Presidents Reagan and H.W.Bush and Their Pro-Immigration Words
Today's TeaPublican Party members would hoot, stomp their little hooves, and loudly boo Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush off the stage for what they said about immigration during their debates in 1980. And if the Vulgar Talking Yam were on the stage with them, he'd holler "Get 'em the hell outta here!"
Don't believe the TeaPublican Party for a minute when they give homage to their idol, Ronald Reagan. Watch the video below and listen to what Reagan and his future vice president had to say about undocumented people who wish to work here or become citizens. Both Reagan and Bush would be run out of the present day TeaPublican Party quicker than it took the Trumper to change wives for what they said because an extreme, rabid group of pseudo-religious nihilists have taken over the party and are now poised to nominate one of the most unprepared, inexperienced fools ever supported by a major political party.
Speaking of our southern border, here's an email I received this AM about a 2006 vote on putting up a fence there. Both Senators Clinton and Obama voted in favor. The nay vote? Senator Bernie Sanders:
"Everyone keeps talking about the Trump wall, but people are not talking about an actual law creating a 700 mile multi-layered “secure fence” that both Senators Clinton and Obama voted YEA.
Bernie voted NAY in the House. People need to know the facts. If Trump is crazy to be talking about a wall, it’s just as crazy to have voted to build a multi-layered fence across our border stretching 700 miles. Right? The only real progressive in the race is Bernie Sanders."
Question: On Passage of the Bill (H.R. 6061 ) H.R. 6061 (Secure Fence Act of 2006 ) Vote Number: 262 Vote Date: September 29, 2006, 09:30 PM Clinton (D-NY), Yea Obama (D-IL), Yea Amends the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 to direct the Secretary to provide at least two layers of reinforced fencing, installation of additional physical barriers, roads, lighting, cameras, and sensors extending: (1) from ten miles west of the Tecate, California, port of entry to ten miles east of the Tecate, California, port of entry; (2) from ten miles west of the Calexico, California, port of entry to five miles east of the Douglas, Arizona, port of entry (requiring installation of an interlocking surveillance camera system by May 30, 2007, and fence completion by May 30, 2008); (3) from five miles west of the Columbus, New Mexico, port of entry to ten miles east of El Paso, Texas; (4) from five miles northwest of the Del Rio, Texas, port of entry to five miles southeast of the Eagle Pass, Texas, port of entry; and (5) 15 miles northwest of the Laredo, Texas, port of entry to the Brownsville, Texas, port of entry (requiring fence completion from 15 miles northwest of the Laredo, Texas, port of entry to 15 southeast of the Laredo, Texas, port of entry by December 31, 2008). States that if an area has an elevation grade exceeding 10% the Secretary may use other means to secure such area, including surveillance and barrier tools.
The video below shows how liberal both Ronald Reagan and H.W. Bush were in approaching immigration issues.
Today, no TeaPublican running for the presidency comes close to supporting what Presidents Reagan and H.W. Bush supported when the T-GOP was a sane political party.
How embarrassingly low the Republican Party has sunk. Not only has it lost its mind, but it has lost its soul as well.
