convey a message to the American people that their government is not serious about combating illegal immigration, which the American people overwhelmingly oppose,” Schumer said. “If you don’t think it’s illegal, you’re not going to say it. I think it is illegal and wrong and we have to change it."

“People who enter the United States without our permission are illegal aliens, and illegal aliens should not be treated the same as people who entered the U.S. legally," Schumer said later in the speech.

Gosh, talk about a flip flop! Why do you think Chucky Cheese Shumer changed his position? I guess got Trumped into it!
