It appears Sen. Chuck Schumer has been giving out contradicting opinions on immigration reform over the years.
On Tuesday, the Senate Minority Leader said that the Trump administration’s decision to end DACA was “heartless,” but in 2009, he issued a completely different perspective on illegal immigration.
During s Immigration Law & Policy Conference at Georgetown Law, Schumer gave a speech in which he repeatedly condemned illegal immigration as “wrong,” arguing that legal immigration should be encouraged.
“The American people are fundamentally pro-legal immigration and anti-illegal immigration,” Schumer stated. “We will only pass comprehensive reform when we recognize this fundamental concept.”
“The following seven principles are all based on this concept and comprise what I believe to be the framework for a bill that can receive overwhelming and bipartisan congressional support,” he said.
“First, illegal immigration is wrong,” Schumer declared, “and a primary goal of comprehensive immigration reform must be to dramatically curtail future illegal immigration.”
