Sen. Chris Coons says President Trump is mischaracterizing Democrats when he says they are open boarders. In a recent series of tweets the President says
however, for strictly political reasons and because they have been pulled so far left, do NOT want Border Security. They want Open Borders for anyone to come in. This brings large scale crime and disease. Our Southern Border is now Secure and will remain that way.
So who is right are democrats for open borders. Is the President lying about what democrats believe? Well according to recent Harvard-Harris poll a majority of Democrats believe in open boarder.
A staggering 53 percent of Democrats polled, however, believe that any immigrant that makes it to America’s borders should be allowed to stay. But despite Democrats saying they are against open borders, the majority of their base says otherwise.
IN 2013 Hillary Clinton who would become the Democrat nominee for President said in a private speech that she dreamed about open borders according to the Chicago Times.
"My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders, sometime in the future with energy that's as green and sustainable as we can get it, powering growth and opportunity for every person in the hemisphere," Clinton reportedly said to investors in a paid speech she gave to Brazilian Banco Itau in 2013.
And then there was the time Keith Ellison , the second in command at the DNC , said that borders 'create an injustice." Watch for yourself.
And we can not forget David Garcia who was the Democrat candidate for Governor in Arizona asking a crowd to imagine what a border without walls would be like.
So other than all these examples Sen. Chris Coons is right ... Democrats are not interested in open borders at all.
