Trump tagged for hate speech saying the same thing for which Bill Clinton got standing ovation

On Fox News Sunday former presidential aspirant and neurosurgeon Ben Carson expressed to host Chris Wallace dismay of the blatant hypocrisy regarding Bill Clinton and Donald Trump remarks on illegal immigration.

Here is part of Bill Clinton’s 1995 “State of the Union” address:

“All Americans, not only in the states most heavily affected but in every place in this country, are rightly disturbed by the large numbers of illegal aliens entering our country….The jobs they hold might otherwise be held by citizens or legal immigrants. The public service they use impose burdens on our taxpayers.

“That’s why our administration has moved aggressively to secure our borders more by hiring a record number of new border guards, by deporting twice as many criminal aliens as ever before, by cracking down on illegal hiring, by barring welfare benefits to illegal aliens.”

Clinton went on to assure Congress that in his forthcoming budget proposal he would “try to do more to speed the deportation of illegal aliens who are arrested for crimes, to better identify illegal aliens in the workplace as recommended by the commission headed by former Congresswoman Barbara Jordan.”

Jordan, a black Democrat from Texas, was a staunch opponent of illegal immigration. From 1994 until her death two years later, she chaired the U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform. The group sought more restrictions on immigration and called for deportation of illegal aliens and more penalties for employers who employed illegal aliens.

Clinton ended his remarks on illegal immigration to a standing ovation from lawmakers, saying:

“We are a nation of immigrants. But we are also a nation of laws. It is wrong and ultimately self-defeating for a nation of immigrants to permit the kind of abuse of our immigration laws we have seen in recent years, and we must do more to stop it.”

    Utter hypocrisy!

    We need to use the power of our votes to make sure the Clinton Family never returns to the
    White House.

    Thank you Foster. Our Constitution is a thorough and thoughtful guide to the manner in which people should be governed. The Americans who put our Constitutional law in place knew there was one essential element required to ensure our Liberty: principled men. Over the past 24 years we have entrusted our peace, safety, and future to deceitful leaders who have betrayed their oaths. These leaders, and their accomplices world wide, have soiled our schools, our courts, our Congress, our economy, and our will. We need honest enforcement of all laws for all citizens. Immigration is not a serious domestic threat; ILLEGAL immigration is. We should take our blinders off, thank God for the many souls who travel here to pledge their families and goodwill to our future. Mexican-Americans are an important part of the American spirit; and have been for more than 200 years. Let’s stop ignoring the concept of amnesty… immediately. Families are being slaughtered AT OUR BORDERS while we wait. Blessings on us all.

    That statement is not true, or perhaps it is, you’re standing up for Trump so Clinton likely did get a standing ovation – from you!
