FLASHBACK: Harry Reid Slams Illegal Immigration In 1993 Speech

Harry Reid Slams Illegal Immigration In 1993 Speech

A 1993 video of former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid demonstrates the sheer hypocrisy of the left.

In the video, Reid discussed the problems associated with illegal immigration and suggested that the U.S. was crazy to provide the children of illegal immigrants born in the country with citizenship.

“If making it easy to be an illegal alien isn’t easy enough, how about offering a reward for being an illegal immigrant?” he asked.

“No sane country would do that, right? Guess again.

“If you break our laws by entering this country without permission and give birth to a child, we reward that child with citizenship and guarantee a full access to all public and social services this country provides,” Reid said. “That’s a lot of services.”

He went on to suggest that it was no wonder that two-thirds of the babies born at county hospitals in Los Angeles were born to illegal alien mothers.

Take a look:

That same year, Reid introduced the Immigration Stabilization Act of 1993, which would have ended birthright citizenship, clamped down on asylum seekers and expanded deportation of criminal aliens.

Amazing. What’s even more amazing is how Reid and his fellow Democrats have done a complete turnaround on this issue.

The left thoroughly excoriated President Donald Trump for comments he made about illegal immigration during his presidential campaign. They have made outrageous claims about immigration and even suggested that it isn’t “illegal” to be “illegal.”

In fact, to this day, Democrats have reacted to Trump’s call to crack down on illegal immigration as hateful because it would separate families.

Yet there is Reid, standing before Congress making his plea about how dangerous and insane these ideas are.

The mainstream media won’t touch this video because it reveals the utter hypocrisy of the left. It reveals how Democrats are motivated not by what is best for this country but for what will keep them in office.
