CNN spoke with Former President Bill Clinton (D) regarding the border crisis and here’s what he had to say.
Clinton stated that there is an obvious limit to the number of migrants that the U.S. can take in before the country hits a severe disruption.
The former president’s statement is the exact opposite of what other Democrats have advocated for.
Clinton explained to podcast host Fareed Zakaria, “There is a limit to how many migrants any society can take without severe disruption and assistance, and our system is based much more on an assumption that things would be more normal.”
Meanwhile U.S. Customs and Border Protection have detained over 203,598 immigrants attempting to enter the country from the southern border in just the month of August alone.
Ironically, prior to Clinton’s remarks, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) asserted that the U.S. “is the wealthiest nation in the world and we have more than enough to care for everyone.”
I guess she is completely blind to the fact that the country is tens of trillions of dollars in debt.
Clinton also mentioned how the immigration challenges faced in present day are very different compared to what he experienced growing up.
Additionally, he fired back at Republicans for sending illegal immigrants to blue sanctuary cities.
“What’s happening in Venezuela, more than 2 million refugees pouring into first Colombia then nearby countries, has created unprecedented new challenges and meanwhile provides opportunities for stunts like Gov. Abbott’s — sending his refugees to some place that he thinks is advocating for a broad-minded policy that it doesn’t have to live with,” Clinton said.
Unfortunately, the former president claimed that it’s likely DeSantis sending illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard “may come back to haunt him a little bit.”
