Illegal Immigration is a very tough topic to transcribe into policy, however, it is important that politicians remain steadfast and loyal to their political ideologies. democrats have over the years deviously changed their thoughts on immigration, while condemning others on the right side of the Klauz von Beyne spectrum for keeping their philosophies intact during this period of time. This is very unfair treatment toward citizens that fall on the right side, and don't identify complacently with leftist politics.

2006 Democratic philosophy on illegal immigration

During the Bush Administration in 2006, according to ObamaSpeeches, Obama said, “[Those that come to our country] legally, and those who employ them must respect the rules of law. And because we live in an age where terrorists are challenging our borders we cannot allow the poor into the US undetected, undocumented, and unchecked.”

This is a fantastic philosophy. The United States is not a haven for poverty-stricken citizens of Mexico, and other countries to illegally infiltrate our country for their own sake without regard for the law. Laws are established for all people in this country to follow. Everyone is held equally accountable for the law, and it is unfair for illegal immigration law to be ignored for the sake of undocumented aliens that want to invade.

Terrorist organizations are ubiquitous now, and we cannot afford to willingly let them through our borders without extreme vetting measures, and a secure feeling that these specific people have no ill intentions.

2017 Democratic philosophy on illegal immigration

However, two administrations later in 2017, ObamaSpeech quoted former POTUS Barack Obama as saying: “If there are disruptions in these countries, if there’s conflict, if there’s bad governance, if there’s war, if there’s poverty, in this new world that we live in, we can’t isolate ourselves, we can’t hide behind the wall.”

This sends Obama followers a completely revamped message.

Poverty is in fact everywhere. What happened to America first? We need to take care of our own wars, our own impoverished demographic, our own bad governance, our own conflict, and our own disruptions. Once our veterans have a flourishing Veterans Affairs program, maybe then we should reexamine our immigration laws and make more detailed provisions on procedures for immigrants.

However, we cannot afford for illegal immigrants to ignore the law to reap the abridged benefits of an illegal American citizen.

2018 and on?

In 2006, the state of these other countries simply did not matter in the eyes of Obama before he took office. The issue was the lethality of terrorism and the solubility of our borders that allow terrorists to permeate our nation’s integrity. But later in the Trump administration during 2017, Obama had a different perspective, pushing the Leftist narrative that terrorism isn’t the issue, but it is, however, our national responsibility to provide asylum and sanctuary for all those that flee their country in search of a better life?

We could not possibly take all citizens from poorer countries that need help. And even if we attempted to, we would have forced discrimination, a "Hunger Games" of illegal immigration, and that is a war we do not want to fight. Obama used illegal immigration as a platform for pushing his democratic political platform, and that is disgusting.

These two drastically different philosophies are what is tearing our country apart. Like former president Abraham Lincoln said, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” We cannot stand divided on this issue. This isn’t a Left or a Right issue, this is an American issue. We must come together as a country, and unite in the name of Old Glory, rekindling our nation’s fire to continue and put America first.
