Senate Minority Leader and anti-Trump crusader Chuck Schumer continued to slam the President’s proposal for border security this week; conveniently ignoring his tough-talk about illegal immigration less than ten years ago.
Footage surfaced on social media Thursday night of Schumer’s scathing critique of the country’s illegal immigration problem; saying people who violate the nation’s border laws were “illegal immigrants” and not “undocumented workers.”
Chuck Schumer in 2009:
-Americans don't like illegal immigration
-"Illegal immigration is wrong"
-People illegally in the U.S. are "illegal aliens," not "undocumented"
-Border fence made the southern border "far more secure…created a significant barrier to illegal immigration" pic.twitter.com/zoVyEgdrTC

“The American people are fundamentally pro-legal immigration and anti-illegal immigration. Illegal immigration is wrong, plain and simple,” said Schumer.
“Above all else the American people want their government to be serious about protecting the public and enforcing the law,” he added.
