Over the years, Democrats have gone from a party of border hawks to a party of amnesty doves.
During his 1995 State of the Union, President Bill Clinton warned about the problems illegal immigration caused for the country. Clinton touted steps his administration was taking to identify and deport illegal immigrants. He also spoke of how his administration would follow some of the proposals from former Congresswoman Barbara Jordan, chairwoman of the 1995 Commission on Immigration Reform.
In 2006, then-Senator Barack Obama voted for a border wall along with then-Senator Hillary Clinton and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.).
A Washington Free Beacon SUPERcut compiled video of current Democratic senators shows their evolution from border hawks to amnesty doves. Red-state Democrats like Sens. Joe Donnelly (D., Ind.), John Tester (D., Mont.) and Joe Manchin (D., W.Va.) voted in the past against the Dream Act, legislation that would have legalized “Dreamers” who entered the country illegally with their parents when they were minors. Now, the senators are in favor of legalizing the Dreamers.
