This week, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) transported a group of illegal immigrants from Florida to Martha’s vineyard.
Now, according to Fox News, Hillary Clinton is claiming that “no one wants open borders.”
Clinton on Friday made an appearance on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. There, she went after DeSantis and the other Republican governors who have been transporting illegal immigrants from their states to Democrats-run areas of the country.
In Clinton’s view, what the Republican governors are doing amounts to “human trafficking.”
“I think, Joe, you have laid out the craziness of the time in which we’re living where some politicians would rather not only have an issue but exacerbate it to the extent of literally human trafficking, as you said,” Clinton stated.
She then went on a tangent in which she expressed her belief that “the majority of Americans,” – presumably Americans in those Democrat-led parts of the countries where the illegal immigrants are being sent – will respond by, essentially, welcoming the immigrants with open arms.
“Nobody wants open borders”
It was at this point in the interview that Clinton made the perplexing claim that “nobody wants open borders who has any idea of how government and countries work.”
That’s absolutely true. But, what makes this claim so perplexing is that open borders appear to be exactly what countless Democrat leaders, including President Joe Biden, want.
Why else, after all, would Biden immediately reverse just about all of former President Donald Trump’s immigration policies upon taking office? And, why else would the Biden administration refuse to secure the southern border, allowing, at times, over 200,000 illegal immigrants to cross the border in a month?
Clinton, nonetheless, continued by making another surprising claim, saying:
But nobody wants inhumane terrible treatment of human beings either. What we should have been doing is to come together to reform change and better fund the system by which we deal with these issues. But some people, like [Gov. Greg Abbott] of Texas, would rather have an issue than be part of a solution.
What of it?
It’s a massive turn-around for a Democrat such as Clinton to be making statements like these, and it appears to be the result of DeSantis and others sending illegal immigrants to Democrat-run parts of the country.
Given what we know about Clinton, it’s fair to question her sincerity in this interview. But, one thing is clear, which is that many Democrat leaders don’t seem to like the idea of illegal immigrants showing up on their doorsteps: they want open borders, but they don’t want illegal immigrants in their neighborhoods.
