Campus Reform visited a college and read quotes about, and against, illegal immigration. They were told the quotes were by Trump which immediately elicited a negative response and scolding of the current administration. Then, they were let in on a little secret. The quotes were actually from Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Hillary Clinton. The students were shocked in the video below.
Upon hearing the quotes, students said Trump’s words were “dehumanizing,” “problematic,” and “jingoist.”
“I just really think it’s hateful speech,” one student said, while another added, “the way he’s referring to people across the wall is dehumanizing.”
One student said the comments held racist undertones, claiming “there are racial biases deeply embedded in there.”
But this was all before they knew these quotes were actually coming from political idols of theirs.
The quotes include:
“Illegal Immigration is wrong, plain and simple. Until the American people are convinced we will stop future flows of illegal immigration, we will make no progress.” -Senator Chuck Schumer, 2009
“We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented and unchecked” -Barack Obama, 2005
“I voted numerous times… to spend money to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in. And I do think you have to control your borders.” -Hillary Clinton, 2008
