Instapundit posted a video of Bill Clinton is truly surprising to see. With all of the hysteria over Donald Trump’s so-called “Muslim ban,” which is really just a moderate moratorium implemented poorly, it’s easy to forget how our nation has traditionally dealt with such issues.
First, the order temporarily halts refugee admissions for 120 days to improve the vetting process, then caps refugee admissions at 50,000 per year. Outrageous, right? Not so fast. Before 2016, when Obama dramatically ramped up refugee admissions, Trump’s 50,000 stands roughly in between a typical year of refugee admissions in George W. Bush’s two terms and a typical year in Obama’s two terms.
But close your eyes, try to forget the Southern accent, and perhaps add on a “and we’ll make Mexico pay for it” slogan to Bill Clinton’s words. You could easily imagine President Trump saying the exact same thing.
This shows you exactly how radical former President Obama’s refugee plan precisely was. These lines from Clinton, notice, got a standing ovation from liberals.
My how times have changed.
