Voter Calls Bernie Sanders Out for Flip-Flopping on Immigration

Of all the 2020 presidential candidates, Senator Bernie Sanders has probably been the most honest and consistent. Unlike Elizabeth Warren, he was truthful with America about his healthcare plan raising our taxes. And even though most of his policies would bring our nation to ruin under socialism or worse, he has stood by them for the most part, unlike just about every other White House hopeful who has changed their course a time or two to suit what they think voters want.

However, even he isn’t perfect in his steadfastness. Contrary to what he might claim, he has drastically changed his opinion of one very critical platform issue: Immigration and open borders.

And one voter in New Hampshire made sure to point this out.

A woman at a campaign event in Derry, New Hampshire, noted to the crowd that at one time Sanders had quite a different idea on immigration, believing that the influx of non-American workers in the US would be bad for the economy as well as detrimental to the lives of hard-working citizens. She wanted to know why he changed such a stance and why now, at a time when he is seeking constant voter approval.

She said, “One issue that you have not been consistent on is open borders. When you first ran, you said it was a Koch brothers’ scheme, and seemed to recognize that low-wage workers being dumped into the country does not help low-wage workers.”

She noted that like quite a few in the US, her family already stands at 134% of the poverty line and that low-wage immigrant workers were partly to blame for that.

So she asked, “Can you please explain why you changed on that issue? Did you have to change? Because donors seem to want the low-wage workers?”

Naturally, the Vermont Senator was unwilling to admit that he had changed, basically, calling what the woman had asked him the wrong use of terminology.

He responded by saying, “What I believe in absolutely is – I don’t believe in ‘open borders.’ Open borders means anybody can come from any place in the world. There’s no country in the history of the world, I think, that has ever had that view. That is not my view, but my view is that we have 11 million undocumented – many of those workers, by the way, are being exploited right now.”

Mostly, he is trying to turn these woman’s words against her, citing the phrasing she used was wrong. Apparently, for him, the term ‘open borders’ is much too broad and not at all what he is doing.

And yet in the very next few sentences, he implies that same type of broad brush strokes to be painted on President Trump.

“Trump wants to throw everybody out of the country. If he threw people out of the country, the price of food in this country would skyrocket. Who do you think is picking the crops and planting all over this country?”

So if by this woman’s standards, Bernie has an open border policy, then Trump must have a closed border policy. But if that is the case, then just as Bernie doesn’t really want just anybody to come here, Trump is not saying everyone should get out.

There are many more details on both sides. And those details are what matters. Just like Bernie insists there are things, such as the 11 million undocumented immigrants already here, that need to be addressed.

Trump is not saying that we kick them all out. What he is saying is that we need to be more careful about who we let in in the future. And as far as the ones who are already here, we need to make sure they are abiding by our laws and not taking wrongly from tax-paying Americans.

Sanders, on the other hand, is a lot more all-inclusive than Trump, no matter what he wants to call it. He has already noted on several occasions that one of the first things he would do as Commander in Chief would be the undoing of all immigration policies Trump enacted.

He also said he would decriminalize illegal border crossings, ban nearly all deportations, dismantle Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP), and even spend millions in taxpayer money to tear down parts of Trump’s wall.

I’m sorry, but if that doesn’t sound like open borders to you, I don’t know what will.

  1. Democrats suck and can’t ever be trusted. Self serving group of weird people out for themselves always.
    Democrats party is close to death and dont resuscitate

  2. I’ll wager that Bernie Sanders would become much more explicit about his policies of “Open Borders” if he awoke some fine morning to view an entire “Migrant Caravan” taking shelter in and living in his own backyard. They wouldn’t have to ask him twice to utilize his kitchen and extra bedrooms before Sanders found a whole new level of cooperation with the ICE & Immigration authorities. If America is truly as Liberal as they portray, it makes sense to wonder why don’t these lawbreakers seek out and demand refuge from those Political supporters like Bernie who advocate their illegal presence? TRUMP – 2020 “Make America American Again!”

  3. Bernie Sanders is so wrong and outrageous on so many levels it is impossible to even
    think or discuss the possibility of him or anyone like him becoming president of
    the United States of America.

    1. Well, unfortunately, Sanders and most colleges have managed to brainwash a lot of the teenagers about to vote that don’t know shit from a hole in the ground including, immigration problems, taxes, etc., but they do know that everything is going to be free if you vote for him – Just like living at home with mommy and daddy.

    2. If Bernie Sanders wins this country will definitely go down faster than than anything we have ever seen. That’s all he does is put down Donald Trump, his ideas are out of touch & not right for this country
      What scares me is that young people want Socialist Society. We are a free Nation, why do they think being controlled will cause us to prosper & live freely? I may always agree all the time w/ Trump example: why lower food stamps for people who really need them. Start w/the Rich people. Not us
      Still my vote for Trump. I do not see any other candidates worthy of the job.

  4. There are probably 40 million plus illegal aliens residing in this country.
    What is with these people running for office that they cannot allow themselves to protect the American workers. All if my life I heard that the working must vote for democraps but I refused and did not.
    Remember ” the party for the working man”
    Or your health insurance cost will go down by half?
    Do not forget these and all of the other atrocities perpetrated against American workers by democrats.

    1. Paul, they are only protecting themselves. By allowing all the illegals in, allowing them to get drivers’ licenses, allowing them to vote and take benefits, they are ensuring their vote, and yes, the do vote and soon the liberals will make it legal for them to vote. You take that and the liberals wanting to eliminate the electoral college, then California, NY and Texas will decide who is president from now on. The Dems will keep themselves wealthy and break the rest of us, particularly if the voters put a socialist in the WH. And a poll showed that something over 70% of young voters favor socialism, and that is because they want someone else to pay for what they get – education/school loans, medical care, guaranteed wage, etc. That brings us full circle to open borders and putting a Democrat in the WH through illegals voting.

    2. The DEMOCRATS have never really been for the working class. When I was a kid, in 60’s, I asked my dad what party he belonged to? He told me in no uncertain terms or words, Republican. He told me, the Dems were in power for one reason and one reason only, more power for gov’t, and less for the American people. That was a scarey statement.

  5. Simple. Bernie will build walls to keep us all in and unable to leave the country. As in Russia. Walls keep the people trapped in the country against their will. He will also give Alaska back to Russia and sell Hawaii back to the people. That is what communist do. Bernie will kill all who do not agree with him as Putin is doing now.

  6. Keith Ellison wore a T-Shirt at some outdoor function saying No Creyo Fronteras – or something like that. Translation – I don’t believe in borders. THAT has to get out more.

    Also, people MUST ask, well, if you DID believe in open borders, how would your policies be different from what you are proposing now?

  7. The left is trying to convince people that they are victims and the government can solve their problems. This is an attempt to make people weak and dependent. Teaching them that they don’t need to be accountable and responsible for their actions, school loans, college education, … Big gov’t will take care of you. This disgusting and destructive to the American people.

    1. Just like all the Democrat controlled metropolitan areas across the country. They make the people believe they are the victims of society & make promises to give them everything & anything,but never follow thru on those promises. But they are able to control them by taxing as much as they can & regulate anything they do by making up stupid laws just to make laws.

  8. Bernie “IS” the prime candidate for ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, OPEN BORDERS, FREE COLLEGE FOR ALL, GREEN NEW DEAL, ELIMINATE STUDENT LOAN DEBT, and MEDICARE for all, WHICH WILL BANKRUPT THE USA ! Now he “CANNOT DO ALL OF THIS WITHOUT THE CONGRESS and THE HOUSE! SO as of NOW it is ALL SMOKE AND MIRRORS! If you REMEMBER before TRUMP, elected Presidents only actually acheived 1 per cent of what they PROMISED during the election! SO THIS IS “ALL BS and is ONLY TO WIN” so for you who support what he is saying IT IS A FAIRY TALE THAT YOU ARE BELIEVING WILL HAPPEN, when it won’t even be close!

    1. The middle class will be taxed to death and will wind up in the “have not” group, but ol’ Bernie and the one perecenters will remain just as wealthy, if not more, and be drunk on their own power. I’m 75 and I hope to God I don’t see it happen.

      1. Then get ur GUNS and load them get more ammo than u need ,be observant , even the emperor of Japan knew better than these sorry excuse’s for so called ( americans), I used the little a because they are really Communist/ SOCIALIST folks get ur shit straight , it’s gonna happen.

  9. According to one calculation, the cost of illegal immigrants exceeded $250 billion last year and Trump wanted $5 billion for the wall. A thousand miles of the wall will get built; let’s finish it.

  10. The last true Democratic president that had the good of all the American people in mind and actions was JFK. And we all know what the deep state did to him.
    Every one since has had it in to destroy the American way of life. Three absolute truths to get through life
    1. Life isn’t easy or fair
    2. No one will look out for you and yours if you don’t.
    3. When push comes to shove the Gov’t. will take more than they will give.

    There is no free lunch. Instead of racking up more student debt than they can afford, get a job and take it in steps. A Masters or Bachelors in liberal arts or some such doesn’t mean anything if you have to ask if they want fries with that burger.

  11. I predict Bernie will have another heart attack look at him he looks like the walking dead he is a lying corpse that wants to get back at what he calls a very unfair system I suggest go read about Bernie Sanders he is a con artist preys on young and innocent look at his crowds

    1. He is such a loud no smiles pushing his communist idiotic ideas to the young snowflakes who have no idea what’s i
      like to sacrifice. Please shut him down quickly before he tries to run everything this country stands for Bernie made most of his money living off welfare and now is is another loudmouth million man who can’t sling be to all young spoiled children that considers themself as an adult god help USA

      to work and fend for themselves unless

  12. Dimotwits have a hard time with the English language….”It depends upon what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is. If the—if he—if ‘is’ means is and never has been, that is not—that is one thing. If it means there is none, that was a completely true statement”……
    Only a hack CLIToon could spew such crap!

  13. COME ON PEOPLE…BERNIE SANDERS IS A COMMUNIST AT HEART. HE’S SECURED HIS MILLIONS AND SO HE COULD CARE LESS ABOUT YOU OR I HAVING ANY POSSESSIONS OR FOOD TO EAT!
    ***I’VE GOT A CHALLENGE FOR OLD, OLD, OLD BERNIE-BABY; WE VOTE FOR YOU IF YOU’LL GIVE AWAY ALL YOUR MILLIONS AND SECURE A SPOT IN COMMONERS CLASS.
    (OF COURSE HE WON’T THE TWO-FACED PRICK!)

  14. did you realy think he would tell you the truth he just turn it around to make himself look like he cares. he’s a socialist you will be one till the day you die the leopards dont change there spot.

  15. I have one question … Has Bernie Sanders ever been associated with George Soros in any way? Or has Soros ever contributed to Sanders or has Sanders ever asked Soros for money?

  16. comunist burny u are lying sack of shit did u ever saying rich should pay more taxes are u ever pay more on ur taxes as a help to irs are u ever pay any ones student lone to help them u are the bigest lier are u evere saying when u become president u gonna donate ur salary to those student lones never u full of bull shit and how u gonna pass madecare all in a congrass and sanat tell that to amercans u just lie after lie u are begest danger for america not trump u skum bag komy

  17. I believe that ANYONE wanting open borders really only want two things from it. Drugs and human trafficking-all for their own gain and no one is going to change my mind about that because that is exactly what IS happening.

  18. Unbelievable……! Lies just flow out of the Old Bastards mouth…. like crap shooting through a goose….! His entire Gullible Booger Eating audience just lapping it all up too…..! Hey Commie Bernie….! How much will all these Freebies Cost…? Dunno…! No One Knows….! O.K. Comrade Kool…!

  19. Way to MUCH talk and whining about nothing, people best get ur damn guns, that’s all they know read up on 1888, Connecticut. Nuff said if ur afraid to die than vote DEMOCOMUNIST ,and DEAL WITH IT. 68-71 V.N.

  20. Abundantly clear that the Democrats are intent upon displacing and supplanting U.S. citizens with illegal immigrants. They know that the majority of U.S. citizens will never support their totalitarian ideas. It is all about consolidating their power. Bolshevik Bernie even advocates permitting murderers and terrorists the right to vote, because criminals make good Democrats, and vice versa.

  21. Don’t exploit illegal immigrant workers! JUST KEEP THEM THE HELL OUT OF THIS COUNTRY!!

    KEEP AMERICA GREAT 2020…VOTE TRUMP!!!!

  22. Let me get this straight…..! The Old Commie Bastard will try and turn the nation into a 3rd world crappy commie nation before being rebuked by congress & the senate…. Bernie will do just enough damage before he croaks 5 months into his presidency leaving Hillary or the Horilla Michelle or Hippo Oprah as president…..! No Gracias…..!

  23. She should have MOONED Bernie because he deserves it and it will make him scream! Anyone who sees Bernie needs to MOON him on the spot!
