2009 Video of Chuck Schumer Just DESTROYED Democrats’ Credibility on Border Wall

Top Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) is currently locked in a budget battle with President Trump over funding for the much-talked about border wall.

In fact, the government is currently shut down while both sides dig in their heels, with Democrats adamantly refusing to agree to fund the border wall and increase border security.

However, Schumer must have had a recent change of heart because he spoke exactly like Trump on the issue in 2009.

A video has reemerged showing Schumer talking tough on border security and even endorsing the idea of a border wall.

Watch the video below:

“The first of these seven principles is that illegal immigration is wrong, plain and simple,” Schumer said. “When we use phrases like ‘undocumented workers,’ we convey a message to the American people that their government is not serious about combating illegal immigration, which the American people overwhelmingly oppose.”

He continued: “People who enter the United States without our permission are illegal aliens, and illegal aliens should not be treated the same as people who entered the United States legally. Any immigration solution must recognize that we must do as much as we can to gain operational control of our borders as soon as possible.”

But here’s the kicker: Schumer also said the construction of a border wall represented a “significant barrier to illegal immigration.”

“The American people need to know that, because of our efforts in Congress, our border is far more secure today than it was when we began debating comprehensive immigration reform in 2005,” Schumer said.

He added: “This progress includes … construction of 630 miles of border fence that create a significant barrier to illegal immigration on our southern land border.”

He had better hope his fellow Democrats don’t see the video…

    This idiot hypocrite does not belong in Congress or anywhere else of importance. Unbelievable that we have people like this making decisions for the safety of Americans.

    Well well we’ll. What version is Schumer going to be in a couple of months? He’s just an obstructionist who would do anything to get illegals into the U S and making sure they become democrat voters. It’s all about politics and socialism with Chuckie boy now!

    Shummer must have forgotten the comments he made in 2009, now in 2018 he’s surcome to a change of heart and is opposed to a border fence, wall or barrier (whatever). This is not a Senator that is making America safe but one that is concerned with getting illegal votes and opposing President Trump. SHAME on you and to think our tax dollars pay you for misrepresenting the citizens of th U S.

    The left must have very short memories or is it they just hate President Trump so much that they don’t care how many Americans die at the hands of ILLEGALS.

    What a slimy weasel! My apologies to actual weasels! This creep needs to slink back into that swamp that our President is draining! Anybody that doesn’t see what these socialist democrats are doing are either blind or just stupid! I resent it if one cent of my tax money being paid to these useless Anti-American resistors!

    I have no problem with immigrants coming in the states as long as they do it legal. what’s wrong with doing it legally.

      Nothing as long as it’s within reason. Think about it for a bit, does it really make a lot of sense to have hundreds, thousands, or tens of thousands of immigrants come into the United States when we have so many homeless, and starving that we can’t figure out how to take care of now? And, I’m not even including our vets that are living on the streets (now that is an even greater travesty).

    This is precisely why I voted for Trump and why I will again! For the last 50 years I’ve listened to politicians talk about our problems and how to solve them…and nothing has ever been done. After 50 years of professional politicians and lawyers, who by the way, are trained in public speaking to not offend anyone, I saw a businessman who spoke plainly about the same problems and showed the courage to DO something and truly tackle these big issues. My party truly abandoned me years ago with a liberal and socialist agenda I want no part of, so I’m now a proud Republican and seeing light again and people taking responsibility for themselves, respecting life and less government oversight in all of the governments business.

      David and none of those you mentioned have ever worked with their hands and as most being Lawyers need to be banned again from civilization as they were a couple of hundred years ago. They are the root of all of our problems. Though there are a few exceptions, very few.
      While the President has worked with his father on just about every trade has worked with his father since he was a young boy.

    He forgot because he lets Nancy tell him what to say and do .. HE ACTS LIKE HE IS AFRAID TO STAND HIS GROUND WHEN HE’S AROUND HER .. She doesn’t know herself what she is doing most of the time .. Putting illegals ahead of the American people is very stupid on her part .

    Where is the Republicans backlash on this.?? Why isn’t this video all over the internet and the news? No the news is giving the Shoomer of today all the air time .The Dems are doing what they always do. turning the talking points around to the people effected by the shutdown and putting the onus on the President when they said from the beginning , when President.Trump was elected that they would not support him on any thing he wanted to do.All this nonsense about “how do we solve this” is at the feet of the Congressional Republicans to do their job , stand with the President and expose the Democrats agenda for what it is. Politics plain and simple.

    Schumer is the lowest form of life the NY voter ever put into office.
